Alexandros received his undergraduate diploma (5 years) in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens. In 2007 he came to London and obtained an MSc in Building Services Engineering with Sustainable Energy from Brunel University. He then worked as a building services engineer for a consultancy in London. In 2010 he joined the London-Loughborough Doctorate Training Centre from which he obtained his MRes in Energy Demand Reduction. In 2011 Alexandros started a PhD at UCL Chemical Engineering.

Research project

Title: System integration of micro-CHP for residential energy demand reduction  
Supervisors:

1st Prof Eric Fraga
2nd Dr Dan Brett
3rd Dr Cliff Elwell (Bartlett)

The reduction of energy consumption in the building sector is a key factor in the attempt to achieve the target of 80% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050. One of the most promising technologies for reducing energy consumption in residential buildings and carbon dioxide emissions to atmosphere is micro combined heat and power (micro-CHP). In this research project an investigation of ways to integrate fuel cell micro-CHP in UK houses will be carried out with the aim being to improve system design, control and overall efficiency in order to satisfy energy demand and reduce CO2 emissions. The objectives of the research are the development of a model that predicts and simulates the performance of fuel cell micro-CHP in residential buildings and to propose methods that the design can be optimised.
