Presenting our new animation
14 Dec 2018
We are thrilled to launch our new animation. Developed as a component of the Whole Sytems Networking Fund it explains why we think initiatives like this are so important.
We'd be delighted if you could share it with a retweet!
Funded by EPSRC, the Whole Systems Networking Fund aims to improve equality, communications and collaboration between those working in the field of whole systems energy. The fund is helping to develop best practice around networking, fostering better representation of UK capacity in whole systems energy research, encouraging fresh voices and building new working relationships within the community.
The 18 projects
We are collaborating with 18 different projects each with multiple partners, to develop new ways of working across interdisciplinary and disciplinary research. The awarded projects bring new, diverse voices to the table and are moving beyond ‘business as usual’ approaches, tackling some of the geographical and/or social imbalances found in energy research in the UK. Successful projects also address gender diversity in the UK energy sector.
A UKERC-funded workshop brought together researchers with expertise in energy, environmental and behavioural economics, stakeholders and industry to understand the role of age, latency, gender and how to empower the next generation of elderly women for a transition to low-carbon technologies at the household level.
Many countries are realizing the enormity of the Energy Transition. This has been prompted by commitments made in Paris COP21 Agreement. In this energy transition, whatever the timeframe, the fundamental part of it is justice. Society needs this just transition. And the momentum is gathering.

Our challenges are interconnected, so our thinking has to be too. That's why we at UKERC promote the "whole systems" approach. This week Grant Wilson launches a survey asking how we should teach the next generation of energy researchers.
