About us

The Supergen Bioenergy Hub works across academia, industry, government and societal stakeholders to develop sustainable bioenergy systems that support the UK’s transition to an affordable, resilient, low-carbon energy future.

The hub is funded jointly by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and is part of the wider Supergen Programme.

The hub is based at Aston University under the direction of Professor Patricia Thornley, and management is undertaken by the Core Management Group (CMG), comprising representatives from each of the core academic institutions, along with the Chair of the Advisory Board and a representative from the Chairs of the SHARE network.

The latest phase of the Supergen Bioenergy Hub launched in November 2018 and will run until October 2022.

The Hub’s work programme covers the full chain of bioenergy – find out more in the Projects section.
