ClimateXChange and the University of Edinburgh are hosting this interdisciplinary event to bring together researchers, policymakers and practitioners to take stock of the current state of practice and knowledge of local energy systems in the UK, and look forward to the key challenges and opportunities for the future.

The event will address the following three questions:

Is Progress an illusion?  Is Technology the problem or the solution? What are the practical alternatives?  Such questions were asked 40 years ago in the pioneering book, Radical Technology. This conference will ask them again with even more urgency.

A new paper by Caroline Wilson and Melissa Marselle, published in Energy Research & Social Science, examines the Behaviour Change Wheel (BCW) as a possible aid to developing behaviour change to reduce energy consumption.  The researchers mapped components of behaviour change programmes, as identified in four EU guidance documents, onto the BCW.  Most components were readily coded to the BCW framework, with energy price being the only main component under-represented.  Based on this work, they believe that the BCW offers a useful aid for the systematic design and development aro

A major review, Taking the Temperature: A Review of Energy Efficiency and Fuel Poverty Schemes in Scotland, conducted for Citizens Advice Scotland by CAG Consultants, Glasgow Caledonian University, and National Energy Action, has called for independent monitoring and evaluation to be built into all future energy efficiency and fuel poverty schemes.

This new report is a result of a six month research project run by Ymlaen Ceredigion, in partnership with Ceredigion County Council and Aberystwyth University, exploring how home energy coaching operates, what effect it can have and how those effects can be measured. 

Low carbon network infrastructure

Innovation and disruption are characteristics of current energy industries and markets, nationally and globally. Every part of the energy sector is experiencing rapid change and high rates of innovation, with some examples of managed transitions, but often with disruptive transformation driven by external factors. 

A paper by Laurie Laybourn-Langton for IPPR looks at two developments in the UK energy system.

The first is the rise of local, community and cooperatively owned energy projects that produce renewable electricity, in some cases also supporting attempts to tack fuel poverty and provide other social and economic functions.
