We were pleased to meet the Faculty of Creative & Cultural Industries at the University of Portsmouth including Professor Steffen Lehmann, Director of the Cluster of Sustainable cities and other cluster members including Dr Alessandro Melis, Francis Graves and Walter Menteth to discuss how the Innovate UK funded research project WindAssure can be integrated into the urban environment.
Professor Lehmann said; “It's excellent news that we are able to work with such an innovation-driven industry partner, which allows us to work on a cutting-edge R&D activity and contribute in a meaningful way on the sustainability and design integration aspects of novel urban energy solutions. The project is tackling one of today’s grand challenges, which is how to generate renewable energy through decentralised systems that have no more rotating elements and can feed the generated energy into a smart grid, which will allow the city to turn into a power station.”
We look forward to engaging more in the future with this research collaboration.
