Anna Korre is Professor of Environmental Engineering and Co-Director Energy Futures Lab at Imperial, the College’s energy institute. Anna also heads the Minerals Energy and Environmental Engineering Research Group, developing engineering solutions to the supply of clean energy, the sustainable production of natural resources, and mitigating environmental impacts and risks. Her research focus is in the areas of modelling risk and uncertainty and the environmental and life cycle assessment of engineering systems. She has led and participated in numerous industry, UKRI, BEIS, The Crown Estate and EU funded projects developing engineering tools to assess the impacts of the minerals and energy industries in terms of operational performance, environmental footprint and cost.
Prof Marcelle McManus is a professor in Energy and Environmental Engineering with expertise in Life Cycle Assessment of bio-based systems and has particular interest in using LCA to help minimise the impact of emerging and existing systems. She is a Research Director in the Industrial Decarbonisation Research and Innovation Centre (IDRIC). She has won awards for her work e.g. she was awarded the IMechE George Stephenson Medal (2008) for her work on LCA of wind power, won “Most Inspirational Woman” in the West Woman Awards, 2019, and won the Academic Award in the 2020 FDM Everywoman in STEM Awards.
Dr. Benjamin K. Sovacool is Professor of Earth and Environment at Boston University in the United States, as well as Professor of Energy Policy at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex Business School in the United Kingdom. He is also University Distinguished Professor of Business & Social Sciences at Aarhus University in Denmark. Professor Sovacool works as a researcher and consultant on issues pertaining to energy policy, energy justice, energy security, climate change mitigation, and climate change adaptation. More specifically, his research focuses on renewable energy and energy efficiency, the politics of large-scale energy infrastructure, the ethics and morality of energy decisions, designing public policy to improve energy security and access to electricity, and building adaptive capacity to the consequences of climate change.
