20 September, 2019

Reading time: 1 minute

As CREDS celebrates one year since our launch, we announce a new £1.25m challenge project – FAIR. We also unveil, in support of the Shifting the focus report launched in July, a series of short videos with chapter authors and a highlights document, which offers a quick look at the report.

Today is the one-year anniversary of the launch of CREDS and our vision to transform the UK energy demand sector.

It has been an active and positive first year with many highlights, including the launch of our first major report Shifting the focus: energy demand in a net-zero carbon UK, our Visitors: International Programme and our Early Career Researchers Funding Call.

As we turn one, we are delighted to announce our new £1.25 million challenge project – FAIR – which will explore the causes and links between fuel poverty and transport poverty in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It will make policy recommendations designed to limit the impacts of poverty in the transition to a more sustainable future.

In support of our Shifting the focus: energy demand in a net-zero carbon UK report, we are also unveiling a series of short videos with chapter authors and a highlights document, which offers a quick look at the report (20 pages, 4 MB).
