Infinities Global is a technology start-up specialising in marine energy whose team has been developing marine energy technology for over a decade. Their mission is to deliver affordable and sustainable green energy solution through continuous R&D.

Current developments in marine energy are still at the early stages and lagging behind solar and wind energy. Conventional marine systems have low efficiency and high cost which prevents successful application at an industrial scale. This PhD will develop a new underwater electric generator that can work with low and high speed tidal flows, therefore increasing output and efficiency. It will also develop a new energy storage solution to be incorporated in the Infinities Global marine energy system using hydrogen as the medium.
The successful candidate will have a 2:1 or first degree in Engineering or another relevant subject.

This PhD will be based in Lancaster University’s Engineering department and supervised by Professors George Aggidis and Harry Hoster with expertise on energy (tidal) and storage (hydrogen) respectively.

This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is subject to funding confirmation.
