Course summary

Research profile

The Energy Efficient and Sustainable Technologies area is well established and has major research projects at its heart focusing on sustainable energy use in food chains and energy and the built environment. Other research strengths of the theme include renewable energy technologies, particularly solar thermal and PV technologies, advanced heat and mass transfer, environmental control of buildings heat recovery and heat to power generation. Our researchers make contributions in a number of fundamental and applied areas including:

  • Optimal ways for reducing energy use in food chains
  • Heating, cooling and refrigeration
  • Microclimate and environmental design
  • Single and two-phase heat transfer and thermal systems

Members of the Energy Efficient and Sustainable Technology group served on the Government’s Steering Committee for the development of decarbonisation roadmaps for the food sector to 2050. This work has progressed to the second stage and involves the development of decarbonisation action plans in consultation with key stakeholders.
