Research projects

PhD: Democratisation of Energy Data and Algorithms

In response to decarbonisation targets and technological change, energy systems are shifting from largely top-down linear structures to ones that are more distributed, multi-directional, and data-driven. Emerging technologies are being deployed across these new systems for diverse purposes – for example storage management, peer to peer trading, or distribution automation. This project will examine the implications of increased use of data and emerging technologies in energy, and their potential to influence the democratisation of energy.
