Future Energy Systems

A research group of the Department of Engineering.

This multidisciplinary enterprise harnesses the various skill sets of internationally recognised researchers from within the department and across the University, to address and formulate innovate solutions to current and future energy related challenges and opportunities from both a UK and global perspective.

State-of-the-art engineering science solutions are generated within a framework of the wider aspects of technological and socioeconomic interdisciplinary developments. Activity ranges from the functional surface and component level, through sub-systems, and onwards to the analysis of global energy networks. The underpinning established research expertise present to achieve this is broad ranging, encompassing fluid mechanics and aerodynamics (computational and experimental), power systems, thermodynamics, smart grids, etc.

A key enabler is a strong focus on industrial collaboration in tandem with economic, environmental and societal impact, proactively drawing upon and interacting with an extensive external network of academic and government organisations.
