EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind & Marine Energy Systems
This centre offers the UK’s only comprehensive doctoral training programme in Wind & Marine Energy. It brings together the leading UK research groups in Wind Energy at Strathclyde and Marine Energy at Edinburgh University.
Wind and marine energy are the most promising renewable energies for the UK. Their contribution to electricity generation is central to UK plans to meet binding EU obligations to provide 15% of all UK energy from non-carbon sources by 2020. The centre will help the UK meet these ambitious targets and through support from its key UK and global business and industry partners, develop the new generation of high skilled professionals needed to lead the vibrant energy sector.
