UK Energy Research Centre

The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) carries out world-class research into sustainable future energy systems. It is the hub of UK energy research and the gateway between the UK and the international energy research communities. Our interdisciplinary, whole systems research informs UK policy development and research strategy. UKERC is funded by Research Councils UK Energy Programme.

The Centre was established in 2004, following a recommendation from the 2002 Energy Review initiated by Sir David King, the UK Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor. UKERC participates and leads energy research activities internationally as part of its mission to act as a bridge between the UK energy research community and the wider world.
