Visitors: International Programme (VIP)

The objectives of CREDS relate to energy use in the UK, but we are interested in learning from international experience.

Therefore, we periodically invite international researchers, policy makers and business or industry people working in the field of energy demand to visit CREDS as visiting fellows or on secondment. We are currently closed for applications but will have another call in 2020.

The purpose of these visits is to:

  • Ensure we benefit from international research to gain lessons for the UK
  • Develop collaborative research to produce outputs targeted at international audiences
  • Engage in joint dissemination that will impact on international debates
  • Build networks and ongoing relationships that will support energy demand research communities in the UK and internationally.

If you have any questions about the Visitors: International Programme, please contact Dr Sarah Higginson

Decarbonising local transport – help for local authorities

CREDS supported recent work with the Local Government Association (LGA) and DecarboN8 to help local councils in England plan their transport decarbonisation strategies. Seven briefing notes written for the LGA, on subjects from bus use to parking policies to setting achievable carbon goals, are designed to provide guidance, examples and recommendations on the best ways to reach net zero carbon.
