MSc student wins award for his thesis, which will further the field of smart metering!

Any Masters student will tell you how challenging it is to complete their thesis. It’s a lot of hard work, and hopefully, somewhere down the line, you can do some good for humanity. It’s not often that your work has impact from day one and receives award-winning recognition! We caught up with MSc in Environomical Pathways for Sustainable Energy Systems student, Christoforos Meno-Aikateriniadis, who now works at AFRY Management Consulting in Oxford (UK) in the field of energy markets. He tells us about his project: “It was in collaboration with one of Europe’s largest utilities providing clean electricity and heat, Vattenfall. It was part of a larger project within the departments of R&D and Electrical Distribution – with crucial results for internal development and analysis in the innovative area of fault identification/prediction with smart meter data. While challenging and demanding, it was motivating to know that from the first moment the project will have an impact. Having it win 3rd place in the Vattenfall Energy Awards was icing on the cake!”
