The Energy Policy Group at the University of Exeter provides an academic hub for the interdisciplinary study of energy policy and sustainability, specialising in the transition from the current unsustainable energy systems to sustainable ones providing clean energy for all.
Research carried out by the group is interdisciplinary and collaborative, both within the University and with outside organisations. We provide objective research, analysis and policy advice to policy makers, industry, NGOs, and the public. The research work of the group is funded by grants from UK research councils and also through consultancy with national and international stakeholders.
In addition to research, the group contribute to the MSc Sustainable Development, MSc Sustainable Development (Climate Change and Risk Management), MRes Environment, Energy and Resilience, and the undergraduate degree programmes at the University. There are also a number of PhD researchers and post doctoral researchers contributing to the group.
We produce policy proposals, research reports, responses to government consultations on energy and climate change, consultancy reports, conference and journal papers, presentations to a wide variety of audiences, and contributions to the wider debate in the general media (press, TV, radio and internet).
