Paul is a Senior Research Fellow at the School or Earth & Environment, University of Leeds, UK. His research addresses on an urgent global question: can we decouple energy use from economic growth to meet both climate and economic goals? He focusses on studying the interaction between energy use and society at the useful stage of the energy provision chain using exergy-based analysis, where exergy is ‘available energy’. This emerging field is producing new insights into the significant role of energy in economic growth, and in turn the decoupling problem. He co-leads the international Exergy Economics research network (https://exergyeconomics.wordpress.com/).
