This is an IOP special interest group, which is a community of IOP members focused on a particular discipline, application or area of interest.
Special interest groups allow members to connect and share knowledge and ideas. The IOP funds groups to deliver a range of activities including events, prizes and bursaries. All of our groups are driven by members.
About the group
As a special interest, member-driven group, we are interested in:
- the efficient use of energy
- materials for energy applications
- energy use in the built environment

- power-generation technologies: conventional, renewable, and nuclear
- security of supply
Our members include industrialists and consultants in:
- renewable sectors
- nuclear industries
