EnergyREV is a collaboration between 22 UK universities, including more than 60 researchers working together to tackle the challenges around smart local energy systems from an interdisciplinary and whole-systems viewpoint. The Consortium provides an unprecedented breadth of expertise and depth of knowledge. You will be based at the University of Manchester and work closely with partners at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Strathclyde, as well as with the work packages led by Imperial College London, University College London (UCL) and others.

The work will involve a telephone survey and workshops with energy companies across the supply chain.
You will be based within an interdisciplinary and collegiate team of researchers at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in the University of Manchester.
