The School is partnering with Babock International to develop a £2.4 million engineering research facility which promises to speed the development of materials and structures used in tidal energy, transport and other industries.
Two of our School's partnership projects have been recognised for making outstanding contributions to the Scottish renewables energy industry at the Scottish Green Energy Awards ceremony on Thursday 6 December 2018.
Academics at the School of Engineering and the School of Geosciences have re-launched the world’s first free open online course exploring how carbon capture and storage technology (CCS) can be used to tackle climate change.
Ruben Bravo, a PhD student in the Institute for Energy Systems, has won an award for a presentation he delivered at the 3rd Annual Conference in Energy Storage and Its Applications from the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy. In addition, he was awarded a grant to collaborate with researchers at the University of Seville on the optimisation of solar power plants with thermochemical storage.
A team from the School of Engineering has claimed sixth prize of £5,000 in the Winton Climate Prediction Market competition, which saw academic teams attempt to predict monthly UK temperature and rainfall over six months from April to September 2018.
Our Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Wind and Marine Energy Systems, which is co-led by the University of Strathclyde and Edinburgh, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Scottish Green Energy Awards 2018 (SGEA18).
