Professor Malcolm McCulloch
Co-Director, Oxford Martin Programme on Integrating Renewable Energy
Associate Professor in Engineering Science
Malcolm McCulloch is Associate Professor in Engineering Science and Group Leader of the Energy and Power Group at the University of Oxford.
His interests are in the area related to the domestic energy sector, development of user centric demand side management technologies, useful information to enable behaviour change. Previous work lead the the spin-out Intelligent Sustainable Energy, of which Malcolm is both a founder and non-executive director. This has merged to form Navetas Energy Management.
In the transport sector, research is ongoing in developing power trains for electric vehicles. A successful project was that of the Morgan LifeCar – the first ever Hydrogen sports car. This project lead to the development of high-efficiency low-weight motors using new materials – the yokeless and segmented armature motor. This has resulted in the Oxford spin-out company Oxford Yasa Motors, of which Malcolm is a founder. He is extending the work of ICERT to create an Integrated Transport Network for Oxford.
In renewable generation, novel lightweight low speed direct coupled generators are being developed along with a transverse axis tidal turbine, leading to the spinout of Kepler Energy, of which Malcolm is also a founder and non-executive director.
In Energy for Development, he is developing technologies that leverage advanced intelligence to provide cost effective and nano and micro grid solutions that provide a scalable pathway to distributed electrification.
Malcolm McCulloch was Co-Director of the Institute for Carbon and Energy Reduction in Transport, a member of the Oxford Martin School from 2008-2013.
