Our researchers are examining the following areas:
Sustainable Energy Solutions
Exploring how energy storage, particularly thermal and cryogenic energy-based technologies, coupled with appropriate policy, could play an important role in delivering an integrated energy system.
Tackling fundamental nuclear industry challenges and making significant investments in the areas of Nuclear Engineering, Waste Management and Decommissioning.
Strategic Elements and Critical Materials
Addressing the challenges posed by supply constraints on strategic and critical elements. We are working on the development of new recycling processes to enable the recovery of critical materials from end of life products, mining wastes and even road dust.
Exploring the technology and the societal, business and financial models needed to deliver sustainable cooling for all.
Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Research
Driving both the technology and thinking required to solve some of the challenges facing the UK, as it seeks to develop sustainable solutions to the designing of future cities, energy and transportation.
