The Energy Change Institute provides authoritative leadership in energy research, education and public policy. We have a broad portfolio ranging from the science and engineering of energy generation and energy efficiency, to energy economics, regulation, security, sociology and policy.
The ECI comprises more than 300 staff and PhD students from all seven Colleges of the University, and over $100 million in infrastructure and facilities, supported by a major portfolio of external grant funding.
Our defining feature is that we are both technology and policy neutral.
