Transforming energy demand through low­carbon innovation

SILCI team member, Charlie Wilson, was one of the authors in a new study published in Nature Energy which shows how dramatic transformations in the way we move around, heat and cool our homes, and buy and use devices and appliances in our cities can help raise living standards in the global South to meet UN Sustainable Development Goals while also remaining within the 1.5oC target set by the 2015 Paris Agreement. Improved living standards for all need not come with a large increase in energy demand at the expense of the global environment.
