Renewable Engine Student Acts as Provocateur in Eco-Design debate
Charlie Farrell, final year Renewable Engine student with South West College & QUB, was invited by the Scottish Ecological Design Society (SEDA) to deliver a talk as part of their Solar Seminars on “Embodied Carbon, Life Cycle Analysis, Recycling”. The special event took place on 17th May 2021.
SEDA are an organisation involved in promotion of sustainable/ecological “eco” design and architecture and their Solar Seminar drew in experts from the field, policymakers and participants from industry and academia. The talks focused on energy consumption, embodied energy and eco-design (products created considering their environmental impact during their entire life); with Charlie’s research experience being closely aligned to these areas.
Charlie’s expertise and publication record in solar PV module recycling, eco-design and circular economy has resulted in him gaining recognition from experts and organisations such as SEDA – which is a testament to the quality of research that has been produced through the Renewable Engine project.
