A new job…. steering the future of energy research

I’m really pleased to have been appointed to the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Research Councils UK Energy Programme, as a representative of Green Alliance.

The Energy Programme  invested £625 million in research and skills to pioneer a low carbon future. It’s a joint initiative, led by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and bringing together the work of five Research Councils, including the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), for whom I’ve served as a Council Member over the past four years.

With massive changes in energy technology, systems and businesses afoot, and ambitious carbon targets to meet, it’s a fascinating time to be thinking through the future of energy. I’ll hopefully be able to contribute some of my expertise on energy strategy and community energy, and learn a huge amount from my colleagues. The first meeting is next week – I’ll report back.
