It is really exciting to be launching this new MSc. The transformation of our energy systems to zero carbon will forge a new relationship between demand and supply, where flexibility in energy demand plays a critical role. SEBE MSc will be at the cutting edge of this new field and will bring together the latest research developments with practical applications. I’m looking forward to welcoming our new students" Dr Cliff Elwell, Programme lead for Smart Energy and the Built Envionrment MSc

The course is one of a kind in terms of teaching the core components of data analysis, statistics and energy modelling, but more importantly this is framed within a whole systems approach for the energy sector. I’d recommend it for anyone interested in turning industry’s large volumes of under-utilised data into models and insights that can help further the energy transition.”
