Paul has recently joined CREST to work on thermal storage for i-STUTE (interdisciplinary centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy). His focus presently is on thermal storage for retrofit to UK existing housing stock.

Paul has worked on various early-stage low carbon energy technologies for several different organisations, most recently Rolls-Royce plc, where he worked at the Strategic Research Centre. At Rolls-Royce he worked on off-shore wind turbine, concentrating solar, tidal turbine and wavefoil ship propulsion projects. Previously he was involved with a spin-out from Durham University after he invented a lightweight structural design for large diameter electrical generators.
