Beyond carbon: Ecosystem service implications of low energy demand pathways
Could integrating ecosystem service frameworks into energy-climate modelling give an edge to low energy demand pathways? Dan Alberga investigates.
Global need for cooling to overtake need for heating
New analysis shows that the need for cooling will overtake heating in the next decade.
A cross-country comparative analysis of low energy demand scenarios in Europe
Five independent low energy demand scenarios come to very similar conclusions about the potential for energy demand reduction in support of the net-zero target.
Online portal for visualising the impact of everyday actions on our demand for energy
Jose Luis Ramirez-Mendiola discusses the motivations and potential applications for the new Energy Demand Flexibility and the Rhythms of Everyday Life tool launched this week.
Energy demand reduction is not ‘nanny state’ governance. It’s sensible, strategic and consistent climate policy
This blog presents some key arguments for a positive policy focus on energy demand reduction, and why it’s not quite as scary as some politicians might fear.
Energy demand flexibility and the rhythms of everyday life
A new data visualisation tool provides user-friendly ways to explore how everyday activities impact energy demand.
New framework from CREDS shows UK can halve its energy demand by 2050
Our national modelling framework published in Nature Energy today shows that, in the UK, energy demand reduction is key to achieving net-zero by 2050 and requires positive social changes that will change the way we travel, consume, eat and how we heat our homes.
The urgent need to reduce our energy demand
In this blog, John Barrett talks about our paper, published in Nature Energy today, which calculates how a developed country, the UK, can rapidly reduce its energy demand without compromising the quality of life of its citizens.
