performance. This includes environmental policy and

management, ecology, stakeholder engagement, planning,

building services, sustainable engineering, and sustainable

energy, ventilation and heating.

Centre for Energy and Power Management

The Centre for Energy and Power Management recognises the

need to: better manage energy within industrial settings, cut

carbon emissions, reduce overall energy costs, and secure future

supply. Research expertise covers four principal areas:

n

Intelligent energy management systems;

n

Distributed energy networks;

n

Long endurance unmanned aerial systems; and

n

Energy and society.

This centre is a product of a UCLan-BAE Systems strategic

partnership which brings together a unique critical mass of

expertise on energy-related research to investigate energy losses,

(renewable) energy resources, efficient single energy systems,

distributive energy networks, and load balances.

Engagement

These three centres all embrace sustainability to engage

with industry, government, public/private bodies, and

societal stakeholders.

Current and recent research achievements

Some examples of recent successful projects include:

n

Discovery of ‘micro’ balls of mercury within cold cathode lamps

(LCD displays);

n

Project OPAL – environmental engagement (over 25,000 sites

across England studied by local people);

n

Delivery of major international conferences (climate change,

design, procurement);

n

Development of innovative intelligent energy

management systems;

n

Creation of new energy sustainability indicators;

n

Project BRAID – research in ageing and ICT;

n

Project Public Private Partnerships in Transport:

Trends & Theory;

n

Project BENEFIT – business models for transport

infrastructure; and

n

Project ODESSA – care delivery models to support

ageing-in-place.

UCLan’s sustainability research continues to explore major

challenges in partnership with its external stakeholders to produce

tangible, innovative solutions with real impact.
