Biography: A mechanical engineer by training, Dr Tom Rogers has been based in CMP at The University of the West Indies since December 2009. He teaches renewable energy resources and the fundamentals of PV physics and is the programme coordinator for the Department’s MSc in Renewable Energy Management. He is technical advisor to the DIREKT project and is assisting in the establishment of a renewable energy laboratory at the campus. He was the energy consultant to the Government of Barbados and UNEP “Green Economy Scoping Study”, undertaken by staff from across the University.

Prior to this role he was a member of the research team with the University of Nottingham’s prestigious Creative Energy Homes project, a unique showcase of innovative state-of-the-art energy efficient homes of the future. His PhD research was focused on the 'Siting and Performance Assessment of Micro Wind Turbines in the Built Environment’. He has an MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Technology from the internationally acclaimed Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology at the University of Loughborough.
