Planet Earth’s greatest challenge: how can we meet the world’s rising demand for energy whilst protecting it from the effects of climate change?

Discover how we’re tackling this challenge and explore the journey energy takes on its way to the plug sockets in our homes. Where does it come from? Can we store it safely for a rainy day? How can we stop this precious resource being wasted?

Learn how engineers and scientists at The University of Manchester are pioneering the energy systems of the future, from low carbon generation through to efficient supply, innovative storage solutions and more sustainable consumption.

Our Manchester Energy stand has interactive activities for all ages. Find out how we can keep the lights glowing whilst saving our pale blue dot, Earth.
