The University of Nottingham is a leading international centre for energy research, with a reputation for excellence across a broad range of technologies encompassing bioenergy, fossil energy, energy storage, the built environment and electrical grids with a current grant portfolio in excess of £40M. 

The research is stimulating innovation, resulting in licensing and spin-off activity through collaborations with industry, developing national and global enterprise networks. As part of the strategy to further grow our internationally leading research programme, the University is investing £7M funding in new energy technologies and bioenergy buildings. 

Nottingham is one of three universities (with Birmingham and Loughborough) comprising the Midlands Energy Consortium (MEC) which hosts the Energy Technologies Institute and where we have established the Midlands Energy Graduate School to provide a unique shared platform to improve the quality of Postgraduate Research (PGR) training in energy research.
