Meeting the UK’s Energy Demand Challenge

Going further, faster and flexibly to meet our future energy needs

A new UK Centre for Research on Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) will officially launch at this event.

The new Centre builds on research undertaken by the End Use Energy Demand Centres (EUED) – a series of projects that explored new ways to manage energy demand. At this event EUED findings will be shared, including those of the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand (CIED), providing the context for the work of CREDS. We will be looking at the way we use energy in the UK and what approaches can be applied to transform the future energy demand.

The Centre is funded with £19.5 million from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

Join our event to hear about the work already done and what is planned over the next five years to achieve our ambitious goals.

“The goals of a secure, affordable, low carbon energy system are only achievable if energy demand is reduced, decarbonised and made more flexible. Understanding how these changes can happen is a major inter-disciplinary research challenge.”

(Professor Nick Eyre, Director of the new Centre).
