This PhD studentship is funded in support of a recently awarded EPSRC grant in Data-driven Intelligent Energy Management System for a Micro Grid. This project aims to develop an intelligent energy management system for a grid-connected microgrid (consisting of distributed renewable energy sources, energy storages and local loads), this will maximise energy usage efficiency and make renewable generation more cost-effective whilst minimising environmental impact and provide ancillary services. This project has eight project partners including National Grid UK. The PhD student is expected to collaborate with two postdocs working in this project as well as other researchers in the project supervisor's team.

The applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible because this post is on a rolling basis and the starting date is also flexible. For an informal discussion of this opportunity, please contact Prof. Xiaowei Zhao at Xiaowei.zhao@warwick.ac.uk.

Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree (and preferably a Masters degree) or equivalent from an overseas institution.
