Good Energy Policy - Homepage Teaser

This series explores what constitutes a ‘good’ policy, conditioned not only by technology and financial factors but also by social norms and values, institutions, geopolitics, public trust and history. 

Each seminar will address a case ranging from pipelines and nuclear energy to environmental regulation and market design.

A part of the In Search of 'Good' Energy Policy - Energy@Cambridge Grand Challenge

World Economic Forum 2016, Improving solar materials efficiency using quantum mechanics, Prof. Richard Friend

Richard Friend seminar Davos 2016 - Video and Media

We have to make the solar work because it is the only abundant source of energy. Producing a coating that can seat on top of a standard silicon solar cell to increase the efficiency of solar energy could significantly improve solar technology.

World Economic Forum 2016, Self-healing concrete for low-carbon infrastructure, Prof. Abir Al-Tabbaa

Abir Al-Tabbaa seminar Davos 2016 - Video and Media

If we designed concrete structures to look after themselves, they could last longer, use far less concrete and be cost-efficient while reducing carbon emission and environmental damage. The answer and the promise lie in self-healing materials, says Abir Al Tabbaa.

Graphene means business – 2D material moves from the lab to the UK factory floor

Graphene - video media page

Cambridge is also one of the leading centres in graphene technology. Dr Krzysztof Koziol from the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy sits on the management board of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Technology. He is developing hybrid electrical wires made from copper and graphene in order to improve the amount of electric current they can carry, functional graphene heaters, anti-corrosion coatings, and graphene inks which can be used to draw printed circuit boards directly onto paper and other surfaces.

 

British Science Week: Science in Parliament

Self-Healing and Smart Coatings: The Future of Materials

Self healing smart coating - video media 

Being able to identify and repair faults or defects early on has clear social and environmental benefits as well as reducing costs for manufacturers and improving the services businesses can provide to their customers. We are interested, therefore, in how new sensors and smart surfaces can be designed and deployed to extend the operating life of machinery and manufactured products.

  

Engineering atoms inside the jet engine: the Great British Take Off

rollsroyce-video and media

Atomic-level engineering is at the forefront of modern, greener jet engine design. The increasing demand for more people to fly while reducing carbon emissions is one of the greatest aeronautical engineering challenges.

Research at the Cambridge Rolls-Royce UTC, investigates how atomic arrangements in metals influence their properties and performance. By engineering the position, size and type of atoms in metal alloys, we can radically change their capabilities
