Welcome to Sustainability, Energy and Environment
Explore our range of research.
Durham Energy Institute (DEI)
Decarbonising energy is one of the most pressing challenges facing the world today, reducing greenhouse emissions and addressing climate change.
Colonialism, Neo-colonialism and Ecology
Global discourses on the distributed responsibility of the current climate crisis often ignore the colonial histories of exploitation that continue.
Molecular Plant Sciences
Our research looks at responses to environmental stresses, developmental biology, genetic and epigenetic control of gene expression and cell biology.
Ecology, Evolution and Environment
Relationships between organisms and their changing environment, from global to sub-cellular, considering behavioural and evolutionary plasticity.
InSPIRE Air Quality and Brain Health Consortium
Our vision is for everyone in the UK to be able to breathe clean air that promotes a healthy brain and cognitive life.
Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience
Our research encompasses a range of academic disciplines, including the physical and social sciences and the arts and humanities.
Centre for Culture and Ecology
We are interested in thinking ecology as constitutively implicated in struggles around class, gender, race, sexuality and pressing ecological issues.
Centre for Environmental and Energy Economics
We work on a wide range of prominent environmental and energy problems. Many of these issues are associated with failure or absence of proper markets.
