Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering

Research

Energy engineering research

Energy engineering is a core strength of Wolfson School, with a very broad reach from energy generation, storage, transmission, utilisation and energy systems management through to energy delivery and utilisation in power train activities.

We host a number of world leading groups in powertrain technologies, specifically combustion, transmission systems and analysis and are host to the internationally leading Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology.

Activities we address include but are not limited to:

  • Renewable energy technologies
  • SMART grids
  • Pulsed power and applications
  • Energy storage
  • Powertrain engineering
  • Combustion
  • Turbo-machinery
  • Energy efficiency
