Low carbon energy and the environment

Smart energy for a more sustainable future

Wind Turbines off Redcar

The Tees Valley has one of the largest clusters of biomass, biofuel, bioethanol and energy from waste plants allowing us to collaborate closely with industry partners, pioneering research in the development of low carbon energy and resources technologies.

Our internationally excellent research in decarbonisation projects, emerging technologies and market innovation provides the knowledge and skills you need to develop new technology and accelerate the transition from concept to commercially available products.

Our expertise:

  • Carbon Capture and Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) to achieve cost effective decarbonisation and reduce industrial and domestic CO2 emissions.
  • Hydrogen economy development - we're leading the way in hydrogen-related research and provide resources and expertise to support innovative solutions.
  • Planning and management tools to reduce waste and improve efficiency in the construction industry.
  • Energy demand response for buildings and the development of integrated smart grid technologies.
  • Clean alternatives to fossil fuels.
  • Renewable and sustainable chemicals and materials.
  • Biofeedstocks and biofuels.
  • Biomass power
  • Measurement and control systems to improve efficiency and reduce emissions from power stations.
  • Energy from waste/waste to resource solutions to provide energy to the electricity grid.
  • Sustainable manufacturing to improve resource efficiencies.

The partnership we have formed with TWI in the creation of two new industrially-focussed sustainable innovation centres will help companies to reduce the impact their operations have on the environment. The Industrial Decarbonisation and Hydrogen Innovation Centre will focus on the development of cost effective, low-carbon technologies to support industry's drive for clean energy growth. Where by the Circular Economy and Recycling Innovation Centre will address the advancement of new disruptive technologies designed to help reduce industry's reliance on finite resources and eliminate waste.

The new Innovation Centres build on more than 20 years of research in environmental and sustainable engineering technologies at the University and TWI.

Island communities set to benefit from University energy expertise

Energy experts at Teesside University are involved in an ambitious international research project which has the potential to make significant savings to the cost of energy consumption across islands in Europe.

Teesside University is one of the partners in the 10 million euros REACT project, which was officially launched in Barcelona last week. It is being coordinated by Veolia Serveis Catalunya in Spain, a global leader in water, waste and energy management solutions which contributes to the sustainable development of communities and industries.
