Energy Epidemiology Research Centre – studying energy demand from transport and the built environment, developing a new path for energy demand research
UCL Energy Institute has been awarded one of six Centres of Excellence in End-Use Energy Demand by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
The Research Councils UK (RCUK) Centre for Energy Epidemiology (CEE) will focus on providing an evidence base for government and industry to support end use energy reduction across buildings and transport, helping to deliver the UK's commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% of 1990 levels by 2050.
The UCL Energy Institute invites applications for a fully funded 4-year PhD studentship covering UK/EU fees plus stipend to focus on the use of network and graph based methods, informed by big data, to improve energy efficiency. Analysis is to cross multiple disciplines from transport, considering how to optimise public transport networks, to electricity transmission focusing on grid optimisation to reduce CO2 emissions.
