Work With Us

Energy 2050 is an opportunity for businesses to work with an industry leading energy initiative. We offer innovative energy solutions for any commercial requirement. Ranging stand-alone systems through to a combination of technologies, our experience and expertise ensures the right intervention at the right time.

Energy 2050 is dedicated to turning innovation into working solutions. Our work is grounded upon academic excellence across the energy research spectrum and also utilises the unique facilities that exist at the university.  These include our Sheffield Solar Farm which can test new types of solar PV technologies; access to the national Carbon Capture and Storage test facilities (PACT); and the world leading Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).

We are able to support businesses with technology interventions that can:

  • Accelerate deployment of prototypes and first of a kind products and systems
  • Improve the efficiency of energy systems and processes
  • De-risk investment in innovative energy technologies.

Technology Development

If you have identified a longer term opportunity as part of your strategic technology development plan, but do not have the appropriate in-house resource, we can establish a doctoral (PhD, EngDoc) or post-doctoral project to suit your requirement.


When you have a specific short-term problem to be resolved Energy 2050 can provide you with contract-based expert support, whether that is in the form of a specific individual or a team drawn from across the university’s faculties and departments.
