Energy and climate change policies presage far-reaching societal transformations, but limited progress has been made in relation to low energy, low carbon heat.

The workshop brought together speakers from different disciplines, with the aim of improving understanding of opportunities and constraints.

The workshop focused on what is, and isn’t, being done by different actors and organisations, in state, market and civil society domains, and why. Speakers considered what needs to change in order to improve prospects for sustainable heat provisions, and what is missing from, or defective in, existing policy approaches and scenarios.

The workshop took place at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, University of Edinburgh.
