World Leading Research

Solving clean energy and carbon utilisation requires bright minds and big ideas. We’ve got both. The Humber is home to some of the world’s leading professors in energy and environment and they’re already hard at work developing game changing innovation.

World Leading Research

Invented in the Humber.
Impact across the world.

Led by Professor Dan Parsons, the
University of Hull’s Energy
and Environment Institute
brings together world class researchers to tackle global challenges related to climate change and their consequences for society and livelihoods

The Institute hosts the £5.5m EPSRC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training, supporting over 75 PhD students in offshore wind energy and the environment.

World Leading Research

Professor Zhao, one of the world’s most highly-cited energy researchers, is a globally-recognised energy researcher in the fields of sustainable building services, renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.

Over a 30-year career, he has led or participated in 54 research projects worth £14m, 40 engineering consultancy projects worth £5m and claimed five patents.

World Leading Research

75% of the University of Hull’s research in geography, environment and earth science, chemistry and engineering is rated as ‘world leading’ or “internationally excellent”. Research impact for geography and environmental studies ranks third in the UK.

Overall, the University of Hull has secured £24m in competitive research funding on low carbon and environmental resilience over the last three years.
