The EVALUATE team is organising a conference session on energy and climate vulnerability at the largest geography conference in the UK. Paper proposals need to reach us by the 11th of February!
Next week’s seminar will highlight the socio-spatial construction of energy demand in the home via the notions of energy services, subjects and vulnerability
The last week has seen the publication of two working papers containing some of the latest results of research undertaken within the EVALUATE project. The first paper is titled ‘From fuel poverty to energy vulnerability: the importance of services, needs and practices’ and is now listed in the University of Sussex SPRU Working Paper series.Continue reading “Two new EVALUATE working papers published”
EVALUATE/CURE research associate Sergio Tirado Herrero recently participated in an international symposium in Belfast, with a video introducing the aim and context of some of our recent work, as well as key results and emerging ideas on the spatially-contingent and multi-scalar nature of domestic energy deprivation in Europe.
The EVALUATE project team has recently expanded to include Tomas Maltby – an energy politics researcher in at the University of Manchester, whose work focuses on EU energy security policy, EU agenda-setting and new member states, EU-Russia energy relations and renewable energy policy.
The EVALUATE project has published a policy brief directed at decision-makers across Europe. The brief focuses on energy prices and general poverty trends in the European Union. It is being issued to coincide with the commencement of EU Sustainable Energy Week and the ManagEnergy Annual Conference, where our team is represented Stefan Bouzarovski at a plenary panel discussion.
Following its overwhelming presence at the last three Annual Conferences of the Royal Geographical Society, energy geography research is now featured to a similar extent at the US counterpart of this event: the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers (AAG). This year’s meeting took place in Tampa (Florida) and was extremely well attended by geographers from across the world.Continue reading “The AAG in Tampa: Energy geographers take over”
The Vulnerable Consumer Working Group (VCWG) of the European Commission hosted a workshop on ‘Energy vulnerability in Europe’ on the 27th of February 2014. The workshop, which took place in the DG Energy Headquarters in Brussels, was organized as part of the work programme of the EVALUATE project. It featured 17 presenters from 10 European countries,Continue reading “EVALUATE workshop report – Energy vulnerability in Europe”
The EVALUATE project will be organizing a workshop on ‘Energy vulnerability in Europe’ at DG Energy in Brussels, on the 27th of February. The workshop is the first of its kind: It will provide a comprehensive picture of energy/fuel poverty and vulnerability research from across Europe. The work of 19 researchers from across the continentContinue reading “EVALUATE workshop on European energy vulnerability in Brussels”
CURE Directors Joe Ravetz and Stefan Bouzarovski connect the recent CURE launch event (featuring a lecture by Durham University geography professor Harriet Bulkeley) with topical developments in the UK energy sector.
