About

Brendan Cleary is a PhD researcher from the Department of Civil and Building Services Engineering at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) and Dublin Energy Lab, Dublin, Ireland. His PhD research entitled ‘The Potential Economic Benefits of Wind Power and Energy Storage in Ireland’ aims to assess the economic benefits of large scale energy storage on the 2020 Irish power system, particularly enhanced wind penetration. He graduated from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) with first class honors in both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Engineering degrees in 2006. Upon graduating, he commenced work immediately as an assistant engineer with a civil engineering contractor in the West of Ireland and worked for a brief period before travelling to Australia where he worked for two different civil and marine engineering companies. He completed working and returned to TCD where he completed a one year full time MSc in civil engineering. Subsequently, he was awarded a PhD in wind energy and energy storage at DIT. More recently he was awarded the Fiosraigh Student Internship Award 2012 and was invited to the Center for Life Cycle Analysis, Columbia University for a period of 12 weeks to collaborate with fellow researchers in his research field. Brendan’s professional membership includes Chartered Engineer of Engineers Ireland and member of the Irish Wind Energy Association of Ireland. Outside of work, his interests and hobbies include playing Gaelic football, traveling and surfing.
