Energy & Low Carbon

Expertise & specialist facilities

Loughborough University’s energy and low carbon capabilities reflect challenges throughout the cycle from new technology development to real world system performance and end use energy demand – set in a sustainable and clean low carbon context. Expertise domains combine engineering and physical sciences, detailed computer-based simulation capability, economic, policy and socio-technical research.


Smart green energy

Since 2017, Loughborough University has worked with the UK PV industry standards body, MCS certified as well as the leading solar trade association, Solar Energy UK, and their members to apply its modelling and simulation research to support the development of new PV standards, consumer codes, industry services and policy recommendations.


Closing the loop

Loughborough University’s collaboration with Plastic Energy is safely recycling plastics to create a range of useful materials. Plastic Energy’s Plastic2Plastic process reduces the environmental impact of plastic production and end-of-life processing. Widespread adoption will reduce our carbon footprint and help to curb pollution.
