The UK is on the brink of a new age of energy efficiency

The ERBE Centre for Doctoral Training brings together three leading energy resilience institutions, UCL, Loughborough University and MaREI to deliver world class graduates ready to address tomorrows grand challenges.

The energy system is undergoing a major transition

Low carbon energy sources have an increasing role to play, accommodating them requires new flexibility in the system, and the relationship between energy supply and demand is no longer one-way.

The new EPSRC CDT in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE) brings together established energy research centres at Loughborough University (LU) and University College London (UCL) with the Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland (MaREI) Centre to train at least 68 PhD graduates through a programme of energy demand research in a whole energy system context.

The ERBE CDT is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).

in the energy and built environment field


Interesting keynote by Dr Daniel Quiggin former @LoLoCDT and current Senior Policy advisor at @beisgovuk on future energy scenarios and their over-reliance on future deployment of technologies rather than on strong early action with existing technologies #loloerbecolloquium2019

Great keynote by Dr Paula Morgenstern, former @LoLoCDT student and current Building Performance Manager at @BAMConstructUK about the work that she does on low carbon buildings and the differences and similarities with what she did while at @UCL_Energy #loloerbecolloquium2019

Prof Bob Lowe from @UCL_Energy and Prof Kevin Lomas from @lborouniversity recognise the work done by all the @LoLoCDT former students at #loloerbecolloquium2019

Natural ventilation, peer-to-peer energy trading, district heating, solar pv back-up in Nigerian estates. A snapshot of the posters being presented by our @lolocdt and @erbecdt students.

What people want from their heating system? Clare Hanmer from @UCL_Energy has been analysing the challenges of flexible energy demand with domestic heat pumps and explained the key role that practical understandings play in it #loloerbecolloquium2019
