Dynamics of Energy, Mobility and Demand

Project overview

The DEMAND Research centre was a programme of research focusing on 'what energy is for'.

The research took a distinctive approach to end use energy demand, recognising that energy is not used for its own sake but as part of accomplishing social practices at home, at work and in moving around.
