The ERBE CDT brings together world-leading academics from physics, engineering, the social sciences and economics to future leaders in energy research.

Leading the Energy System Transformation

We are on the brink of a new, Third Age of energy efficiency, a revolution in the way we think about the relationship between energy supply and demand. A revolution which will see the creation of a new, resilient and flexible energy system. One where energy supply and energy demand interact in real time to assure a clean, secure and affordable supply of heat and power to our homes, businesses and industry.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment will train the future innovators and leaders capable of driving this energy transformation. Students are trained through a programme of taught courses and PhD research hosted by the leading energy research groups in the UK and Ireland.

The training is led by world-leaders in their field and spans the technical, social and economic aspects of energy in the built environment, including: new and renewable energy systems; energy storage; smart controls; data analytics; socio-technical systems; people-centred design; human behaviour and energy economics.

Our work is supported by our Partners from the energy and construction industries, consultancies, central government, charities and professional institutions. They co-fund our research, support our students’ work and provide a route to impact and future employment.

Whether you’re a prospective ERBE CDT student or a potential stakeholder partner this website gives you an insight into ERBE, our projects, our people and how you can become involved in our programme.

For more information, please get in touch using the details on the contact page.


The new EPSRC-SFI CDT in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE) brings together established energy research centres at Loughborough University (LU) and University College London (UCL) with MaREI, the SFI Research Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine.

Recruitment is now open

Join the future leaders and innovators. To apply for a place for September 2021…

The ERBE CDT is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).

Catch up on series one of the #BuildingBetter podcast!

Over the past 6 months, host @cplindner has spoken to researchers from across the Bartlett to explore the world of the built environment, asking what needs to change, and how we can build better.

Yesterday we launched #TheBartlettBrief, a monthly exploration of the most radical and advanced thinking on the #BuiltEnvironment from our world-leading experts.
