The world is poised on the brink of two historic energy transformations: replacing oil with electricity in transportation, and replacing high carbon, finite-supply coal and natural gas with renewable wind and solar electricity production. This project investigates the future energy needs and engineering reality, the results will focus on what actions to take currently. The following stages are envisaged for the project:
1) Study future energy needs 2) Study the engineering reality in energy production and consumption. 3) Proposal on actions to take currently to meet the future energy need. 4) Justification of the proposal.
The successful candidate should have (or expect to achieve) a minimum of a UK Honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Engineering.
Essential background: Energy; Engineering.
Knowledge of: Energy
