The Energy, Environment and Atmospheric Sciences programme, Energy and Built environment tracks

The Energy division runs two tracks of the EAS PhD programme on Energy and the Sustainable Built Environment.  The energy track provides a comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of energy systems analysis and modelling in energy planning, advanced knowledge of energy and environmental topics and calculation methods, understanding of the use of Renewable Energy Sources and particularly on the status of Concentrating Solar Thermal technologies, and understanding of designing, modelling and optimizing power plants and other systems based on renewable energy sources. It also gives a deep knowledge of advanced concepts of sustainability and sustainable built environment, and computational resources in order to engage in interdisciplinary activities related to the built environment.
