Population growth, economic development and mobility, urbanisation and the digital revolution are all increasing the demand for energy. At the same time, resource constraints and environmental factors are impacting energy security, economics and public policy. Our research is targeting these new challenges and developing novel opportunities in the energy market.
Arup is committed to finding solutions to decarbonise our energy system. In collaboration with the University of Cambridge and ETH Zurich, Arup is researching a linear optimisation approach to energy masterplanning – to develop low-carbon energy systems for developments and cities. Through the Hy4Heat heating innovation programme, our energy consultants are researching the use of hydrogen as a sustainable fuel to heat our homes.
How we generate, distribute and consume energy is becoming more complex as the world population grows. Our research programme is varied to help tackle the big challenges facing our clients, from distributed energy storage solutions to the management of offshore assets.
