Renewable energy is one of MFAT priority sectors for scholarship in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and always a potential sector for our scholars from the Pacific.
About the Energy Group
The Advanced Energy and Material Systems Lab is a diverse group working on complex, interdisciplinary problems. The primary research focus is finding innovations in energy systems, including human behaviour, for adaptation to reducing fossil energy consumption.
- Improving the efficiency and reducing the impact of energy conversion
- Renewable energy systems including wind, solar and geothermal
- Energy use in transport and planning for the post-peak oil urban form re-development
- Energy use in freight movements and planning for the post-peak oil circumstances
- Electricity use in the residential sector and new ICT solutions to peak demand management
- Hybrid energy-economic technology and demand transformation modelling
- GIS-based active access assessment of urban forms
- Adaptability of travel behaviour as a function of urban form and income level
