This talk will outline the key research findings from the work of the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) over the last 5 years, focusing on the central role that changing the ways we use energy needs to play in the shift to a zero-carbon energy system, and the associated benefits and challenges.
Speaker: Nick Eyre is Professor of Energy and Climate Policy, and Senior Research Fellow in Energy at the ECI, and a Supernumerary Fellow of Oriel College.
Nick was Programme Leader for Energy in the ECI from 2007 to 2017.
