Our institute has nationally recognised centres of excellence across a range of energy research, including energy storage; nuclear energy; strategic elements and critical materials; fuel cells and their applications; and energy policy and economics.
The BEI also includes nationally-leading research capabilities in clean cold, smart grids and integration, bioenergy, wind energy and energy materials.
Through our collaborative partnerships we are able to share ideas and expertise to overcome existing challenges, upscale innovative technology solutions and maximise on the opportunities created by the global energy market.
Locally, we are working with Tyseley Energy Park to transform clean energy innovation in Birmingham and the West Midlands region. Applying our research and working with industry to deliver low and zero carbon power, transport, heat and waste for a greener, cleaner, healthier Birmingham.
As a part of the Energy Research Accelerator (ERA), the BEI is working alongside seven other universities to undertake innovative research, develop the next generation of energy leaders and demonstrate low carbon technologies that will help shape the future of the UK’s energy landscape.
