UOW Industrial Renewable Energy & Sustainability Research Project
Curious, innovative, sustainable advantage. It is with these three pillars of the Prological business in mind that we are excited to announce our new partnership with the University of Wollongong Sustainable Buildings Research Centre (SBRC). SBRC addresses the challenges of transforming buildings and built environment into more sustainable places.
Energy efficiency in the commercial sector represents an untapped opportunity to lower CO2 output and reduce operating costs. Over the next 18 months, Prological will sponsor Master of Philosophy student Craig Pickup undertake a Higher Degree Research project. Craig will develop an economic evaluation of sustainable energy generation technologies to both commercial and industrial buildings.
The research will evaluate the effectiveness and cost-efficiency of new and existing technologies when installed in existing infrastructure and designed into greenfield developments. One research outcome will be the creation of an assessment tool that will allow businesses to evaluate commercial opportunities for improving energy efficiency through the application of various technologies.
