Speakers at the launch will include:

The Energy Building brings together under one roof the re-branded Energy Research Institute, the new Centre for Integrated Energy Research, the Energy Technology and Innovation Initiative and the Doctoral Training Centre in Low Carbon Technologies.  It will serve as a physical hub for collaboration in energy research and innovation extending beyond the campus.

The Building houses 150 staff and students from the Faculty of Engineering and provides a space for collaboration between the Schools of Engineering, Earth and Environment, the Institute for Transport Studies, and other schools.
