Course summary

Overview

The transition of our energy system to net zero carbon is a challenge; a new relationship between supply and demand must be forged, where how we consume and store energy is central to ensuring system robustness and optimising costs. ERBE will train you to understand the systemic, radical, multi and interdisciplinary challenges we face, and equip you with the leadership credentials to effect change. The 4-year programme will provide the knowledge, research and transferable skills to enable graduates in subjects from physics to social sciences to pursue research in this emerging field. Supported by experienced researchers, and working together as a cohort, students will study a wide range of topics at the intersection of the energy system and the built environment.

Careers

The global transition to low carbon energy sources will require significant shifts to the interaction between people, buildings and energy systems. Significant new investment is expected, for example, in the UK the Clean Growth Strategy will “support around £3.6bn of investment to upgrade around a million homes … ”; spend “£4.5bn to support innovative low carbon heat technologies in homes and businesses ….”; and “invest around £184m [including] two new £10m innovation programmes”. Graduates of the closely related Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand have found employment in BEIS, MHCLG, IEA, the construction industry, consulting engineering and academia.
