The Sustainable Electronic Technologies (SET) group aims to address aspects of sustainability which relate to electricity, electronics and communication. Electronic devices (computers, mobile phones, data centres) use a significant amount of the world's total energy consumption. Low power and efficient computing and electricity from renewable resources is required to allow electronic devices to have a continued positive impact on society.
