As a sustainable energy engineer, my ultimate goal is to use my research to contribute to the decarbonisation of the electricity system. This involves investigating innovative smart grid solutions using state-of-the-art technologies like blockchain, smart contracts and artificial intelligence. In a nutshell, my PhD research explores the techno-economic potential of peer-to-peer energy trading and energy storage. In this scenario, we maximise our local consumption which reduces the stress on the grid and decreases our reliance on centrally generated and fossil-fuelled supply.
