Low Carbon Transport Award

A clean energy project that aims to reduce the carbon footprint of marine vessels has earned scientists from Heriot-Watt University a major honour at the British Renewable Energy Awards 2018.

Dr David Flynn and Dr Valentin Robu from the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, received the Low Carbon Transport Award at a recent ceremony hosted by Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman, at the Savoy Hotel in London.

They were recognised for their contribution to a business led, collaborative project called the Hybrid Fusion Energy Management System (HyFES), which examines ways to further improve the benefits gained by sea vessels that switch to a hybrid propulsion system.

“It’s a great privilege to be recognised with this award and really is testament to the hard work carried out by our team at Heriot-Watt University.”
