"The energy sector has changed beyond recognition in the 25 years I have been working in it. This is an exciting time of transition and innovation. 

Renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar power have become truly feasible solutions, but the race is still on to meet targets set across the world. At the same time, there is a very long way to go before we can be a totally ‘clean’ industry, so work is still required to make the most of the precious fossil resources at our disposal. 

From a chemistry, engineering or management perspective, this is a stimulating sector. Our history of innovation and excellence means that Cranfield has a crucial role in the future of energy and power."
