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.

Energy represents a substantial, broad, and highly interdisciplinary theme within the College of Science and Engineering, which includes: the discovery of new materials for energy harvesting, generation, storage, and transformation (Chemistry and Physics); the development of new devices incorporating new materials and energy technologies (Engineering); the efficient and robust delivery of diverse forms of energy (Engineering, Informatics, and Mathematics); the study and mitigation of the impact of energy generation on climate and natural resources (GeoSciences); and the formulation of policy and governance required to ensure a secure and sustainable energy system (GeoSciences, Informatics, Mathematics).
