thermal energy PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 110 thermal energy PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Sustainable Heating and Cooling Technologies

The project. The Sustainable Thermal Energy Technologies (STET) research group in the School of Engineering has a PhD scholarship opportunity in the area of thermal energy. Read more

Renewable Energy and Energy Storage

Getting to 100% renewable energy requires a massive improvement in the performance of energy storage systems which can store vast amounts of energy for periods of days to weeks. Read more

Binks Institute for Sustainability: The value of energy storage in a ‘zero carbon’ energy system, with applications to UK

As the global economy is transitioning away from high carbon energy resources, it is widely expected that a large share of future electricity will be generated from renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar (see, for example, IEA (2023)). Read more

Lead-free materials for electrostatic energy storage

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
This multidisciplinary project spans materials science, chemistry and physics to develop lead-free environmental friendly materials for enhanced electrostatic energy storage. Read more

Energy Storage Modelling

Supervisory Team.   Prof Andrew Cruden, Prof Richard Wills, Prof Suleiman Sharkh. Project description. Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship to investigate the electrical, thermal and economic modelling of a range of electrical energy storage types (e.g. Read more

Material degradation study of energy storage materials for renewable technologies PhD

This is a self-funded PhD position to work with Dr Adnan Syed in the Surface Engineering and Precision Centre. The PhD project will focus studying high temperature corrosion mechanisms in details to identify the material degradation details in extreme environments. Read more

Numerical investigation of MHD systems coupling the induction formulation with thermal models

The department of Astronautical, Electrical and Energy Engineering at the Sapienza University of Rome is inviting applications for the following fully funded PhD project/studentship, expected to commence November 2024. Read more

Distributed Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems for Energy Transition

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Hydrogen production from electrolysis of waste biomass

Established water electrolysis technologies rely on valuable high-purity water which adds significant demand pressure to worldwide resources needed for drinking water, irrigation and sanitation. Read more

Innovations in Waste Energy Minimisation from Maritime Engineering Power and Propulsion Systems

Supervisory Team.   Prof Alan J Murphy & Prof Dominic Hudson. Project description. Although maritime transport is one of the most energy efficient, the cumulative carbon footprint from global shipping is equivalent a large industrialised nation (~3% of global total). Read more
