SERG’s Dr Ben Anderson has just started the outgoing phase of his EU H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie scheme-funded SPATIALEC Global Fellowship.
Based at the University of Otago’s Centre for Sustainability, Ben will initially be working on combining time use and electricity monitoring data from the New Zealand GREEN Grid  project with  New Zealand Census data to produce local area models of electricity demand profiles.
He will also be looking to develop a stronger relationship between the Universities of Otago and Southampton based on notably similar environmental contexts including port and road infrastructures, air quality concerns and the desire for regional energy resilience.
