Professor gives view on Wales' Low Carbon Research Institute

Professor gives view on Wales' Low Carbon Research Institute
The new Low Carbon Research Institute in Wales will establish "the country as a real force in the field of international energy research", according to a professor from Cardiff University.

Speaking after the Welsh assembly government announced £5.1 million in funding for the project, head of the Welsh School of Architecture, Professor Phil Jones, argued that the institute will be "fundamental to achieving a low carbon future".

He added: "Energy demand and supply is vital to Wales' future and the nation has great potential to exploit a range of low carbon technologies."

The institute will co-ordinate research on how low carbon technologies can be effectively integrated into Welsh energy policy to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. It will also help develop a highly skilled Welsh workforce familiar with environmental issues and build links with industry.

The institute will be led by the Welsh School of Architecture, with the School of Engineering, Bangor University School of Chemistry, Swansea School of Engineering and Glamorgan University's Sustainable Environment Research Centre as the other research partners.
