Efficient technology and clean energy are key to protect our climate. Sustainable Energy Technology includes renewable energy sources (e.g., solar energy, wind energy) and technologies designed to improve energy efficiency.

The Group has won major grants from the Innovate UK, Research Councils, EU and leading industrial companies. e.g., GeoGreenPower Ltd, Spirax-Sarco Engineering Plc) for research into a) Renewable-energy driven building services and b) Sustainable Building Services.

Innovate UK – Innovative Energy Saving and Climate Control System for Greenhouses

Sustainable Energy Technolgoies

 
 

Examples of projects include Solar Powered Thermochemical Energy Storage (EPSRC), PCM Thermal Façade for Low Carbon Buildings (EU) and High Temperature PCM/Brayton Cycle (Innovate UK). The widespread application of sustainable technologies can contribute significantly to the UK Government’s target for reducing carbon emissions by 20% by 2050.
