It is the principal and international institution of education in, and for the global energy and resources economy with staff from all over the world.
At CEPMLP we have a well-established, innovative, and rigorous PhD programme.

Reflecting the major concerns of our times, there is also growing research interest in the law and policy of renewable energy and climate change issues.
