UK Centre for Research on Energy Demand

Lead Research Organisation: University of Oxford
Department Name: Environmental Change Institute SoGE

Abstract

This proposal responds to a call from the Research Councils for a national Centre on energy demand research, building on the work of the existing six End Use Energy Demand Centres, for which funding ends in April 2018.

Energy demand reduction is a UK success story, with a 15% fall in final energy consumption since 2004. Major further reductions are possible and will be needed, as part of a transformation of the energy system to low carbon, to deliver the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UK carbon budgets. Moreover, a low carbon energy system will be increasingly reliant upon inflexible and variable electricity generation, and therefore demand will also need to become more flexible. In short, changes in energy demand reduction will need to go further and faster, and demand will need to become more flexible.

These challenges have far-reaching implications for technology, business models, social practices and policy. Our vision is for energy demand research in the UK to rise to these challenges. The Centre's ambition is to lead whole systems work on energy demand in the UK, collaborating with a wider community both at home and internationally. We aim to deliver globally leading research on energy demand, to secure much greater impact for energy demand research and to champion the importance of energy demand for delivering environmental, social and economic goals.

Our research programme is inter-disciplinary, recognising that technical and social change are inter-dependent and co-evolve. It is organised into six Themes. Three of these address specific issues in the major sectors of energy use, namely: buildings, transport and industry. The remaining three address more cross-cutting issues that drive changing patterns of demand, namely the potential for increased flexibility, the impact of digital technologies, and energy policy and governance.
Each Theme has a research programme that has been developed with key stakeholders and will provide the capacity for the Centre to inform debate, deliver impact and share knowledge in its specific area of work. The Themes will also undertake collaborative work, with our first joint task being to assess the role of energy demand in delivering the objectives of the UK Government's Clean Growth Plan.

The Centre will also include Challenges that respond to cross-thematic questions for UK energy demand. These will mostly be developed in consultation over the early years of the Centre, and therefore only one is included in the initial plan: on the decarbonisation of heat.

The Centre will function as a national focus for inter-disciplinary research on energy demand. In doing this it will need to respond to a rapidly evolving energy landscape. It will therefore retain 25% of its funds to allocate during the lifetime of the Centre through a transparent governance process. These funds will support further challenges and a 'Flexible Fund', which will be used to support research on emerging research questions, in particular through support for early career researchers.

We are working closely with key stakeholders in business and policy to design our research programme and we plan detailed knowledge exchange activities to ensure that the work of the UK energy demand research community has broader societal impact.

Planned Impact

The Centre aims to be a globally leading research organisation in the field of energy demand. The scale of energy demand, its flexibility and how these might change are increasingly recognised to be key dimensions of the challenge of transforming energy systems to be low carbon to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change. In a UK context, using energy more efficiently and flexibly is critical to developing an affordable, secure, low-carbon energy system.

The outputs of our research will set out how technical, behavioural and social change can reduce energy demand across all the main energy-using sectors of the economy: buildings, transport and industry. In addition, we will identify the main approaches to making energy more flexible, the opportunities resulting from the digital economy and how policy might drive change.

To ensure these results have an impact, we will produce a range of different outputs, including policy and business briefings, media articles and conference presentations. The Centre will also interact directly with key stakeholders. We will have a strong network of active partners, who will assist in dissemination of our research results. We will collaborate with them over the lifetime of the Centre to shape the research programme, co-create projects, discuss conclusions and plan outcomes.

As a national Centre, we will represent the whole energy demand research community in our events and outputs. In this way, the Centre will act as the focal point for UK university based research on energy demand issues. It will play a key role in ensuring that relevant research in UK universities is made available to businesses and policy-makers addressing these challenges.

Our key non-academic audiences will be: businesses directly engaged in promoting energy demand innovation and major industrial energy users; policymakers and their influencers, in the UK and more widely; other organisations supporting energy demand reduction and flexibility; and the media that communicates on these issues to the general public.

Our modelling work will produce data and software tools, which we will make available to other researchers via the UK Data Archive and the UKERC Data Centre.
Our first output will be an analysis of the energy demand aspects of the UK Government's Clean Growth Plan and Industrial Strategy. And we will provide evidence to the Committee on Climate Change for the UK's 6th Carbon Budget.

We will develop strong international research partnerships, through a visitor programme and strategic links with key research organisations in other countries. Through these we aim to influence the reports of the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change.

Results and Impact A meeting between the members of teams working on the SAVE project (SSEN, DNV GL and University of Southampton), and REDPeAK DEePRED projects. The objective of the meeting was to provide overviews of the projects, share findings and explore potential routes for collaboration. As the distribution network operator, SSEN's aim for the SAVE project was to gain a better insight into energy efficient behaviour for specific types of customers: drivers for the behaviour, channels to engage with customers and effectiveness of measures. To meet its aims, SAVE project have been recording the activities carried out by the trial participants along with the energy consumption at their households.
REPeAK and DEePRED projects are using Time Use data to investigate the daily sequences of activities, what drivers are behind the peak time demand and flexibility, and what distributional impacts exists for Time-of-Use tariffs. The overview of the research projects was delivered to the SAVE project team as a presentation.
The discussions during the meeting created an opportunity to strengthen the link between the REDPeAK / DEePRED projects and the SSEN:
- Research output and findings are likely support the findings from the innovation project and provide guidance for future innovation projects involving residential customers
- Data from the innovation project is enriching the analysis of the research projects with latest activity and demand data
