The Energy Catalyst Programme is open to all energy technology from any sector. However, to be in scope for round 8 your project must address the following 3 subjects: energy access, the energy ‘trilemma’, gender and social inclusion.

MSc in Energy Systems 2019-20, University of Oxford

Students sitting in a lecture theatre

We are in the final weeks of the first year of the inaugural cohort for the MSc in Energy Systems. Thankfully the classroom teaching was not disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the University closure. Only minor changes to two of the non-taught assessments were made. We are in the process of moving into the student’s research projects that are due to be submitted at the beginning of September.

TESA The Energy Systems Accelerator

The Energy Network has been leading in promoting a multi-disciplinary approach to net zero-carbon energy systems. We have worked over the last 10 years on many major projects and with many partners, with an emphasis on multi-disciplinary working. Our influence and success is evidenced by the fact that Oxford hosts 2 of the 4 UK Government’s Large-scale Demonstrators (funded under the Industrial Strategy’s ‘Prospering from the Energy Revolution’). Both have strong University involvement.

Oxford’s Meter survey to provide insights for a net-zero carbon future

The current social distancing, to protect people from catching and spreading the corona virus, presents a perfect opportunity to capture unique data. By studying one day’s data from thousands of UK households, the research team will be able to see how we can make better use of renewables and spread the load during peak times to be more energy efficient.

MPLS Division – Director of energy research

The University of Oxford is a leader in energy research in the UK and globally. Itaims to expand energy research, in particular to address the need for decarbonisation of energy.

Clean Energy Mission Innovation Champions

The Mission Innovation Champions programme calls worldwide attention to the most promising ideas from across the globe. We seek to facilitate engagement among the awardees and our Mission Innovation governments, research institutes, affiliated organizations, and private sector investors.

Can Climate Be Reclaimed: Carbon Storage

Oxford Energy Society presents this talk by Professor Stuart Haszeldine tomorrow, Wednesday 22 January in the Becket Room, OUCE, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PY.

Absolute Zero

We can’t wait for breakthrough technologies to deliver net-zero emissions by 2050. Instead, we can plan to respond to climate change using today’s technologies with incremental change. This will reveal many opportunities for growth but requires a public discussion about future lifestyles.

Let there be (more than) light: productive energy uses

The benefits of energy services are clear. When done right, energy can have a positive transformative impact on development across multiple sectors. As a recent visualisation by UN ESCAP showed, energy infrastructure is linked to 12 of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The work of clean, affordable, and secure energy solutions research at OXGATE

The Oxford Green Ammonia TEchnology (OXGATE) research group is a collaboration between Chemistry and Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. Thegroup is led by Professor SC Edman Tsang (Chemistry) and Professor René Bañares-Alcántara (Engineering). Our work includes catalyst development, prototyping, process design, and energy systems modelling related to green hydrogen and ammonia.
