Trends in transformation sector efficiency: A global view

Leonardo Paoli

University of Cambridge

A second-year PhD student at the University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering. Leonardo holds an MEng (Hons) degree from Imperial College in mechanical engineering. Leonardo’s PhD supervisor is Dr Jonathan M Cullen. His research focuses on the characterisation of energy conversion efficiency from primary to useful energy.


The transformation sector converts primary energy, such as natural gas and crude oil, into final energy, such as electricity and refined fuels. In doing so, a substantial loss is incurred – more than a third of the total... [ view full abstract ]
