Call for applications: ENERGY IN THE CITY: A Summer School on Energy Demand and Mobility

By Robert Lyons on 15th February 2017

The 2017 DEMAND Summer School, at the University of Leeds from 18-20 July 2017, will focus on Energy in the City. Cities are important sites of energy demand, distinctive in terms of density and diversity, and important places in which energy demand reduction policies are made and played out. But what does this mean for the infrastructures cities depend on and bring about? And what do we really understand about urban patterns of energy demand and mobility? How are they generated in relation to particular locations and activities, such as office work, retail, healthcare or higher education? And what insights can ‘the city’, as a scale and field of investigation, offer into how and why these patterns are changing? Deadline for applications is 22 March.
