The science behind Sci-Fi

The science behind Sci-Fi

When Left Bank Pictures (producers of The Crown and Lost) were looking for someone to give their Sci-fi adventure, ORIGIN, a touch of realism - they called upon Imperial Consultants. Thanks to his previous work with filmmakers, writers and artists, they were introduced to Dr Roberto Trotta, a theoretical cosmologist renowned for taking on the unusual - and gifted in translating ‘science-speak’ into layman’s terms. read more

Gravity-based energy storage could prove a cheaper option

Gravity-based energy storage could prove a cheaper option

Imperial researchers predict that gravity-fed energy storage systems may provide long-term savings - and analysis suggests that technology from Gravitricity is well suited to provide grid balancing and rapid frequency response services to grid operators. read more

Informing the debate on Britain’s electricity system

Informing the debate on Britain’s electricity system

The electricity sector is currently undergoing unprecedented changes, including obligations to decarbonise and pressure to keep bills down. With old coal being driven off the system, new nuclear given the go-ahead, prices reaching new highs and lows, and clean energy overtaking fossil fuels for the first time, there is an increasing need for a strong evidence base and robust analysis. read more
