Transforming the future of energy, through integrated innovation.

Enhanced understanding and new and improved tools and techniques are needed to enable and accelerate transition to low carbon, secure, economically viable and socially equitable energy systems. The Centre for Integrated Energy Research (CIER) aims to deliver this enhanced understanding and these tools and techniques through world-class research integrating technological, economic, policy, and socio-technical dimensions of energy (see our capabilities for further information).

The Centre draws together expertise of around 40 leading researchers, from across the engineering, design, social and behavioural sciences. Researchers at the University of Leeds are always welcome to join and contribute to this vibrant community.
