Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE CDT) Loughborough and UCL (UK) and MaREI (IRL)

The EPSRC CDT in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE) brings together established energy research centres at Loughborough University (LU) and University College London (UCL) with the MaREI Research Centre (Ireland).

We provide a unique opportunity to work with leading researchers on multi-disciplinary projects integrated with industry and provide a comprehensive skills and development programme.

Recruitment for Academic year 2020/21 is now open.

The programme of study:

Students undertake a four-year (full-time) PhD at either Loughborough, UCL or MaREI in one of three themes:

  1. Flexibility and resilience: the interaction between buildings and the whole supply system, through new generation and storage technology.
  2. Technology and system performance: demand reduction and decarbonisation of the built environment through design, construction methods, technological innovation, monitoring and regulation.
  3. Comfort, health and well-being: buildings and energy systems that create productive work environments and affordable, clean, safe homes.

Funded students will receive a stipend, which is tax free, plus UK/EU fees for four years (conditions apply). Part-time study is also possible. For further information regarding the ERBE programme click here.
