The work of the Energy, Emissions and Environment Research Group (EEERG) focuses on supporting national energy needs through research supported by the government, industry and the EU.
Through contributing to government policy and the development of educational programmes in the area of sustainable energy usage to address society’s needs, EEERG is developing new networks which are generating research and development projects in the area of innovative and effective renewable energy systems.
The Group’s main activities include the development of technologies to enable the use and distribution of renewable energy resources. This includes development of micro turbine systems for homes, development of waste heat recovery systems, and development of newer technologies to improve performance, reliability and the life of existing renewable energy systems including wind energy systems.
The Group also works on new initiatives and research on energy management systems and power integration systems and on developing products to monitor energy systems such as off and on shore wind farms, compression ignition engines and combined heat and power systems.
Other important elements of the work include providing integrated consultancy services to local industries, involvement in international research and development activities and helping to develop community education through alternative energy centres.
