Calling our Supergen ECR to join our cross-hub webinar

March 3rd, 2021

Wednesday 3 March – 10:00-11:30

We are hosting our second cross-hub webinar to allow ECRs from all the Supergen Hubs to connect and share their exciting projects! This will be a great chance to see what research is happening across the whole Supergen network and potentially find some new opportunities for cross-hub collaboration.

We have the following great speakers lined up to talk about their projects. Each will be giving a rapid presentation to get you up to speed on their exciting research area.

Opening by Jianing Li (University of Birmingham, ECR committee – Energy Storage)

Mona Faraji-Niri (University of Warwick, Energy Storage)

“Machine learning for battery production digitalisation: smarter electrode manufacturing”

James Lehoux (University of Southampton, Energy Storage)

“Image-based modelling of electrochemical devices: linking structure to performance

Naveed Arshad (Aberystwyth University, Bioenergy)

“Resources Overview – Potential Areas for Bioenergy Crops”

Shuming Zhang (Queens University, Bioenergy)

“Energy efficient biomass-to-syngas conversion via auto-thermal CaO looping biomass gasification”

Kumar Debnath (Heriot Watt University, Energy Networks)

“Decarbonisation of energy systems of South Asian developing economies through regional collaborations”

Matthias Noebels (Manchester University, Energy Networks)

“Bridging the Gap between Resilience and Cascading Analysis”

Samuel Scott (Bristol University, Offshore Renewables)

“An overview of the Wind Blade Research Hub Activities”

Pablo Ouro Barba (Manchester University, Offshore Renewables)

“Which hydrokinetic turbines are suitable for islands and remote communities?”

Luke Jones (SuperSolar)

“Super-Hydrophobic, Anti-soiling Coatings for Photovoltaic Module Cover Glass”

Jonathon Harwell (SuperSolar)

About the Supergen hubs

Despite their vital importance to the UK’s energy sector, industry and society, there is no current whole systems approach to studying the interconnected and interdependent nature of energy network infrastructure and the challenges it faces. The Supergen Energy Networks Hub will establish a vibrant, well-connected, diverse, open and communicative energy networks community with a deeper understanding of whole systems approaches to energy networks.

The Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy Hub provides research leadership to connect academia, industry, policy and public stakeholders, inspire innovation and maximise societal value in offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.

The SuperSolar Hub is a complementary mix of researchers within the photovoltaics (PV) field in the UK, with internationally recognised expertise. By working together and engaging with industry, the SuperSolar Hub has played a crucial role in the development of perovskites as exciting Third Generation PV materials that are now on the cusp of commercial realisation.

Research within the Supergen Bioenergy Hub looks at the whole bioenergy chain, examining the characteristics and potential of different biomass and feedstocks, developing pre-treatment and conversion processes and identifying the best ways to deliver bioenergy. It also takes a holistic view of energy systems, assessing the role and impact of bioenergy on them and on related sectors. The hub’s research is underpinned by strong engagement with industry, policy and societal stakeholders.

The Supergen Energy Storage Network+ connects and serves stakeholders across the whole energy community, advancing and championing UK energy storage research and deployment. Driven by a multi-disciplinary investigator team and a well-established and growing base of expert members, Supergen Network+ will convene the energy storage community across discipline to enable it to grow, to flourish and to strengthen its leading position in the sector.
