CIED investigates the drivers and barriers to low energy innovations throughout the economy and the implications of these innovations for energy demand. We aim to uncover the processes and mechanisms through which different types of innovations become (or fail to become) established, identify the role of different groups, explore the resulting impacts on energy demand, and develop recommendations for both facilitating the diffusion of such innovations and maximising their long-term impact.
