Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST)


PV monitoring equipment

Research activities at CREST cover a range of technical applications, including wind power, solar PV, energy in buildings, grid connection and integration, and energy storage (including hydrogen).

CREST is a member of the European Renewable Energy Centres Agency - a prestigious network of over 40 of the top renewable energy research centres. CREST regularly collaborates on projects with many of these organisations.

"CREST employs highly skilled academics, scientists and researchers who generate ideas and technologies that have much broader social and economic impact. It is playing a role in helping society to address the global challenges it faces in energy, fuel poverty and environment."
