Non-energy energy policies and the use of time

Dr Ben Anderson explains shifts in UK electricity demand over 40 years (1974-2014)  looking at non-energy energy policies and the use of time. Peaks in electricity demand generate significant negative environmental and economic impacts. Much policy and research attention has been paid to the temporal flexibility of demand. Dr Anderson takes a look at the stable and dynamic social structures and forms of organisation which might have direct implications for policy debates around this issue.

Dr Anderson is Principal Research Fellow in the Energy & Climate Change Division of the Faculty of Engineering and Environment at the University of Southampton, UK. Currently he is a visiting research fellow at the Centre for Sustainability.
