Energy Social Sciences Research Group (UCL Energy Institute): The social side of energy use

This poster will introduce the work of members of the newly formed Energy Social Sciences Research Group based at UCL Energy Institute in the Bartlett (faculty for the built environment). Technologies and systems that will change the way we supply and use energy are developing apace, and it is crucial that we understand how people interact with these systems to inform both their design and deployment. Failure to do so risks serious shortfalls in expected energy (and/or carbon) savings and other unintended consequences.

Subjects under research by group members include: energy demand policy, thermal comfort, people's experiences of new ventilation and heating systems and the role of children in home energy use. The poster will present brief summaries of this work. A principal hope is that readers from other departments will recognise possible synergies between their own work and that of the group, promoting greater interdepartmental collaboration.
