Our mission is to study this phenomenon and help facilitate the design and diffusion of sustainable energy technologies, facilitate knowledge transfer and help create the economic and managerial expertise necessary to make the global energy infrastructure environmentally sustainable.
While the transition itself poses huge technological and economic challenges, it also provides for major business opportunities. Through our research we seek to understand where such opportunities emerge, and what new business models are needed to pursue them.
The EBR Laboratory brings together academics in economics, management and social science to explore all stages of the lifecycle of sustainable energy innovation and adoption- from strategic planning through infrastructure development and deployment to consumers’ adoption behaviours. The EBR Laboratory collaborates closely with Imperial’s world-leading experts in energy technologies, leading industrial partners and with policy-makers to inform both managerial and policy practice.
