The Centre of Sustainable Technologies (CST) based at the University of Ulster (UU) is an inter-disciplinary research centre challenging many aspects of sustainability associated with the built environment. Typically consisting of over 30 academics and researchers, it seeks to undertake ground-breaking activities in such areas as architecture, building energy efficiency, construction and renewable energy. For renewable energy systems CST is currently focused on: energy storage, development of solar energy conversion systems, computer modelling of renewable energy systems, and the development of biomass and bioenergy systems. CST has extensive laboratory and computer simulation facilities available for numerical and experimental analysis of energy systems. It has expertise in the participation and management of EU funded projects, under FP5 and FP6 including CRAFT R410a for Heat Pumps, PAMELA, ELEVAG and DUPPEG (all coordination and research), IDECONTE and RAMseS. Thus the wealth of experience contained within CST will be invaluable in the realisation of the MERITS proposal.
