SFI and EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment

The ERBE CDT brings together world-leading academics from established energy research centres at MaREI, Loughborough University (LU) and University College London (UCL).

The CDT will train the future innovators and leaders capable of driving the future energy transformation. Students are trained through a programme of taught courses and PhD research hosted by the leading energy research groups in the UK and Ireland.

The training is led by world-leaders in their field and spans the technical, social and economic aspects of energy in the built environment, including: new and renewable energy systems; energy storage; smart controls; data analytics; socio-technical systems; people-centred design; human behaviour and energy economics.

It aims to promote excellence in research through the training of cohorts of doctoral students and the fostering of collaboration between UK and Ireland based researchers.

Energy Resilience in the Built Environment (ERBE) Summer School

The 2022 Summer School for our ERBE Students (Energy Resilience in the Built Environment) took place from July 5-6th in the UK.

MaREI ERBE Students from UCC, MTU, TU Dublin, NUI Galway joined students from Loughborough University and the University of London for this key part of their training and participated in a series of challenges and networking activities in the unique surroundings of Robinson College, Cambridge.

Prof. Brian Norton & Dr. Paul O’Sullivan also attended and joined the judging panel for the student videos produced during the meeting.

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