Directors

 

Professor Tim Green - Institute Director

Professor Tim GreenTim is Professor of Electrical Power Engineering and received a BSc (Eng) from Imperial College London and a PhD from Heriot-Watt University both in Electrical Engineering. Tim’s research interest is in formulating the future form of the electricity network to support low carbon futures. A particular theme is how the flexibility of power electronics and control systems can be used to accommodate new generation patterns and new types of load, such as EV charging, as part of the emerging smart grid. He also has interests in offshore DC networks and of management of low voltage networks. Tim leads the HubNet Supergen consortium of 8 UK universities coordinating research in low carbon energy networks and is the Network Champion for the Research Councils UK. He also teaches on the Energy Transmission and Systems course of the MSc in Sustainable Energy Futures.

Professor Anthony Kucernak - Deputy Director

Anthony Kucernak  Anthony is Professor of  Physical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, and has extensive experience in solid polymer electrolyte fuel cells, supercapacitors, and the design of new electrochemical techniques. His group currently studies a large number of aspects of fuel cell systems including the development of new electrocatalysts, techniques to characterise and study electrocatalysts, fuel cell electrodes, and new methods to characterise fuel cells. He is also Director of the UK Centre for Energy Storage.

Professor Graham Hughes - Director of Education

Graham Hughes  Graham is Professor of Environmental Fluid Mechanics in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. His research interests lie in understanding the fluid mechanics governing flows in natural, industrial and built environments and its wide range of applications to problems in energy and climate. Current themes include energy efficiency of the built environment and solar thermal power generation.

He is responsible for the Energy Futures Lab Education Programmes and supports the Institute Director in the delivery of the overall Energy Futures Lab strategy and deputises for the Institute Director where appropriate.

Dr Rob Gross - Director of Policy

Rob Gross Dr Gross is head of the Centre of Energy Policy and Technology at Imperial College London and supports and promotes policy technology research through the Energy Futures Lab as our Director of Policy. Dr Gross has acted as an expert advisor to a number of government panels including Energy and Climate Change Select Committee and the House of Lords European Union Select Committee. He also teaches on the Energy Economics and Policy course of the MSc in Sustainable Energy Futures.
