Philip Peck is Associate Professor at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE), Lund University, Sweden. With more than 20 years of international experience, Philip worked in civil engineering and mining for nearly a decade prior to entering academia.
Philip’s research focuses upon the technical, socio-economic, environmental, policy, and deployment parameters of new technology systems. He is particularly interested in how differing levels of social and political understanding and acceptance of new industrial systems affects their progress – and the success of the organisations implementing them. Ongoing and recent projects include: analysis of competing technology platforms in advanced biofuel and biorefinery fields, assessment and comparison of policy-frames for renewable transportation fuels, and the development of environmental policy and pollution release and transfer registers in China. He teaches technology related topics, corporate environmental management and academic paper writing.
Philip combines research work at the interface of technological, social and management systems with delivery of policy-related and technical support to intergovernmental organisations. He has published in energy, mining and management journals and has authored several UN reports/books addressing best-practice environmental performance and policy-making for the mining and metals sector. Dr Peck has been called upon regularly over the past decade to support intergovernmental organisations such as UNEP and UNDP as an environment and extractive industries specialist. Assignments have addressed environmental improvement of the base metals mining sector, and risk management for environmental hotspots, particularly in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe.
Philip' first degree was in Civil Engineering, he also has an MSc. (Env. Mgt. & Policy) from the IIIEE, and a PhD (Eng.) from Lund University.
Strategies for low-carbon infrastructures
Tempus Mansur - Master on sustainable development and renewable energy
The main objective of MANSUR project is to provide a high quality education for Jordanian students in the key aspects of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (REEE), therefore enabling them to take responsible, creative, challenging and stimulating posts in industry or research in this exciting field. The additional specific objectives of the project are to promote and publicize new REEE technologies in the country and considerably increase the scale of REEE technologies application in public and private buildings in accordance with the Jordanian National Energy Plan.
