The UCL Energy and Development Group

The UCL Energy and Development Group aims to connect research and public engagement activities across the University concerning the production, conversion, delivery, and use of energy to achieve the Goals and Targets recognised in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In particular, our research focuses on Low and Middle Income Countries. Formed in 2015, the Group is comprised of academics and researchers from across UCL, including UCL Energy Institute, Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE), the Institute for Sustainable Resources (ISR), Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP), the Development Planning Unit (DPU), Electronic and Electrical Engineering, the Centre for Law and Environment, as well as UCL Consultants (UCLC).

The Group’s activities focus on informing and empowering efforts to deliver Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7, which calls for action to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. Our work recognises the holistic and indivisible character of the SDGs, and emphasises interdisciplinary research designed to clarify synergies and trade-offs between efforts to achieve SDG7, and the delivery of all 169 Targets recognised in the 2030 Agenda. Our work is organised thematically into three broad domains:

How do decisions about energy systems affect humanity's ability to:

· realise individual and collective aspirations of greater welfare and well-being;
· build physical and social infrastructures for sustainable development; 
· achieve sustainable management of the environment and natural resources?

Our work is motivated by the urgent need to better organise, connect and extend bodies of evidence relating to these themes, in a manner that helps all actors work together to achieve sustainable development. We strive to work in partnership with a broad and diverse range of actors across the public, private and third sectors, in countries, regions, and communities at varied stages of their journey towards realising the vision recognised in the 2030 Agenda. Capacity building is also an important component of our work.
