London Loughborough Centre for doctoral research in energy demand

The London-Loughborough Centre, a partnership between UCL andLoughborough University, is the new UK centre for energy demand research.

Our world needs new, clean ways to generate energy. But as economies slow and belts are tightened, governments and businesses are focusing on the other side of the energy equation: how to use less, rather than how to make more.

It connects science and engineering with economics, policy-making, psychology, sociology and design, to develop knowledge and ideas that will lead to real, long-lasting, large-scale solutions.
