Peter completed his PhD on the mechanisms behind the success and failure of global energy efficiency and demand response policies. The PhD covered 30 countries, 36 sub-national states and 12 different types of demand-side policy. He worked at the IEA in the energy efficiency unit whilst finishing his PhD, and now works in the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change.
Peter enjoyed his experience in the LoLo centre, particularly the multi-disciplinary nature of the course and regular access to energy experts from a range of disciplinary backgrounds.
In October 2015 Peter joined the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) as a Senior Scientific Officer – Technical Energy Analysis, now the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
