Achieving Sustainability through Electrical Engineering with The University of Edinburgh
Sustainability has been a topic of great discussion in recent years and is often associated with words such as Conservation, Biodiversity, Environment, and Energy. The role of Electrical Engineering in Sustainability is one of great importance, particularly for Energy and the Environment.
Electricity has only been in widespread use for just over 100 years, but it’s impact on society has been immense.
What’s in it for me?
This lecture highlights the role that electrical engineering plays in achieving sustainability, particularly in renewable energy, electric vehicles, and energy efficiency.
About the speaker:
Dr. Jonathan Shek is a Lecturer within the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh and he is working in the area of power take-off and conditioning, condition monitoring, and control for sustainable energy systems.
Jonathan’s main research interests lie in power electronics and control, particularly its application in sustainable energy systems, such as marine energy converters and electric vehicles. His aim is to better enable emerging technologies in sustainable energy through the application of advanced power electronics and novel control. This area of research is highly interdisciplinary and has so far led him work on collaborative projects in academia and with industry.
