Green Great Britain
Durham University research is helping us to understand the damaging impacts of climate change and what options we have to limit the impacts.
The UK's geothermal resources are significant and could supply heat to the UK for over a century. Durham University leads research into the potential for geothermal energy in the UK and beyond.
Durham is leading on innovations to make our energy system flexible enough and safe enough so that future households can begin to trade the energy they generate with each other as well as to the national grid.
Durham University research is helping to ensure that the right investment decisions are made in offshore energy infrastructure.
Durham University is supporting the UK Offshore Wind Industry to become a global leader. Our long-term partnership with Ørsted, the leading offshore wind developer in the world, is helping to keep the UK at the forefront of the global industry.
Durham Energy Institute works with communities to support local energy projects and inform local discussions on energy issues such as fracking and heat networks, and with local authorities and regional bodies on regional energy projects.
