Meeting the UK’s energy demand challenge
Our vision is to make the UK a leader in understanding the changes in energy demand needed for the transition to a secure and affordable low carbon energy system. This event explored the motivation behind CREDS, and the sort of innovations we might see in future.
New challenges for energy demand research
Improving energy efficiency helps deliver on all the key goals of energy policy – affordability, security and sustainability – trying to understand the future of energy without thinking closely about demand is not possible. Prof Nick Eyre explores why energy demand matters.
What we do
CREDS is a research centre established in 2018 with a vision to make the UK a leader in understanding the changes in energy demand needed for the transition to a secure and affordable, low carbon energy system.
