Postdoctoral Fellowship Solar Energy Technology (1 post)
This role is aimed at development and characterization of solar cell materials for solar energy applications. Other areas of interest will be aimed at advancing knowledge of perovskite solar cells within the research group. The research fellow will also be expected to explore materials characterization technique using correlative microscopy.
The Residential Energy Consumption project is focused around the collection of residential energy consumption data. This data is based upon the types of electrical appliances and their end-use by individuals within the different Living Standard Measure (LSM) across South Africa. The appliance end-use data utilised within the Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning (LEAP) model for analysis, enabling policy makers with a better understanding and visibility of residential energy side. Furthermore, this project supports aspects of the review of the National Energy Efficiency Strategy (NEES) targets, together with the National Standards & Labelling Programme (S&L) impact assessment.
