Dr Matthew Davies and Dr Rhys Charles will be working together on ACCEPTED.
Humankind is on the brink of significant climate change and material resource shortages. We have reached the limits of our traditional ‘take-make-dispose’ linear economic models in which materials are extracted from the earth to create products which are discarded at the end of their useful lives.
The PV upscaling team at SPECIFIC has been working hard in the last year and finally their efforts have been recognised. Their paper, “All printable perovskite solar modules with 198 cm2 active area and over 6% efficiency” has been accepted in Advanced Materials Technologies and has been published online. A […]
Solar cells convert the ubiquitous power of the sun into electricity, making them an especially attractive source of sustainable energy. To do so, however, the cells should maintain their performance despite of a constant onslaught of the elements—humidity being a particular challenge for perovskite solar cells. Sagar Jain at SPECIFIC […]
The team at SPECIFIC has been working alongside the Swansea University Engineering Department and Queen Mary University of London to produce a paper on thermoelectric materials; “Thin Film Tin Selenide (SnSe) Thermoelectric Generators Exhibiting Ultralow Thermal Conductivity.” After two years of hard work, they have made the world’s first thin […]
We are delighted to announce that the Active Classroom has continued its winning streak; picking up its 7th award since completion in 2016. Last night (Thursday 21st June), the classroom received recognition from Swansea University’s ‘Research & Innovation Awards 17/18’ by winning the ‘Outstanding Research & Collaboration’ category. It was […]
The UK’s first energy-positive office, which generates more solar energy than it consumes, will be opened at Swansea University on 21st June.
We’re delighted to announce that The Active Classroom has received huge recognition at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Wales Awards tonight (Wednesday 23rd May); which was held at the Radisson Blu, Cardiff.
Active Classroom picks up further recognition at the Neath Port Talbot Building Awards by winning ‘Best Public Service Building.’
Students from University of Wales Trinity St David’s School of Architecture and Built Environment were treated to an in-depth tour of the construction process behind the UK’s first energy positive office building.
A £6.5m grant has been awarded to pump naturally-heated water from an Caerau coal mine (Maesteg) and use it to heat 150 homes. The technology developed will pump water from a depth of 230m (750ft) which has been heated by the earth to about 20.6C (70F).
