University of Aberdeen plans Energy Transition Centre

The University of Aberdeen has announced its ambition to create a new Centre for Energy Transition.

On 2 September, it explained the centre would align research and education programmes with the opportunities presented by the net zero agenda. It would focus on all areas of energy-related research and aim to support the industry in the transition to clean energy and renewables.

University of Aberdeen Principal, Professor George Boyne, said: “Our Centre for Energy Transition will seek to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead for the region in a low-carbon future, supporting the sector in making the transition through research and teaching, while nurturing start-ups and spin-outs. Our interdisciplinary approach to research means that the University is perfectly positioned as a catalyst for collaboration right across the energy supply chain, and our aim is to work with industry at all levels to support the shift to sustainable energy.”
