Durham researchers part of new £20m EPSRC National Centre for Energy Systems Integration
A new centre, involving researchers at Durham University, that will allow experts to test the entire energy system in real time has been announced today.
Bridging a pivotal gap in our drive towards a fully integrated, smart energy network, the centre is crucial to improving energy efficiency, driving down customer bills and reducing carbon emissions.
Department of Earth Sciences gains an Athena SWAN Bronze Award
Durham University’s Department of Earth Sciences has gained an Athena SWAN Bronze Award from the Equality Challenge Unit. The Athena SWAN Charter (http://www.ecu.ac.uk/equality-charters/athena-swan/) recognises work undertaken to address gender equality as well as actions to remove barriers to progression that affect women who are academic, research, professional or support staff, and students in Higher Education. The Department’s application was compiled by a Self Assessment Team, led by Dr. Jonny Imber, and will remain valid until April 2019 when it can be renewed or superseded by a higher level award from the Athena SWAN scheme.
