Our Mission

Energy Brains is a web platform put together by experts, academics and practitioners who endeavor to study energy with a multidisciplinary approach. We emphasize the need not only to identify the actors at play in energy-related matters, but to examine their influence in all academic and political spheres. The complexity of the global energy sector demands a specific and yet comprehensive investigation.

Applying this innovative methodology, Energy Brains produces high-quality, multifaceted studies useful to students and researchers in their academic endeavors, and also members of the international energy community, policy-makers, and public and private stakeholders in deepening their knowledge and understanding of this field.
