Gala fun at Lancaster University

Representatives of the 6 End Use Energy Demand (EUED) Research Centres funded by the UK Energy Research programme gathered in Lancaster to share research learning. I was there as part of the DEMAND centre, which was hosting the event. There’s a report of the event here and materials including presentations are here.

It was intriguing to hear the very different approaches taken by centres – not just in terms of disciplinary background or framing of problems, but also scales of ambition and endeavour. An effective way of getting people confronting and overcoming key differences of approach was through putting people together from different centres and groups discussing abstracts from each other’s journal articles arising from their centre’s work.
