Providing a sustainable, secure and affordable energy supply is fundamentally important to our lives. Cranfield is advancing the potential solutions in energy and sustainability to ensure our future needs are met.

Cranfield’s expertise in energy and sustainability covers a range of the potential energy solutions, from our ongoing relationship with oil and gas, to our developing reliance on renewable energy from the world around us. The changing energy landscape presents exciting opportunities and the potential for the UK to lead in new technologies and services related to low carbon energy and power generation.

We inform the energy and sustainability industry and government because our expertise is world-renowned for both the engineering and management of energy solutions. Our research is making a difference in the sector: from increasingly efficient oil platforms to the cutting edge of renewable energy technologies.

Our postgraduate community includes around 200 MSc students from around the globe and 150 full-time doctoral students including our Renewable Energy Marine Structures (REMS) Centre for Doctoral Training with the University of Oxford. Our graduates are working in engineering and management roles across the energy industry, and putting their learning into practice.

Our expertise is supported by unique industrial scale experimental facilities across many different kinds of energy systems. These include an ocean systems laboratory, gas turbines, an anaerobic digestion plant, and high temperature coating test facilities. These make our site a wholly unique and unparalleled centre for energy research and learning.

We are making a difference and making it possible to meet the needs of our population and industry while reducing our impact on the world. Watch our film to discover more about how Cranfield is creating leaders in the fields of energy and sustainability.
