Domestic Energy Research Associate Post

domestic energy researchLoughborough Design School are looking for a Domestic Energy Research Associate to work across two EPSRC funded projects (i-STUTE and 4S-DHW).

In particular the role will be to develop user requirements for thermal storage and hot water. The post is full time for 22 months.
i-STUTE, an End-Use Energy Demand Centre, is an interdisciplinary centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy and is funded through the UK Research Councils’ Energy Programme. It is a £5.3M project over 5 years (2013-2018) involving four universities and an external academic, private and governmental organisation network. It is developing technologies that aim to reduce energy consumption and deliver cost-effective heating and cooling which will help the UK achieve its target of a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 80% by 2050.
4S-DHW (Small, Smart, Sustainable Systems for Domestic Hot Water is a new project that builds on the research undertaken in i-STUTE (and includes several of the same partners) with a particular focus on the provision of domestic hot water in an energy efficient and acceptable way.
