Energy policy can be shaped at many different levels and by many different institutions. Therefore, we have studied the construction of energy governance at different scales (e.g. local, community, regional, national) and done comparative international work as well.
Project student Jan Rosenow has successfully completed his doctorate on energy efficiency policy making in the UK and Germany. Significant pieces of research on the effectiveness of Green Deal and the role of demand in Electricity Market Reform contributed to UKERC policy submissions in these areas.
