Low carbon, renewable-based energy systems are critical to meet our climate change obligations and support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. These systems require a complete change in approach from our current energy system, with more distributed generation based on variable power sources, increased demands from electrification of systems such as transportation, alongside the reliability, robustness and sustainability that we require from our energy.
Supergen Energy Networks Hub
The Supergen Energy Networks Hub brings together the vibrant and diverse energy networks community to gain a deeper understanding of the interactions and inter-dependencies of energy networks.
Energy Systems Integration
The Centre for Energy Systems Integration (CESI) aim is to reduce the risks associated with securing an integrated energy system for the UK.
Pico and Micro-Hydropower Generation
Generating power from a fall in water has been used across the world to provide energy for society, and in the last two centuries as a way to provide low-carbon electricity. Pico- and micro-hydropower generation systems, under 5 kW and 100 kW respectively, are extensively used in developing countries to provide off-grid electrification.
Microgrids are a network of electrical generation source, storage elements and loads. This can be intelligently controlled to manage power flow between the different elements, supporting on- and off-grid electrical solutions for consumers.
Understanding how the transition from traditional to low carbon energy sources can be achieved is critical to meet climate change targets and the Sustainable Development Goals.
