Welcome to Energy@Cambridge
Welcome to the web site of the Energy@Cambridge strategic research initiative. Energy@Cambridge brings together the activities of over 250 academics working in energy related research across different academic Schools, Departments and disciplines. With a funding portfolio of over £100 million, the initiative builds on the breadth of research in Cambridge and core competence and capabilities in science, technology, economics and social sciences, crossing formal departmental and discipline boundaries from technology, physical and life sciences to the humanities, social sciences, business and management. Our aim is to use this expertise to tackle grand technical and intellectual challenges in energy.
