Robert Gordon University (RGU) in Aberdeen has research expertise in energy devices, energy storage, wind power, solar and photovoltaics (PV) as well as CO2 storage.
Recently RGU has worked with Aberdeen City Council to produce a baseline emissions inventory and energy analysis for the city of Aberdeen as a supporting part of the regional sustainable energy action plan. This identified the behavioral change implications of sustainable development including the social and business demands of using new technologies and intelligent buildings.
The university offers many undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Engineering with renewable energy modules. Such courses cover offshore renewables, energy and sustainability and include MSc. courses which combine environmental engineering with energy exploration. The MSc. portfolio has been further enhanced recently with the introduction of an MSc. in Engineering. This course is truly multidisciplinary, combining modules from the entire program of postgraduate study in Engineering. The majority of courses under the energy theme are accredited by the Energy Institute.
