Energy Policy Group

Providing an academic hub for the interdisciplinary study of energy policy. We place sustainability and change at the heart of debates about energy policy and governance. We work collaboratively to find new and innovative approaches for enabling the transition to a low carbon,affordable energy system.

Sustainable Circular Economy

We bring together political economists, supply chain experts, biologists, business administrators, mathematical modellers and social scientists from across the Business School to explore ideas on how we can make life on this planet more sustainable, circular and resilient.

Offshore Renewable Energy

The University of Exeter has over 20 years’ experience in offshore renewable energy, including wave analysis; marine hydrodynamics; resource modelling; moorings; testing; reliability engineering; offshore installation, monitoring, operations and maintenance.

 

 

Energy Storage

As demand for energy grows globally, energy storage technologies are of increasing importance to ensure the security and reliability of supply. This is especially true as exploitation of renewable energy sources increases. Energy storage technologies can be used as a buffer between generation and consumption.

Maths and the Environment

We bring together political economists, supply chain experts, biologists, business administrators, mathematical modellers and social scientists from across the Business School to explore, interrogate and challenge a wide variety of ideas relating to how we can make life on this planet more sustainable.

Electrical Power Systems

Our research is concerned with the development of digital control of power electronics for distributed energy sources, hybrid vehicles and machines and drives, including grid and parallel connected inverters, Microgrid, DC/DC convertors for hybrid vehicles and sensor-less drives for high-speed magnet machines.

Centre for Energy and the Environment

We are an interdisciplinary team who conduct applied research and consultancy into sustainable buildings, energy and environmental policy and the impacts of climate change on the built environment.

Solar Energy

The Solar Energy research group focuses on the development of affordable solar energy technologies and allied devices. We provide solutions to counter energy challenges that can lead us towards a sustainable future. The key subjects within the group include high efficiency solar energy conversion and storage, concentrating photovoltaics, solar fuels, 3rd generation solar cells and allied devices.

Exeter Energy, Environment and Economy (4E)

The Exeter Energy, Environment & Economy (4E) research group works in a transdisciplinary way to develop models and tools to assess the environmental, economic and social sustainability of a wide range of sociotechnical systems. The overarching aim is to help governments, industries and the public make more informed decisions with regard to sustainability.
