Sustainable Energy

Wind farm at sea

At the Copernicus Institute, we work from the understanding that the energy transition is at its core a technical transition at the system level, but that implementation also requires understanding of environmental, techno-economic and other societal factors.

The defining strength our energy research is that collectively our expertise gives full coverage of the energy system, old and new, production and use. Our academic interest is driven by the desire of the researcher to help society address the energy challenge. As a consequence, our research profile is always adapting to tackle the most critical issues and knowledge gaps in the energy domain, and increasingly incorporating social sciences into our program.
