The Energy Systems Integration Laboratory

The Energy Systems Integration Laboratory is part of the Birmingham Centre for Rail Research and Education. The centre comprises of a multidisciplinary team from across the University of Birmingham to tackle fundamental railway engineering problems.

The facility is part of the Energy Efficiency and Demand Reduction work package, part of the Birmingham Science City initiative. This project involves a £9.5m capital investment in research relating to the development and demonstration of energy efficient technologies.

The project comprises 10 work streams spanning the Universities for Warwick and Birmingham. The investment offers much potential for collaboration between the work streams and other complementary R&D activities across the Universities. The potential for collaboration with business and other stakeholders is also significant - at regional, national and international scales.

The team actively engages with industry and other universities through Rail Research UK, and international partners and also delivers the MSc postgraduate programme in Railway Systems Engineering and Integration.
