Industry Collaborators

A dynamic collaboration between UCD Energy Institute and Industry has proven to be mutually
beneficial in terms of skills development, the generation, acquisition, and adoption of knowledge
and the promotion of innovation and entrepreneurship. It is built on a shared belief that academia
and enterprise can work in tandem to implement the best approaches to achieving a decarbonized
future of the energy system.

Academic Collaborators

Memoranda of Understanding (or Co-operation) has been established to capitalize on opportunities
for collaboration and academic engagement to mutual benefit. UCD Energy Institute is pleased to
collaborate with:

Energy Systems Research Unit of Strathclyde University who share a common belief that options for energy demand reduction and clean supply must be considered together if society is to attain significant levels of energy efficiency and new & renewable energy systems deployment.

Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN), Southeast Asia, who is equally committed to cutting-edge research and innovating for a sustainable future and in doing so is striving to be a leading global energy university by 2025



International Membership

GEIDCO is an international organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development of energy around the world and the establishment of the Global Energy Interconnection (GEI) system, so as to meet the global demand for electricity in a clean and green way and to facilitate the implementation of United Nations “Sustainable Energy for All” initiative.

The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) is an alliance of European public research centres and universities and is one of the cornerstones of the European Integrated Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan).  EERA Joint Programme in Energy Systems Integration looks to develop the technical and economical tool box that governments and industries will need to build the Europe of Energy through the optimization of electrical, thermal and fuel pathways at all scales.   

The European Construction, built environment and energy efficient building Technology Platform (ECTP) was set up to promote and influence the future of the Built Environment to work collectively to improve our position on many societal and industrial issues including energy, climate change, efficiency and infrastructure.

The IEA examines the full spectrum of energy issues, providing authoritative statistics and analysis, and advocates policies that will enhance the reliability, affordability and sustainability of energy. Ireland is signatory to 8 Technology Collaboration Programmes (TCPs) to which UCD Energy Institute participate in many of the ongoing activities of TCPs.
