Place-based business models for net-zero
We’re exploring how digital living & working imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic can inform place-based business models and energy demand reduction.
This project will investigate opportunities for using digital twins in the built environment and their use in transforming energy use and progress towards net-zero.
Social entrepreneurship at the grid edge
This project provides an evidence base of how community groups are responding to opportunities for Community Led DSR and Collective Self-Consumption.
Telecommuting and UK energy demand
UK National Travel Survey data allows us to examine not only the travel behaviours of telecommuters, but also travel impacts of telecommuting on their whole households.
Impact of 5G technology
This project will review evidence on 5G’s energy use, then construct scenarios where 5G has both positive and negative impacts on energy consumption.
Business models in the digital society
This project looks at ‘consumer-centric’ business models which allow users to purchase high-quality energy services.
ICT energy consumption evidence
This project examines the current state of knowledge of the impact of ICTs on energy consumption.
Historical impacts of ICTs
This project estimates the historical relationship between energy demand and investment in ICT at sector and economy-wide levels.
Diffusion of smart meters
This project is investigating the drivers and obstacles for rolling out smart meters.
Expectations for automated vehicles (AVs)
This project explores the expectations regarding the potential energy-saving benefits of autonomous vehicles.
User perceptions of smart homes
This project explores user perceptions and acceptance of smart home technologies.
Anticipating future impacts of ICTs on energy consumption
This project explores the potential future impacts of ICTs on UK energy consumption to assess the potential for ICTs to drive future improvements in energy productivity.
