Conference: Invisible energy policy

Our Acting CEO, Adrian Gault, will be a panel member at this conference. The event is being organised as part of the DEMAND Research Centre’s Invisible Energy Policy project, with support from the Research Council’s UK energy programme. ‘Invisible energy policies’ are described as ‘non-energy policies with significant – if mostly unseen or ignored – impacts on energy demand and carbon emissions’.
