Further Information

LoLo CDT Student Led Conference 2016  “How many ways can you change a light bulb? Exploring methods in energy research”

Sustainable energy transitions require an understanding of the social, political, technical and economic dimensions of energy demand.  This conference will explore how different approaches and methods can contribute to generating long-term solutions

This conference is primarily aimed at PhD and early career researchers, with a focus on work in progress, and the aim of creating an inclusive environment in which a diverse audience can discuss the challenges and opportunities offered by different approaches to energy research.

The conference is designed to facilitate discussion of different methods in the context of specific research projects, through a combination of presentations and smaller group workshops.  Places are strictly limited to allow in-depth exploration of the issues.

The conference will be held in UCL’s Bloomsbury Campus on Thursday 16 June 2016.  Register for free at
