Asha Wijethilake Haputhanthirige

Asha from Sri Lanka, who is a DTA3/Cofund Energy doctoral researcher at University of Central Lancashire, is addressing the challenges of using renewable energy within society. The expansion of renewable energy is hindered by various social, business management and engineering issues. Asha’s project therefore aims to design and validate energy trading models that can be used by households to trade their excess energy saved from renewable technologies. Key findings show that big data appear to be a significant area of consideration for energy modelling and there is a need for global modelling to address the current challenge.
