Energy efficiency is an essential element of meeting climate protection targets, with potential for delivering energy demand reductions across the world.
Our research addresses energy efficiency policy and delivery challenges in a European context. It explores evaluation of energy efficiency projects to learn lessons on design and programme delivery, organisational capacity and governance, and use of policy mechanisms such as innovative financing and subsidies. Our research primarily draws from experiences in Scotland, UK, Germany and Denmark.
How are devolved, regional and local authorities responding differently to goals of low energy, low carbon development and building retrofit?
A multi-criteria evaluation of 25 low carbon heat and energy efficiency projects led by local authorities across Scotland.
How are the ‘problems’ of sustainable heat and energy efficiency understood in different countries and different cities, and how can they be solved?
