Imperial - Energy Manager










ABOUT IMPERIAL COLLEGE LONDON Imperial College London is one of the world’s greatest universities, renowned for its ground-breaking research, talented community of staff, students and alumni and its international reach. With a mission to achieve enduring excellence in research and education in science, engineering, medicine and business for the benefit of society, Imperial was founded in 1907 in South Kensington, bringing together nineteenth-century institutions including the Royal College of Science, the Royal School of Mines and City and Guilds College. Today, Imperial collaborates extensively with neighbouring institutions, including the Royal College of Art and the Royal College of Music.




From its location in this great cultural quarter, Imperial provides one of the world’s best educations in STEM subjects for a student population approaching 22,000, made up of 11,000 undergraduate and 11,000 postgraduate, over half of whom come from overseas, reflecting its status as the UK’s most international university. Its alumni and members also include 14 Nobel laureates and three Fields Medalists. Throughout its history, Imperial has been involved in many major breakthroughs, including the discovery of penicillin and the creation of the hologram. This tradition has continued with recent innovations such as wirelessly transferring power to drones in flight, the discovery of a new form of light and major new research in climate change, amongst much else. Imperial has four academic faculties – Engineering, Medicine and Natural Sciences, and the Imperial College Business School – as well as a significant number of interdisciplinary research centres focusing on challenging world problems. Imperial’s mission is supported by 9,000 highly diverse staff, who collaborate widely in the UK and internationally, often across disciplines.

In 2021-2022, Imperial had a total turnover of £1,163 million, of which £368 million directly supported research through grants and contracts. Imperial’s current Strategy Refresh will build on underpinning foundations that make Imperial a great academic institution and the talented, diverse and inspirational people who help make up our university community. Imperial’s success is recognised all over the world and is evidenced by daily coverage of Imperial discoveries and innovations in the international media. Imperial is a global top ten university. It was ranked 6th in the QS World University Rankings 2023, was named University of the Year by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, this year’s University of the Year for Student Experience by the Good University Guide, and recently received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for its COVID-19 response. The Research Excellence Framework 2021 confirmed Imperial’s status as a world-class research university. Imperial ranked top in the UK overall – with a greater proportion of 4* “world-leading” research than any other UK university.

“Imperial London’s mission is to achieve enduring excellence in research and education in science, engineering, medicine and business for the benefit of society.”

OUR STRATEGY REFRESH Shaping our vision and ambition for Imperial in 10-20 years time. Imperial College London is a world-changing global powerhouse that is truly distinctive. We have tremendous strength and focus on business, engineering, medicine and science. We are known for innovation, entrepreneurship, impact and societal benefit; and we are based in London, one of the greatest cities in the world.

Imperial’s staff, students and alumni are making the world healthier, smarter, safer, more prosperous and more sustainable. But, in a rapidly changing world, what is our ambition for the next two decades? If we are to maximise our potential as a force for good in the world, serve as a powerful catalyst for the UK’s future success; and continue to compete successfully in the top tier globally, we simply cannot stand still.

To be launched in early 2023, Imperial’s new strategy will set our vision and ambition for the next two decades. It will guide our major decisions and position us to grasp new opportunities. And it will inspire others to join us, partner with us and invest in us.

‘It is precisely because of the recent tectonic shifts in our world that it is an opportune time to take a fresh look at Imperial’s strategy’ President Hugh Brady


While Imperial’s main campus is located in South Kensington, it has six other locations in London based at Charing Cross, Chelsea & Westminster, Hammersmith, Northwick Park, the Royal Brompton, St Mary’s Hospital as well as cutting-edge research facilities at our White City Campus. Imperial also has the Silwood Park Campus near Ascot, focusing on ecology, evolution and conservation.

South Kensington

White City Our White City Campus is a platform for innovation, entrepreneurship and multi- disciplinary research. We are pioneering new ways of partnering and co-location through an entrepreneurial ecosystem with support, resources and facilities that span ideation, growth and acceleration. White City is establishing itself as a pioneering quarter for arts, culture, innovation, science and learning. It is one of the fastest growing parts of London, home to institutions including the revamped BBC Media Village, Westfield Shopping Centre, the Royal College of Art and Hammersmith Hospital. At the centre of this transformation sits Imperial College London and our investment in the White City Campus. We are building a community of like-minded innovators and entrepreneurs, working to make the world better. Together, we are creating a place where great ideas can grow.

South Kensington is our main campus and it is here that most undergraduate and postgraduate activity takes place. It’s a compact site in the heart of ‘Albertopolis’ and is home to a huge range of architectural styles from the Edwardian Royal School of Mines building to the ultra-modern Norman Foster-designed Business School. There’s plenty of green space too, including a beautiful landscaped square, with our famous Queen’s Tower at one end. The history behind the monument can be viewed at Queen’s Tower.

The campus is a network of different organisations and partners, fuelled by the power of proximity. Here, ideas flow freely and theories are rapidly applied in practice. We’ve done a lot already. We have built a 23-acre site complete with research facilities, offices, laboratories, cafés, accommodation, startup incubators, and spaces where companies can grow and scale up. We’ve run programmes with and for the local community, teaching new skills and building new ventures.

The campus today is just the start of fulfilling our vision: to be the place where great ideas grow.

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION As a leading institution in the heart of London, Imperial College proudly upholds a longstanding commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. Valuing the diversity of our community is one of the four cornerstones of our recent strategy and we further inclusion and equality through numerous formal and informal practices across our institution.

Why embracing equality, diversity and inclusion matters: In order to ask the right questions and come up with the useful answers we need to harness the best minds across the broadest perspectives. Our community therefore needs to be diverse, inclusive and based on equality. Embracing equality, diversity and inclusion is not simply a matter of complying with the law, though clearly we are bound by its provisions. Nor is it simply a matter of social justice, though as a public institution it is absolutely right that we should strive to be representative of the society we serve. Nor is it an alternative to traditional notions of excellence. Rather, our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion recognises the fact that excellence comes in many forms. If Imperial is to thrive in a world that has never been

Our aim is to embed equality, diversity, and inclusion into all of our work at Imperial. We take pride in our declared mission “to achieve enduring excellence in research and education in science, engineering, medicine and business for the benefit of society.” This reflects our civic role as a repository for knowledge and culture, as an institution that fosters independent and critical reflection, and as an agent of positive societal change. As a university, we are defined by our community of staff and students. Therefore, we will only succeed in our mission by cultivating an environment that respects, supports and celebrates all the people who come to Imperial, enabling them to enrich the world and their own lives through work and study.
