UCL Consultant of the Year Award 2015
22 June 2015
UCL Consultants were delighted to award the Enterprise Award for Consultancy to Dr Tristan Smith from UCL's Energy Institute.
Dr Smith and his team working with UCL Consultants, have, over the last 5 years, undertaken a variety of applied research and consultancy contracts from a number of stakeholders in the maritime industry. The projects range from policy analysis to scenario modelling and technical support. All the projects have been associated in some way to the energy efficiency and emissions from international shipping - the focus of the group's research and mission - working with organisations such as The European Bank of Construction & Development (EBRD) and the Royal Belgian Shipbuilders.
One of the largest contracts came from the UN-designated agency for regulating international shipping, the International Maritime Organisation, which involved leading a consortium of ten organisations to produce the Third IMO Greenhouse Gas Study 2014: a major publication for the industry, which will be used as a reference for CO2 emission regulatory discussions for the next five years.
UCL Consultants offers its congratulations to Tristan and colleagues and we look forward to continuing our work together in this important and highly topical area.
