If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jon Cullen.

Approximately one third of global energy use is associated with heating and cooling air in buildings, and many of the speakers in the series have identified the major energy efficiency opportunity available through providing heating via a heat pump. This talk will give an overview of the range of heat pumps available, and assess their future potential

Alex White is a Senior Lecturer in Thermofluids at Cambridge University Engineering Department. He is also a Fellow and Director of Studies at Peterhouse. Alex read Engineering at King’s College Cambridge between 1985 and 1988, and remained at King’s for his PhD. After four years of post-doctoral research (in Cambridge, Lyon and Toulouse) he took up a lectureship at the School of Engineering in Durham. He returned to Cambridge in 2000 where he is now a member of the Energy Group. Alex’s research interests include two-phase flow (especially vapour-droplet flows), the thermodynamics of power generation, Computational Fluid Dynamics, and heat pumps.

This talk is part of the ELCF - Engineering for a Low Carbon Future (seminar series) series.
