Career Highlights

Professor Tony Roskilly is Chair of Energy Systems at Durham University and has 30 years of experience in the design, control, and operational optimisation of energy systems and energy management.

Professor Roskilly is a Director of Durham Energy Institute, leading on Industrial and Internationalisation Strategy, and is the UK representative for the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) Joint Programmes for Energy Efficiency in Industrial Processes (EEIP) and Energy Systems Integration (ESI).

He is Associate Director of the National Centre for Energy Systems Integration and leads the research programme on infrasturcture and storage.

Professor Roskilly was formerly chair of Marine Engineering, Director of the Sir Joseph Swan Centre for Energy Research, Director of Research at Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability, and Dean of Research for the Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Engineering at Newcastle University.

Research Highlights

Professor Roskilly leads the UK hydrogen fuelled transportation network which cuts across both the energy and transport sectors. This network supports the dissemination and impact of national and international cross-disciplinary research aimed at developing a 'hydrogen for transport' economy. 

Professor Roskilly is responsible for a very large research group at Durham University which leads national research on the decarbonisation of heating and cooling. He co-ordinates national research programmes on hydrogen energy systems utilisation of solar thermal and geothermal energy, free-piston engine development, thermal energy recovery, storage and utilisation; thermal management of industrial processes; thermo-chemical energy storage and heat pump development; thermal networks; industrial CCUS and supply chains, hydrogen combustion and CHP; fuel flexibility; and energy systems integration.

Professor Roskilly has been Guest Editor for a special issue on Energy Storage in Applied Energy; Clean Transport in Applied Energy and on Thermal Energy Managment in Applied Thermal Engineering and Applied Energy.

Professor Roskilly has a H-Index of 55 and over the last 5 years has published more than 200 journal articles and received over 7500 citations.
