City students’ energy solution

Have your say

A TEAM of undergraduates from Sheffield University reached the final of an international competition after being challenged to come up with an innovative energy solution for future generations.

Team Hyperion is in the final of the 2012 RWE npower Energy Challenge which asks how energy companies can respond to climate change, maintain a secure supply and more importantly ensure that energy bills are affordable.

The Sheffield team came up with the innovative idea of using newly emerging technologies, one of which is using carbon dioxide as an alternative energy source.
