Energy Transitions Research

The OERC creates opportunities for high-impact and internationally recognised energy-related research via an interdisciplinary network of University of Otago researchers and their external collaborators. 

Guided by a diverse steering group we organise monthly seminars and an annual energy symposium, bring in eminent speakers at the forefront of energy transition research, and actively support and encourage energy research at Otago through our research funding and network.

 See our seminar recordings on YouTube OERC Otago University.
