Our ambition for energy systems research is to optimise the process of generating, distributing and utilising energy. Current research priorities are focused on ways that we can move towards a more sustainable and resilient system for key areas including transportation, manufacturing and grid storage. This requires major improvements in three key research areas:

Our work spans capabilities including Advanced Propulsion Systems and Intelligent Mobility, working with partners to provide applied research and skills development in related areas.

Current Projects

We are engaged in many projects with partners across a range of sectors and stages of system development:

Many of our Energy Systems facilities are co-ordinated as part of our Energy Innovation Centre.

More information on individual equipment and capability is available from our directory:


Working in partnership with Technical Experts from Jjaguar Land Rover, the Energy Systems team have develpoed a range of modules as part of the Technical Accreditation Scheme (TAS). The Masters-level modules deliver high impact, relevant, specialised, state-of-the-art solutions in the fields of future vehicle technologies and virtual engineering. More information>>
