Wave energy company Mocean Energy has selected technology developed by the School's Professor Markus Mueller to power its new prototype. Mocean won £3.3million in funding from Scottish Government-funded Wave Energy Scotland (WES) earlier this year, to develop and build a half-scale prototype of its Blue Horizon wave machine. The prototype will be deployed in real sea conditions off Orkney next year.
The School of Engineering is part of a network of leading UK universities and international industry bodies aiming to accelerate the switch to green energy and propulsion across road, rail, sea and air freight modes. Three academics from our School are representing the University of Edinburgh in the network: Dr Ignazio Maria Viola who is Co-Investigator on the project, alongside Professor Steve Finney and Professor Markus Müller – all from the School’s Institute for Energy Systems (IES).
For International Women in Engineering Day 2019, Anna Garcia-Teruel shares a snapshot of her work on renewable technologies as a PhD student in the School's Institute for Energy Systems (IES), and her advice for the next generation of women interested in studying engineering.
Two of our School's partnership projects have been recognised for making outstanding contributions to the Scottish renewables energy industry at the Scottish Green Energy Awards ceremony on Thursday 6 December 2018.
Reporting to the Senior Experimental Officer (SEO), who manages the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility, the School of Engineering is seeking to appoint an Experimental Officer who will be actively involved in the laboratory’s operation and tank testing activities.
