Transforming Energy Demand

Dr Brenda Boardman

Brenda Board, Emeritus Research Fellow, Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford

Has your electricity bill gone down in the last few years? Do you know why? This talk explains some of the reasons and ponders the effect of Brexit.


Brenda Boardman’s main research focus is on energy efficiency and the way that energy is used in British homes, particularly by low-income households, i.e. fuel poverty. She considers the economic, social and technical aspects of the subject and her work has a strong policy emphasis. She is widely viewed as one of the most experienced in her field and was awarded an MBE in 1998 for her work on energy efficiency and received the Energy Institute’s Melchett Medal in the same year.
