Mathematician helps energy firm with its Green credentials

Dr John Moriarty, senior lecturer in probability and statistics.

A pioneering energy company is demonstrating its ‘green’ credentials with the help of maths researchers from The University of Manchester. Upside Energy enables small business and householders to benefit from cheaper electricity generated off-peak by a range of devices. They are working with Dr John Moriarty from the School of Maths, who has developed predictive models of O2 intensity of electricity generation.

The collaboration has been supported with an EPSRC-funded post-doctoral researcher and has been nominated for the Rushlight Awards which showcase sustainable innovations. Colleagues from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering are also set to work with Upside to develop its service to electric vehicles and large ‘grid-scale’ electrical batteries.
