UCL Energy Institute
George has over 10 years’ experience in the heating industry, working internationally across Europe including an industrially sponsored PhD at UCL on the dynamic performance characteristics of domestic boilers.
His research interests are in the areas of domestic heating efficiency improvement in the real world and the wider national impact of heating energy demand pathways. He is actively involved in applying measurement and data analysis techniques to identify dynamic behavioural characteristics of whole heating systems and measures to improve efficiency.
George is currently working on the role of heating systems and technologies in future energy and power demand pathways using tools such as the National Household Model (NHM) and the way heating controls influence energy demand from a modelling and real world perspective.
