Transition Pathways to a Low Carbon Economy
The Transition Pathways to a Low Carbon Economy consortium was established in 2008 and is sponsored by E.ON UK and EPSRC. The consortium is managed by Prof Geoff Hammond at the University of Bath and Prof Peter Pearson at Cardiff University (Co-Principal Investigators), and includes research teams at the universities of Bath, Cardiff, East Anglia, Leeds, Loughborough, Strathclyde, Surrey, Imperial College London and University College London.
The overall research aim of the project is to select, develop and analyse a set of potential transition pathways for the UK energy system to a low carbon future, and undertake integrated assessments of the technical and economic feasibility, and social and environmental potential and acceptability of these pathways.
The consortium is undertaking historically-informed and forward-looking analysis of energy system transitions, bringing together quantitative and qualitative research methods in a novel and exciting collaboration.
The objectives of the project are addressed in 3 broad Themes:
