Iain Staffell is a multi-disciplinary scientist working within the Department of Management at Imperial College Business School. He holds degrees in Physics (BSc), the Physics and Technology of Nuclear Reactors (MSc), and Chemical Engineering (PhD). He started his career at the University of Birmingham, overseeing the UK's first field trials of hydrogen home heating systems and fuel cell vehicle fleets. He then moved into economics, modelling the impact that investment in wind power will have on electricity systems, and the solutions that technology and markets can offer.
His research has focussed on the technical and economic aspects of low carbon energy. His current research is investigating the potential of an interconnected super-grid and smart energy storage systems to reduce the cost and carbon emissions of generating electricity across Europe.
