Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Smart grid technologies are changing the way we utilize high voltage assets, with a consequential effect on asset management practices and maintenance planning. At the same time, smart grid technologies present an opportunity for improvements in asset performance, through better materials, more sensors, and online data processing for monitoring and control. The IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS) addressed this topic through a workshop at the Electrical Insulation Conference in June 2015, held in Seattle, USA.
