Home | Projects | Knowledge Transfer Partnership: Digitalisation for Decarbonisation

The Crichton Trust and The University of Glasgow entered into a Knowledge Transfer Partnership in 2022 to review energy systems and processes at The Crichton in Dumfries.

Sonam Norbu, originally from Bhutan, is employed by the partners as the KTP Research Associate and is tasked with developing a dynamic energy audit model of The Crichton. Sonam is also in the final stages of completing his PhD at Herriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

In his role, Sonam will focus on identifying realistic decarbonisation pathways to net-zero and will explore implementation of various multi-vectoral smart local energy systems for The Crichton.

Importantly, findings from the research will also support the development and implementation of a Sustainability Roadmap for The Crichton.
