Open Access research that is improving renewable energy technology...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers across the departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE), and Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME), all of which are leading research into aspects of wind energy, the control of wind turbines and wind farms.

Researchers at EEE are examining the dynamic analysis of turbines, their modelling and simulation, control system design and their optimisation, along with resource assessment and condition monitoring issues. The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within MAE is producing research to achieve significant levels of energy efficiency using new and renewable energy systems. Meanwhile, researchers at NAOME are supporting the development of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current energy to assist in the provision of diverse energy sources and economic growth in the renewable energy sector.

Abstract

Over the past decade energy security has come to prominence within global politics. While European attention was focused on the fallout from the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, energy security 'stole its way onto the international agenda' (p. 1). In this book Richard Youngs examines the foreign policy response to energy security from the European Union and its member states during the mid-2000s. Grounded in the theoretical literature on EU foreign policy, this book is well researched, involving in-depth analysis of a complicated policy area that is currently in a great deal of flux.
