Bioenergy value chains

Most energy system studies of the UK indicate a strong role for bioenergy in the coming decades, especially if the UK is to meet its climate change mitigation ambitions. However, there is a need to understand how bioenergy systems can be implemented without negative sustainability-related impacts.

Ms Frances Hill

Frances is currently studying for a PhD in Environmental Engineering, looking at how energy is used in a supermarket as a building, and at how Building Regulations could be changed to reduce this level of use. Alongside this she has been involved in projects looking at how engineers learn, with particular focus on Problem Based Learning.

Prof Simon Guy

- Member of the University's Sustainability Steering Group

My research aims to critically understanding the co-evolution of design and development strategies and socio-economic processes shaping cities. This approach has involved the development and application of an innovative sociotechnical approach to researching architecture, urban development, technological innovation and urban change analysis and integration of previously disconnected research fields - architecture and urban planning, the property sector and utilities industry.

Dr Tim Stallard

Dr Stallard joined the University of Manchester in October 2006 after two years of interdisciplinary research concerning the performance and economics of marine energy converters. This followed completion of a DPhil in the Ocean Engineering Dynamics group at Oxford University where he developed an interest in both vortex- and wave-induced forces. His present research concerns offshore renewables including tidal stream, wave energy and offshore wind.
