CET researchers awarded Solar Energy Journal Best Paper 2021

Congratulations to Dr Matthew Emes, Dr Azadeh Jafari and Prof Maziar Arjomandi, from the School of Mechanical Engineering, for receiving the Solar Energy Journal Best Paper Award 2021 from the International Solar Energy Society (ISES).

The biennial award was announced at the ISES Solar World Congress on Thursday October 28 (US Eastern time). The virtual event, which was held from October 25-29, 2021, connected the scientific and research community with renewable energy decision-makers, developers, financers, and practitioners to highlight key technology advances that are taking place in the field of solar and renewable energy.

Solar Energy, the official journal of the International Solar Energy Society, is devoted exclusively to the science and technology of solar energy applications.

The Society was founded in 1954 and is now incorporated as a non-profit educational and scientific institution. With participation encompassing 100 countries, ISES serves as a centre for information on research and development in solar energy utilisation. Through its publications and its sponsorship of technical conferences, the Society provides a world forum for the active consideration of solar energy.
