Energy Resilience and the Built Environment PGR conference
18 May 2023
09:00 - 17:00
University College London (UCL) London

We are pleased to announce that the Call for Abstracts is now open for the 10th annual ERBE Student-Led Conference taking place in London, UK, on the 18th May 2023. This year, the conference will be hosted by UCL and will be held in a hybrid format (online option available). The theme is Energy Resilience and the Built Environment as an acknowledgement of the diverse research present in this area.


The EPSRC-SFI CDT in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE) is a Centre for Doctoral Training established between energy research centres at Loughborough University (LU) and University College London (UCL) with MaREI, the SFI Research Centre for Energy, Climate and Marine. The ERBE CDT brings together world-leading academics with multi-disciplinary expertise in physics, engineering, the social sciences and economics with an overarching vision to develop a resilient energy system for the built environment, with projects providing a deeper understanding of buildings, low and zero-carbon technologies and the socio-technical context within energy research.


In line with the overarching ERBE themes, we are currently calling for abstracts (250 words) in the following areas:

§  Comfort, Health and Well-being

§  Technology and System Performance

§  Flexibility and Resilience


The conference is open to all PhD students and early career researchers within energy research as pertaining to the built environment. There is a preference for in-person presentations, but online presentations will also be considered. If you feel your line of research aligns with any particular theme and you wish to present at the conference, please register and submit your abstracts via the form linked here.


The deadline for abstract submission is Friday, 10th March 2023.


We also welcome PhD students and early career researchers who do not wish to present but have a keen interest in energy research and would like to attend the conference.


This is a great opportunity to showcase your research and discuss current research interests and topics amongst your peers within a highly collaborative environment. Next to presentations, there will be a keynote speaker (TBC), poster sessions, workshops and a range of networking opportunities on the day. Please share this information with others who might want to attend or submit an abstract for the conference.


Further details and the conference programme will be distributed closer to the date. Should you have any queries, please don't hesitate to forward them to Laurel at


We look forward to receiving your submissions and welcoming all prospective participants.
