The Centre for Energy Policy, based in the School of Government and Public Policy within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Strathclyde works with research, government and industry partners to understand and address the pressing public policy challenge of enabling sustainable and prosperous transitions to mid-century Net Zero targets. Launched in 2015 under the leadership of the Centre Director, Professor Karen Turner, CEP has an established track record of independent, rigorous and multidisciplinary research focused on understanding the wider economy consequences of taking various decarbonisation actions in different economic contexts and timeframes. The Centre was founded with the aim of generating knowledge and evidence that can play an essential part in identifying economically, socially and politically feasible policy pathways to deliver the Net Zero transition. As part of the School of Government and Public Policy, ranked first across the UK for its research quality in politics and international studies in REF 2021 (where CEP contributed a 4* Impact Case Study), the Centre is committed to achieving real-world impacts. CEP has already helped shape UK and Scottish Government policy in areas including energy efficiency, industrial decarbonisation, heat decarbonisation and low carbon transport and has a regular regional and national media presence.
