This is a Centre for Decision Research (CDR) Seminar hosted by Leeds University Business School on Thursday 10 May 2018
Policy makers are increasingly encouraging households to save electricity, so as to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the reliability of the electricity grid. However, such encouragements may be ineffective if consumers are unaware of how much electricity is used by different appliances.
Leeds University Business School based researcher Dr Vedran Lesic talks about his work to help to enhance the uptake of new and novel systems and technologies for improving resource and energy efficiency in the EU process industries.
