Bryn Pickering

Second Year PhD Student

CDT in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment

Topic: District Energy Systems in Rapidly Developing Countries

Supervisor: Dr. Ruchi Choudhary

Advisor: Professor Peter Guthrie


Bryn is a PhD research student, working on Distributed Energy Resource (DER) systems and is supervised by Dr. Ruchi Choudhary. His research aims to update the previously developed DENO model to include capabilities for application in rapidly developing cities, with focus on Bangalore, India. This update will be incorporated directly into the open source modelling framework Calliope, from which research will be conducted into the effect of uncertain demand profiles, uncommon drivers, such as daily power supply outages, and integration of spatial information tools.


Bryn is part of the Future Infrastructure and Built Environment Centre for Doctoral Training (FIBE-CDT) program and holds an MRes from the FIBE-CDT and an MEng in Energy, Sustainability and the Environment from the University of Cambridge.
