“Nuclear, renewables, energy storage and other low-carbon technologies: an energy systems perspective on policy options”
Dr Paul Dodds, UCL Energy Institute
Dr Paul Dodds is Lecturer in Energy Systems at the UCL Energy Institute, University College London and will be visiting Adelaide next week. Paul specialises in energy system scenario modelling. He led the development of a new energy system model, UKTM, which has been adopted as the principal in-house model by the UK Government for long-term climate change assessments. He regularly interacts with government and industry, and is a member of the Government’s Green Hydrogen Standard Working Group and Energy Storage Steering Group.
Paul has been at the forefront of academic efforts to understand future scenarios for the UK gas networks. He has examined the potential uses of both hydrogen and bioenergy across the economy. His current research includes leading a large project on energy storage integration in low-carbon energy systems and leading the energy vectors sub-theme of the UK Energy Research Centre.
Paul had a varied career prior to joining UCL, which included four years’ work as a nuclear power plant consultant and working on Australia’s irrigation water challenges for CSIRO at the Waite Campus in Adelaide.
