Summary

The prospect of higher energy prices and carbon constraints raises the potential need for radical process redesign and substitution of energy intensive materials.

This study used existing end-use studies, thermodynamic, economic and life-cycle analysis to address the potential for change and review the long run impacts of UK industrial energy efficiency research, development and demonstration programmes from the 1980s. The project has developed a new UK industrial sector model and has linked findings of technical models of the UK building stock with behavioural models and actual energy use.
