UCL Lunch Hour Lecture: Energising the city
Professor Yvonne Rydin (UCL Bartlett School of Planning)
The hunt is on for how to make sure that energy consumption in urban areas is reduced and comes from more renewable sources. A major new project at UCL will be considering the contribution that decentralised energy systems can play in terms of carbon reduction and urban sustainability more generally. This lecture discusses the issues involved from cultural acceptance of new modes of engaging with energy systems to the complex interconnections between local, regional and national energy systems.
