There is no energy efficiency ‘silver bullet’ says CIED Research Fellow to Commons Public Accounts Committee
Jan Rosenow,a Senior Research Fellow at CIED, called the Green Deal a “failure” when giving evidence at the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee
Policy makers must harness the power of ordinary people if society is to transition to low-carbon energy, argues a leading technology historian.
Governments and researchers need to remember that the most sophisticated endeavours won’t work if they’re not adopted.
CIED Senior Research Fellow, Dr Jan Rosenow, will be an expert witness to a House of Commons’ Public Accounts Committee inquiry into the Green Deal.
Benjamin Sovacool, Director of the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand, presented research to the Westminster Energy, Environment& Transport Forum.
The worldwide reliance on burning fossil fuels to create energy could be phased out in a decade, according to a major energy think tank in the UK.
Benjamin Sovacool is one of three experts giving their views on the future of energy generation and use in relation to UN Sustainable Goal Number 7.
Research by CIED has helped to inform the recently published UK Energy and Climate Change Committee report on Home Energy Efficiency.
New CIED research suggests energy service contracts are growing rapidly in the UK public sector, delivering substantial energy and carbon savings.
