Renewable Energy and Low Carbon Generation
ICEPT has a range of interests and expertise in renewable energy and low carbon systems, encompassing individual technologies as well as wider energy systems.
Specifically there is focus upon energy generation technologies at different scales, covering larger plant, such as nuclear and offshore wind, and smaller distributed technologies, such as onshore wind and photovoltaics.
As the future mix of generating technologies and demand loads on the system may change significantly another area of interest is to understand how electricity networks will evolve and what role enabling technologies, such as energy storage and demand-side management may play.
The current portfolio of projects includes funding from the UK Research Councils, government departments, the EU, international bodies, industry and NGOs. We have strong links to other departments and centres at Imperial College, including Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic, Civil and Chemical Engineering and Materials Science.
