The Energy GPS: on energy future, fossils and beyond
This project provides an engineering based multidisciplinary research on Sustained Energy Security. The aim is to investigate the energy future based on three main pillars, defined as the Energy GPS:
1) Geopolitics (accessible) – the oil & gas industry is stronger than any Geopolitics side effect
2) Price (affordable) – affordable and less volatile
3) Supply (available) – of both Fossil and Renewables / Alternatives.
The original idea was based on the discussions with Moty Kuperberg, the Plenary / Invited Speaker of the International Symposium on Energy.
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
