Specifically CASS is:
The specific areas of research where CASS has leading expertise and experience are:
The University has a pivotal role to play as the region moves towards establishing itself as an offshore wind power world leader. Indeed, our programmes of research are already providing a focus for future technological and commercial efforts.
There is clearly a major opportunity for Hull and the Humber to position itself at the centre of this part of the renewable energy sector.
The work of the University grows increasingly important as efforts to harness tidal power continue apace. On our own doorstep, the Humber’s estuary depth and tidal flow make it one of best locations for the commercial development of tidal stream energy generation technologies in the UK.
Tank testing at the University's Total Environmental Simulator (TES) research facility, housed at The Deep, and our world-leading expertise in wave power, tidal stream power, wind turbulence, data analysis and mathematical modelling is playing a crucial role ...
The vision of scientists and researchers is to harness the enormous energy potential of the sun in order to ensure an emissions-free, environmentally-friendly and inexhaustible supply of power.
Electricity enables economic activity and, as the percentage of renewable energy increases and a low carbon economy becomes a reality, our academics are working collaboratively across departments and with other institutions and business to drive the development of photovoltaics and energy scavenging.
The capture and storage of CO2 as a medium-term measure to prevent it building up in the atmosphere, is a huge emerging worldwide industry and the University is making a valuable contribution to new developments.
The sheer magnitude of CO2 emissions means that storage above ground is not viable. Some of the best options are natural storage facilities such as old oil and gas fields in the North Sea.
With 2020 carbon emissions targets fast approaching, the University is pushing the boundaries of social sciences to contribute to how we tackle environmental issues.
People, industry and the built and natural environment have complex relationships, and unlocking these is key to achieving long-term sustainability.
Work in this sphere is multi-faceted, utilising expertise from leading academics working across faculties and partnering with specialists from all over the globe.
The University is a leading force in the international effort to reduce carbon output by examining the environmental impact of the ports, shipping and logistics industries.
World-class expertise and research at the University’s Logistics Institute are transforming the way in which organisations approach and manage logistics and supply chain management.
Exciting and fascinating developments in technology are transforming the way in which we assess and deal with pollution and waste.
In the quest for more effective approaches to meet this global challenge, academics at the University are working alongside local authorities and other organisations to find robust and more reliable systems.
