Position: Research Fellow: Cost-benefit analysis of zero-carbon technologies in heating and cooling
Institution: University College London
Department: Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: An EPSRC project “Heat Accumulation from Renewables with Valid Energy Storage and Transformation; HARVEST” (£1.5 million) has been jointly awarded to UCL and the University of Birmingham. This project aims to develop a novel technology for generating zero-carbon heating in winter and cooling in summer. The investigators are a multidisciplinary team with decarbonisation experts in economic analysis, environmental assessment, and technology development. The team at UCL will carry out techno-economic assessment of the proposed technical solution and analyse its role in achieving the UK’s 2050 Net Zero carbon emission targets. The successful applicant will assess the carbon emissions reduction effects of the proposed solution under different scenarios by 2050 and carry out cost-benefits analysis at the national level. Policy implications will be given for the UK’s energy and climate strategies, such as renewable heat incentive and zero-carbon heating targets
Requirements: You hold a good Bachelor’s degree and a PhD in economics, management, or a relevant built environment subject. The Research Fellow will work towards liaising with colleagues at UCL and across the consortium at all levels and in different business functions; have a proactive approach and ability to communicate effectively in a variety of formats is essential. Experience of working in a research environment is desirable, together with stakeholder management experience to enable them to manage the partnership effectively. They will have a commitment to high-quality research and development and be able to work collaboratively as part of a team
