The School’s Deputy Head of School and Bert Whittington Chair Professor Gareth Harrison is part of an expert panel which recently concluded a major inquiry into the future of Scotland’s energy. The two-year long inquiry was initiated by the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE), Scotland’s National Academy, to address the challenge of meeting Scotland’s future energy requirements in the face of increasing demand, power station closures, and pressing carbon reduction targets.

The inquiry's report suggested that wind energy (onshore and offshore) could play a role in meeting Scotland's future energy needs

The Carbon Capture and Separation Processes Laboratory in the School of Engineering is seeking to appoint an Experimental Officer who will be actively involved in contributing to the research programme of the Laboratory which runs as a small research facility (SRF).

Scientists from the Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) research partnership have competitively won a 70% share of a £4 million fund for vital research into technology to support UK industry's efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.

Researchers from SCCS will lead three out of four projects being funded by EPSRC's Research Challenges in Industrial CCS fund, and will work closely with industry partners on developing flexible and cost-effective CO2 capture technologies.
