EPSRC centre for doctoral training in resilient decarbonised fuel energy systems

Re-inventing the energy world

What is a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT)?

Centres for Doctoral Training, or CDTs for short, are funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) in our case by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Council (EPSRC). 

As well was being part of their research group, PhD students in CDTs are trained in cohorts. Students take part in a structured cohort-wide training programme (see our training section), building their scientific network and opportunities for collaboration.

Please note that recuitment into this CDT has now ended.

Our research

Our goal is to support major reductions in society‚Äôs carbon footprint by finding radically different ways to operate our existing energy systems. We need to reduce or eliminate their carbon dioxide emissions to address climate change concerns and eliminate use of fossil fuels while ensuring affordable and reliable energy. 

The Centre is designed to be industrially focussed. We ensure that all the projects are targeted at meeting specific current and future needs of our partners. We work with numerous companies which cover a broad range of energy-intensive industries.
