Jointly hosted by CREDS and ClimateXChange
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, University of Leeds
10.35 Translating heating and transport energy demand futures into electricity system impacts’ - Connor McGarry, University of Strathclyde
10.50 Positive Low Energy Futures scenarios in Scotland – John Barrett, University of Leeds
11.05 Lived experience of double energy vulnerability in Scotland - Kirsten Jenkins, University of Edinburgh
11.20 Coffee break
11.40 Overview of current related CXC research - Alex Hilliam, University of Edinburgh

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.
