About us

The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) carries out world-class research into sustainable future energy systems. UKERC acts a focal point for UK energy research and a gateway between the UK and the international energy research communities. Our interdisciplinary, whole systems research informs UK policy development and strategies of public, private and third sector organisations.

UKERC is funded by The Research Councils UK Energy Programme.

UKERC reports to a Funders Group convened by the Research Councils, and is advised by an independent Advisory Board. Find out more about UKERC Governance.
