Our research

The Energy Centre is research-led. The Centre's research programme is focused on three broad areas: energy markets, resource and environment markets, and transport economics.

Research priorities are set by the Centre and are based on conversations with partner companies, the energy sector more generally, transport agencies and government agencies. The Centre has important cross-disciplinary linkages with the School of Engineering, Engineering Science and the Transport Research Centre.

The research-policy nexus is an essential attribute of Centre activities. Meetings and seminars provide a vehicle for business and government agencies to engage with the Centre's programme. Stakeholder participation ensures policy relevance. Reports, media releases and submissions to government on proposed policy are underpinned by research.

The Centre is currently engaged in the following projects:
