Researchers at the Institute for Energy Systems in the School of Engineering participated in the TROPOS project, a European collaborative project to develop a floating multi-use platform system able to generate renewable energy alongside commerical uses, such as fish farming.
In efforts to combat climate change, carbon accounting tools can help to steer us towards effective mitigation decisions, and away from poor ones. But what is carbon accounting and how can it help us to be climate smart?
Permafrost thaw, the melting of frozen soils caused by global climate change, could have potentially devastating effects on carbon dioxide levels within the earth’s atmosphere. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh are conducting novel research into the potential role plants could play in helping to prevent this thawing from taking place.
Researchers at Edinburgh University have developed a new technique of remote sensing which will lead to a significant advance in our ability to monitor deforestation and land disturbances in tropical forests.
Our academic network aims to bring together academics, including postgraduate researchers, interested in social responsibility and sustainability-related themes, from any discipline.
