SERG builds on over 25 years of sustainable energy research within the School of Engineering in UCC. The principal research areas are Bioenergy Research, Energy Policy and Modelling, Wind Energy, Energy Efficiency.  SERG's research has been widely published in peer reviewed journals, conference proceedings and project reports. The expertise within the Group is recognised at national level and SERG staff continue to be called on to provide key input to a number of energy policy initiatives such as the Climate Change and Energy Security Technical Analysis Steering Group, the Ministerial Renewable Energy Strategy Group, and the Technology Foresight Energy Panel.


External Strategic advice to Sustainable Energy Ireland was provided in establishing its Renewable Energy Information Office and is currently being provided to its Energy Policy Statistical Support Unit and Energy Modelling Group. SERG members also represent Ireland on International Energy Agency Implementing Agreement Committees for biofuels and energy systems modelling and EU DGTREN’s Energy Economic Analysts Group.
