Workshop – Energy Demand Research Challenges

Energy Demand Research Challenges Workshop

Tuesday 13th March, London

Workshop run by Professor Nick Eyre, Research Councils’ UK Energy Demand Research Champion. The EPSRC recently funded Professor Nick Eyre as the Energy Demand Research Champion for the Research Councils’ Energy Programme. The aim of the Champion grant is to develop a proposal for a new UK Centre for Research on Energy Demand (UKCRED), starting in April 2018 and building on the work of the existing six End Use Energy Demand (EUED) Centres.

Applications are invited to participate in a workshop to discuss the challenges that the energy demand research community should be investigating in the next 5 years.

The workshop follows on from a discussion on research challenges that took place last September as part of the consultation on the future of whole systems, energy demand research in the UK. The aim of this workshop will be to formulate some overarching research questions for key challenges that could be funded either within a new, whole systems research programme and/or separately by the Research Councils.

The workshop will take place from 10.30am – 3pm on Tuesday 13th March at the Woburn House Conference Centre in London, just a short walk from Euston and Kings Cross stations.  Coffee will be served from 10am
