From 1992 to 2008, Nick Jenkins was at the University of Manchester (UMIST). In March 2008 he moved to Cardiff University where he is now Professor of Renewable Energy. His previous career included 14 years industrial experience, of which 5 years were in developing countries. His final position in industry was as Projects Director for Wind Energy Group, a manufacturer of large wind turbines. While at the University he has developed teaching and research activities in both electrical power engineering and renewable energy.  He is a Distinguished Member of CIGRE, and a Fellow of the IET, IEEE, Royal Academy of Engineering and the Learned Society of Wales. From 2009-11 he was the Shimizu Visiting Professor to the Atmosphere and Energy Program at Stanford University.

He is presently the Leader of the Centre for Integrated Energy Generation and Supply Research Group and the Energy and Environment Theme.


He is co-author of: Renewable Energy Engineering, Cambridge University Press (2017), Smart Elecrricity Distribution Networks CRC Press (2017), Electric Power Systems 5th Edition, Wiley (2013) Smart Grids, Technologies and Applications, Wiley (2012) Wind Energy Handbook 2nd Edition, Wiley (2011) Distributed Generation, IET (2010) Wind Energy Generation Modelling and Control, Wiley (2009)
