Engineering for Good w/Hannah Mottram

On 15th December, we hosted our final Engineering for Good talk with Hannah Mottram.

Hannah’s career has encompassed teaching, energy policy, working in the civil service and now studying for a PhD. Her research looks at the technical and social challenges involved in creating off-grid energy systems in developing countries, and how communities are engaged with their development and implementation.

In this session, Hannah talks to us about rural electrification, how we assess whether an engineering project is “good” and gives us a healthy reminder that any technology exists in a wider context.

Hannah is working as part of the Energy 2050 group within Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
