EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand (LoLo)

Four year PhD programme in energy demand
The LoLo CDT provides world-class PhD training

Industrialised economies face three major energy challenges: climate change, energy affordability and security of supply. Over 40% of the UK’s energy demand, and carbon emissions, is associated with buildings, yet there is much we can do to improve our built stock and how we interact with it.

Energy demand and buildings is a complex socio-technical problem and must be understood better if we are deliver UK targets. However, the sector faces a skills shortage: we need more highly qualified graduates to work in government, industry, NGOs and academia.

The LoLo CDT provides world-class PhD training, including opportunities to work with leading researchers, placements with industry and a comprehensive skills and development programme. Applicants are welcomed with good degrees from diverse backgrounds, reflecting our multidisciplinary research; previous experience of energy and buildings is not required.

The second round of recruitment for 2016/17 is now closed.

You will undertake your Master’s degree and PhD at either UCL or Loughborough. Teaching is delivered by the home institution with shared teaching, workshops, visits and other activities.

The MRes covers thermodynamics, energy systems in the built environment, energy modelling and analysis, social sciences, policy, and energy economics. PhDs will be individually tailored and matched to our core strengths. As part of your studies, you will gain business and innovation skills; project and programme management skills; teamwork, communication and leadership skills; and the ability to seek solutions to complex, multi-faceted problems.

You will undertake your Master’s degree and PhD at either UCL or Loughborough. Teaching is delivered by the home institution with shared teaching, workshops, visits and other activities.
