Since its start in 1999, LOE has grown to over 100 members distributed over multiple groups, each with their own particular areas of focus. However, the groups collaborate continuously to create internal cross-disciplinary projects. In this way, LOE is still run as "one big group".
Results are regularly published in leading high-impact journals (see publications below and at the individual research group pages).
Major funding for LOE's research is provided by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Swedish Research Council, the Swedish Energy Agency, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, Vinnova, the AFM Government Strategic Research Area, and the European Commission.
