I am Professor of Energy and the Built Environment at the UCL Energy Institute and Chair of User-Centred Energy Systems, a Technology Collaboration Programme by International Energy Agency. My research focuses on ways to provide demand flexibility within the energy system, and the roles of consumers, regulators, and buildings in delivering these. I have a particular interest in peer-to-peer energy trading, time of use tariffs, and home energy management systems - and in applications of distributed ledger technologies in enabling flexibility from these sources. I speak and consult widely in the UK and internationally on peer-to-peer energy trading - particularly on the design, conduct and evaluation of field trials for testing the consumer acceptability and response to different flexibility product offerings.
I am a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College and is on the Editorial Board of Nature: Scientific Data.
