UKERC Annual Conference 2019: Local Energy Systems in National and International Contexts

9:00 AM 24 April - 5:00 PM 25 April 2019
St Anne's College, Oxford, United Kingdom

 
Conference theme

The role of localised generation and supply of energy is attracting considerable interest both in the UK and internationally.

Local energy systems are a key focus in the UK’s Industrial Strategy and the Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme. They are considered to facilitate faster decarbonisation than large scale systems, while providing welfare and economic benefits alongside industrial renewal.  Localised systems have also been highlighted by the devolved administrations and local authorities as providing services that are well-adapted to widely varying local conditions and priorities.

This inter-disciplinary conference will bring together researchers, practitioners and policy-makers on local energy systems, to consider how best to exploit low carbon sources of energy, and manage or reduce energy demand.
