Energy Transitions Research at the University of Cambridge

Friday, 24 April, 2015 - 13:00 to 14:00
Event location: 
Lord Ashcroft Building (LAB) 027 (Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge Campus).

The UK, along with the rest of the world, is facing an unprecedented set of challenges: a rapid transition to a low carbon energy system, climate change, technological advancement and demographic change to name but a few. Each will have profound implications for our economy, communities and environment. Successful responses demand that we think differently about how we use land, create places, deliver infrastructure and generate growth.

While daunting, these challenges place us at an immensely exciting point in history. By bringing together the collective human capital of business, academia, the public sector and communities we have the opportunity to solve these problems in ways that are socially equitable and environmentally sustainable whilst ensuring that the economy works for us.

This session will explore these issues and the opportunities for using our built environments, landscapes and infrastructure in different ways and the delivery mechanisms we have at our disposal to make change happen.
