UCL Energy Institute – IWSA Supporter
The UCL Energy Institute was established as UCL’s response to the global challenges of mitigating climate change and providing energy security in the 21st century, as well as to support the UCL Grand Challenges. UCL has a substantial track record of energy research and world-leading competencies in a wide range of disciplines; the mission of the UCL Energy Institute is to build on this foundation by coordinating and stimulating research on energy and carbon emissions reductions across the university. The Institute helps build multidisciplinary teams and supports academics in applying their skills to the energy problem.
UCL Energy Institute is part of a £4 million multi-disciplinary research project, Shipping in Changing Climates (SCC), predominantly funded by the RCUK Energy Programme, which brings together the UCL researchers with Manchester, Southampton, Newcastle and Strathclyde, in close collaboration with a core industry stakeholder group of Shell, Lloyd’s Register, Rolls Royce, BMT and Maritime Strategies International.
Within the Shipping in Changing Climates project, the UCL Energy Institute and the Carbon War Room are working on the Shipping Innovation Fast Tracker (ShIFT) programme that aims to accelerate the deployment of technologies such as kites, sails, flattener rotors, air lubrication, that deliver significant savings to meet the decarbonisation challenge.
In addition, the UCL Energy Institute has worked on various shipping related projects including the recent update of international shipping emissions, the IMO 3rd GHG study.
