Transition to low-carbon heat
Considers options for low-carbon heating to understand their implications for users and energy systems.
Community energy and the low-carbon transition
Considers the motivations, costs, benefits and risks when using community energy as a means of increasing public engagement with energy usage and acceptance of energy infrastructure.
ERP seeks to understand the gap between energy aspirations of UK cities and the regulatory / policy frameworks, processes and factors required to achieve them.

Recent initiatives from the EU, IEA and G8 demand that the UK take a strategic approach in involvement in international activities, which should include public and private sectors.
An Economic Value Assessment of Low Carbon Pathways (EVAP)
Considers how the UK currently assesses economic impacts & benefits within some of its major pathway and scenario works.
Engaging the public in the transformation of the energy system
Recommends the need for a Strategic Narrative and the importance of engaging with the public.
Public Engagement Workshop, 10 May 2013
This workshop brought together a cross-section of academics and public and private sector colleagues with a range of experiences in public engagement to inform ERP’s work on Public Engagement.
