CREDS in Collaboration: Scotland

We would like to invite you to this event, jointly hosted between CREDS and ClimateXChange in Edinburgh on Thursday 30 March, 2023, 09.30am to 13.00pm, followed by lunch.

This event will showcase the latest research findings on energy demand reduction, flexibility and the use of decarbonised energy that are most relevant to Scotland.

A broad range of topics will be discussed with the aim of enhancing existing collaborations and kick-starting new collaborations between researchers and stakeholders interested in using these results.

The agenda is below:

09.30 Registration, coffee (Hybrid & login online)

10.00 Welcome and CREDS Key Findings - Nick Eyre, University of Oxford

10.15 The role of place in decarbonisation pathways for transport – Greg Marsden, Uni Leeds

10.35 Modelling of transport and heat decarbonisation pathways - Connor McGarry, Uni Strathclyde

10.50 Positive Low Energy Futures scenarios in Scotland – John Barrett, Uni Leeds

11.05 Lived experience of double energy vulnerability in Scotland - Mari Martiskainen, University of Sussex

11.20 Coffee break

11.40 Overview of current related CXC research - Dr. Alex Hilliam, Uni of Edinburgh

12.00 Understanding how local supply chains can deliver retrofit at scale – Faye Wade and Yujia Han, Uni Edinburgh

12.15 Local Energy Systems – the road less travelled and how to get there -Jan Webb, Uni Edinburgh

12.30 Covid changed the world – but also energy use in homes? – Gesche Huebner, UCL

12.45 Building Energy Demand Reduction: Whose Performance Gap? – Tadj Oreszczyn, UCL

12.00 Closing remarks (Nick Eyre)

13.05 Networking and Lunch

14.00 Options to have side meetings

This will be an in-person and online event (online - you will be able to listen to the talks but interaction may be limited) designed for researchers, Local Authorities, NGOs, consultants and policy-makers including Scottish Government.

CREDS is the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions and is a research programme funded by UK Research and Innovation. We aim to understand the role of energy demand change in accelerating the transition to a zero-carbon energy system, including the technical, social and governance challenges of demand reduction, flexible demand and use of decarbonised energy.

ClimateXchange is Scotland’s Centre of expertise connecting climate change research and policy. Funded by the Scottish Government, they commission research and analysis to support the Scottish Government as it develops policies on adapting to the changing climate and transitioning to net-zero. They respond to questions and requests for evidence, and identify upcoming evidence needs.
