About us

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Power Networks was designed to enable those wishing to study for a PhD in this area to further their research interests while developing a wider understanding of the sector and the personal skills to further their careers.

The Centre has helped ensure that future networks support the electrification of energy, especially heat and transport, and encourage greater use of low carbon energy sources.

To meet these challenges engineers, scientists, mathematicians, social scientists and business experts have been brought together to solve our future problems in: power network design, operation and management; effect of changing energy demands on networks, and the role of planning, governance and cross-cutting technologies.

Did you know?

Energy networks directly employ over 28,000 people in Great Britain and skill changes will require 11,000 new recruits by 2022.
