Dr Madeleine Morris is a Research Associate at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment, working within the Energy Revolution Research Consortium on the policy, regulation and innovation frameworks that will support smart, low-carbon energy systems.

Within EnergyREV, the team are working on producing rapid evidence assessments of the current policy and regulatory landscape of the GB energy system through the lens of smart local energy systems. Our first review looking at electric vehicles and electricity storage, and our second review on digital energy platforms are out now. 

Madeleine obtained her PhD through the Plastic Electronics Centre for Doctoral Training (PE-CDT) at Imperial College London in 2018. Based in the Chemistry department, she researched how ferroelectric materials could be used to enhance efficiencies of solar energy conversion, under the supervision of Prof James Durrant. She received her MRes in Plastic Electronics from the PE-CDT in 2014 and an MChem (Hons) Chemistry from The University of Edinburgh in 2012. Before joining Imperial, she worked as Outreach Officer for The Solar Spark, spreading the word about the potential of solar energy to contribute to the UK's energy mix.
