Getting from here to there

To meet net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the UK will need to understand the economic drivers and technological challenges of net zero energy systems. This session discussed the topic of transformation in energy systems to achieve a net zero future.

Fuel poverty

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) estimates that fuel poverty affects 2.53 million households in England (2017) using the Low Income High Costs definition. BEIS also found that, when looking at the composition of these households, the highest proportion in fuel poverty was single parents and couples with children (25.4%).

Materials

Energy efficiency measures and energy generation technologies will play a central role in decarbonising homes and businesses. Materials used in both the residential and business sectors can be part of these energy efficiency and energy generation solutions.

Speakers

Greening the University

In 2018, we became one of the first universities to officially sign the government’s Emissions Reduction Pledge, committing to a 30% reduction in Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon dioxide emissions for a 2009/10 baseline by 2020/21. This session discussed progress in the de-carbonisation of activities for universities.
