The Centre brings together engineers, scientists, mathematicians, social scientists, and business experts. Together, this multidisciplinary team has helped us work towards our long term goals of supporting the electrification of energy, especially heat and transport, and encouraging greater use of low energy carbon systems. For that reason, the CDT has attracted people from a variety of academic backgrounds. Low carbon transformation can only be achieved through the provision of highly trained and passionate people in all of the fields mentioned above. That is what this CDT has set out to achieve.
The multidisciplinary and collaborative nature of the training environment has helped develop the knowledge and skills needed for a career at the forefront of power networks research, design development, and management. And with support from leading industrial partners, students have been presented with the perfect opportunity to interact with potential future employers and undertake personal development activities catered to the career they wish to pursue.
