Grant Wilson is a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering with research interests in multi-vector, multi-scale data analytics, and a particular focus on the comparison of energy vectors over similar timeframes. Grant has published 14 research papers in scientific journals as well several online pieces in The Conversation.
He is focussed on the decarbonisation of heat as a significant challenge for Great Britain given its current use of natural gas to provide the majority of its heat demand. This multidisciplinary problem requires greater research and innovation on the ability to shift the timing of heat demand as well as reduce average and peak demand.
He is also interested in innovations in teaching and learning, and passionate about the benefits of using empirical energy data in teaching and wider outreach on the challenges of the energy transition.
