This course offers training to meet the needs of both academic research and wider industrial stakeholders, providing hands-on experience of operating pilot scale tests at the Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC), and formerly, at the national UKCCSRC-PACT facilities, and knowledge of simulation of advanced carbon capture technologies for the power generation industry. The course covers different capture technologies and relevant experimental facilities.
TERC is a new, unique testing and innovation facility for research into low and zero-carbon energy generation. Part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the centre focuses on working with local, national and international industry partners to research and scale-up low-carbon and renewable energy solutions. The facility hosts a wide range of state-of-the-art technologies with full capability to test, optimise and demonstrate low-carbon technologies at scale, and has particular specialisms in sustainable fuels, green hydrogen, carbon capture and storage and biomass solutions. TERC is part of the University of Sheffield’s Energy Institute and based in the University’s Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District.
