Energy Infrastructure

Energy InfrastructureEnergy Infrastructure is one of the research themes under which Energy Futures Lab organises its activity and the energy research being done at the College.

There is a lot of work being done at Imperial to strengthen the energy infrastructure and rethink how organisations and people use energy. This research is centred on multi-physics, multi-scale modelling of energy systems and energy systems integration. It is also includes research on integrating technologies such as smart grids, energy storage and cross-vector conversion.

Topics include:

  • Whole-system models
  • Smart grids
  • Energy system integration
  • Energy storage
  • Energy efficiency

Energy Futures Lab works with a wide range of research groups at the College who are working on numerous projects in the area.

The institute's work is supported by our Energy Infrastructure Research Theme Lead and Champions.
