The University is committed to meeting the global energy challenge through both reducing the energy needs of campus and also through developing world-leading energy research.
By following the Warwick Energy Trail you will learn more about the University’s world-class multi-disciplinary research and technology to meet the global energy challenge.
The 5km trail can be joined at any point along the circuit and each of the 22 points of interest is marked with an information board. You will discover everything from energy generation to using solar panels and wind turbines, to research into effective energy storage.
A number of points on the energy trail highlight where the University is being used as a test bed for the development of new energy technologies.
Warwick has core strengths in several key areas of Energy research, including: Power Electronics; Solar Energy; Thermal Energy; and Confined Fusion for Clean Energy. With a current grant portfolio of over £20m and strong links to industry and policy makers, Warwick’s Energy-related research is a truly multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral activity. Our vision is for Warwick to be a world-leading centre of excellence in Energy research and the Energy Global Research Priority is the vehicle for making this happen.
