Energy systems have evolved over decades from individual energy devices and small sub-systems into a complex set of systems, both physical (e.g. electricity grids, gas networks, etc.), institutional (e.g. regulatory and economic) and at all scales (e.g. from individual buildings to continental scale). These systems are increasingly integrated physically (e.g. combined heat and power and electric vehicles), institutionally (e.g. gas/electricity markets) and across scales (e.g. demand side management in power grids). Energy Systems Integration (ESI) is focussed on the interfaces between these systems where there are new challenges and opportunities requiring research, demonstration and deployment to reap the commercial and societal benefits.
The UCD Energy Institute has recently started an Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) which is an €11m capacity building project co-funded by Science Foundation Ireland, industry and philanthropic donation. As part of this programme the Energy Institute is now seeking candidates for multiple Post-Doctoral level research opportunities. The openings span across a wide range of topics, such as Electrical, Chemical and Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, Economics, Finance, Consumer Behaviour and Technology Adoption.
ESIPP is led by Professor Mark O’Malley in University College Dublin and partners with Dublin City University (DCU), Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI), University of Limerick (UL) and Trinity College Dublin (TCD). The research work will be carried out with strong collaborative links to major energy industry players, such as AIB, EirGrid, Ervia, ESB, Glen Dimplex and seventeen other official industry collaborators.
