Mapping vulnerability to fuel poverty in the UK: Implications for future energy demand and sector governance.
My project is part of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Power Networks, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The research will map vulnerability to fuel poverty within the UK, forecasting future demand for energy on this basis.
Mapping will incorporate both qualitative and quantitative techniques and allow for consideration of the complex spatial, social and political dimensions associated with future scenarios of increased or decreased fuel poverty.
The research aims to inform the development of network infrastructure in the UK, enabling policy to adapt to the multiple uncertainties associated with future demand for energy.
