What We Do

ERICA is a council of university energy research institutes which collectively aim to provide:


  • National capacity across a broad spectrum of cutting-edge energy research, in both specialised and inter-disciplinary fields;

  • High-level, evidence-based, energy policy advice to government;


  • An over-the-horizon perspective on future energy opportunities and challenges that can only be informed by cutting-edge research;


  • research touch point for industry and government on energy issues of national and international significance; and


  • research-led education network for students and young researchers.
