John Scrimgeour, the AIE Executive Director said:

“All Energy is a great opportunity for the University to showcase its breadth of energy research and teaching capabilities to industry.

“We are keen to engage with organisations and will be looking to discuss a range of ways that they can get involved with us – research collaborations, degree programme support, graduate employment etc.

“Individuals looking to learn about CPD or Masters level study opportunities should come along and find out about our wide range of Energy related courses and programmes.”

Around 8,000 visitors from nearly 50 countries will flock to the event and Professor Paul Mitchell added:

“We have a wider portfolio of topics related to renewable energy than any other university.

“Particular strengths are in biomass and bioenergy – from sustainable land use to catalytic processes for the production of transportation fuels. We are at the leading edge of research in fuel cells and hydrogen technologies for a range of applications, including marine energy.

“We have a strong focus too on environmental science, much of which is centred on environmental impact of the energy industries, the impact of global climate change on soils and ecosystems and options for mitigation.”
