Energy in the City – DEMAND Summer School
The call for applications is open for the DEMAND Summer School at the University of Leeds, from 18 – 20 July on Energy Demand and Mobility.
The event focusses on energy demand and mobility in the city. Cities are important sites of energy demand, distinctive in terms of density and diversity, and important places in which energy demand reduction policies are made and played out.
But what does this mean for the infrastructures cities depend on and bring about? And what do we really understand about urban patterns of energy demand and mobility? How are they generated in relation to particular locations and activities, such as office work, retail, healthcare or higher education? And what insights can ‘the city’, as a scale and field of investigation, offer into how and why these patterns are changing?
The call is open to PhD students, early career researchers and academics from all disciplines. Practitioners dealing with energy demand and mobility are also invited to apply. There are 30 places with up to 10 available for non-UK based students.
