From shock to change: Energy use in a net-zero UK – lessons from lockdown
Energy use changed dramatically during the Covid-19 pandemic – what does that tell us about how to reduce energy demand and deliver a zero carbon energy system?
Making mass retrofit a reality: A webinar from CREDS and Buildings & Cities
This CREDS and Building & Cities webinar (20 Oct at 2pm) addresses how retrofits for domestic buildings can be delivered at scale to meet climate targets.
The UK can more than halve its energy demand by 2050 and improve quality of life
First-of-its-kind research from CREDS shows that it will be difficult and expensive to meet the UK’s net-zero target without serious measures to reduce demand for energy.
CREDS interdisciplinary energy demand studentships call Q&A
Following the webinar on our new studentships call, the questions asked have been answered and the presentation made available to download.
Re-thinking the zero carbon energy transition
Nick Eyre explores a new way of thinking about the energy transition, as well as showing how it will lead to major opportunities for energy efficiency.
The contribution energy demand reduction could make to tackling the climate emergency
Our upcoming report, The role of energy demand reduction in achieving net-zero in the UK, will be launched on 6 October. In this blog, Sam Betts-Davies and John Barrett point to one of the key findings that the UK could reduce its energy demand by 52% by 2050 relative to 2020 levels.
Generating Mobility Futures
Greg Marsden gives a taster on our upcoming new report which addresses the issue of how much energy we need for everyday life and what the carbon implications of different futures might be.
Creating a sustainable Future: online event from New Scientist
CREDS’ Director, Nick Eyre, will be speaking at the New Scientist event – Creating a Sustainable Future on 25 September 2021.
The role of energy demand reduction in achieving net-zero in the UK
This event launches our new report which outlines positive low energy futures for the UK that achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
Who needs flexibility anyway?
Can variable pricing deliver flexibility? Ben Anderson and Tom Rushby explore whether the consumer needs to be engaged in system flexibility.
Long run trends in ICT demand and its impact on energy consumption
The digitalisation of society has accelerated during the coronavirus pandemic, but this trend has been underway for decades. Roger Fouquet explores the increase in communication consumption.
