Student secures sustainable energy scholarship

A student at Loughborough University has been awarded a scholarship aimed at educating people from developing countries about renewable energy systems.

Mr Junior Osei-Agyemang from Ghana has been given an e7 Sustainable Energy Development Scholarship. The e7 is an organisation of leading electricity companies from the G8 nations that wish to play an active role in protecting the global environment and to promote the efficient generation and use of electricity. Its scholarship programme has been established to support outstanding students in advanced studies of sustainable energy development, and is specifically for people from developing countries and economies in transition.

The scholarship will enable Junior Osei-Agyemang to study for an MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Technology at the University’s Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST), based in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

Simon Watson, director of Renewable Energy Teaching Programmes at CREST said: “We are delighted that one of our students has been awarded this scholarship. It will enable him to learn about renewable energy systems, and then to use this knowledge to improve the use and generation of energy in his home country.”
