Durham University


Student Energy Durham is the energy society at Durham University (UK), working alongside the Durham Energy Institute to provide students with a diverse range of talks and workshops on the world of energy. The UK’s energy environment is unstable and, following the recent ‘Brexit’ vote, uncertain. As students, we will be deeply impacted by vital decisions regarding the nation’s energy future. The society aims to educate and inspire students to develop their interest and understanding of this ever-increasingly important sector.



Student Energy Durham has successfully grown as a society on the Durham University campus after gaining accreditation with the Durham Students’ Union (DSU) in early December 2015. The society received a start-up grant and has succeeded in developing a good online following on our Facebook page 'Student Energy Durham’ - come check us out!

A good integration with the Durham Energy Institute (DEI), the university’s energy research group, has helped to develop exceptional links and provide good connections for future events to be held in the 2016/17 academic year and beyond. The DEI has also helped put on events alongside the society including a workshop with DONG Energy, Europe’s leading wind farm operator. The DEI will provide further aid to the society as it benefits from an improved outlet to students at the university.
