UKERC: Tackling global energy challenges – DTA Energy

Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA) Administrator Ben Diette writes for the The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) about University Alliance’s DTA programme in Energy.

DTA Energy launched in 2016 and connects students and staff from 11 Alliance universities.

“DTA Energy focuses on producing doctoral graduates equipped with the skills and experience to tackle the global challenge of ensuring future security and sustainability of energy supplies and the management of energy demand.

Whether the communities of the future are mega-cities, urban, rural or remote, the infrastructure that supports them – including housing, manufacturing, transport and services – will rely on an energy generation and distribution network that is stable, secure, and resilient to climate change and terrorism. They will need researchers and leaders able to work across disciplinary and sector boundaries to meet these challenges.”
