Oxford Martin Initiative on Reconfiguring Energy Needs
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Professors Nick Eyre and Malcolm McCulloch launched a new related initiative to shift society’s approach to energy and accelerate net-zero living.
The Oxford Martin Initiative on Reconfiguring Energy Needs will work with partners and large datasets to identify tipping points in energy use that have been exposed by the pandemic. These findings will be used to develop virtuous feedback cycles and messaging to drive lower energy demand from households, to drive down energy use, energy bills and shift society towards equitable and sustainable living.
