"Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it for jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes, access to energy for all is essential. Transitioning the global economy towards clean and sustainable sources of energy is one of our greatest challenges in the coming decades. Sustainable energy is an opportunity – it transforms lives, economies and the planet." - United Nations
The Centre for Energy Transition (CET) is a dynamic research centre that brings the power of interdisciplinary research to bear on the climate crisis. The Centre builds upon decades of energy-related research, education and partnerships from across academia, industry, government and society to support the collective effort needed to bring about the transition to a low carbon energy system.
As the central hub for energy-related research and education at Aberdeen, the CET facilitates engagement and collaboration between the University's research community and our external partners. We are particularly interested in collaborating with industry, governments, researchers, and other organisations and groups working to deliver on net-zero and other important energy-related challenges.
In addition, the CET responsible for leading University’s energy-related education, training and skills programmes, to support the transition to a green economy.
