Craig Jones is a Research Officer at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom. He works in the Department of Mechanical Engineering where he is part of the Sustainable Energy Research Team (SERT).
After achieving a First Class Honours (MEng) degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath Craig stayed at the university to work on the ‘Building Market Transformation (BMT)’ project. The research for BMT involved the study of embodied energy and embodied carbon for building materials. As a result of this research Craig created and still maintains a database of embodied energy and embodied carbon for hundreds of building materials. This is known as the ‘Inventory of Carbon and Energy (ICE)’. Since its release ICE has experienced strong interest and has now been distributed to thousands of professionals worldwide. He has applied ICE in house, using it to analyse the embodied energy and embodied carbon of new UK buildings.
Craig is currently employed on the ‘Transition Pathways to a Low Carbon Economy’ project that aims to undertake socially and scientifically engaged research into innovative technologies, policies and practices leading towards a low carbon energy system. Craig will be using a toolkit of energy analysis, environmental life-cycle assessment, carbon footprinting and embodied energy and embodied carbon assessments to assess future electricity technologies and ‘Pathways’. Craig also maintains an interest in micro-generation technologies.
