The UK Energy Research Centre funded an initiative which provided an opportunity for 30 women working in the broad field of decarbonisation of energy, from different regions, nationalities, disciplines, and varying career stages, to collaborate in small groups and prepare a proposal for seed funding during a two-day residential writing retreat in March 2019. Emilie Vrain, a member of our SILCI team was awarded the opportunity to attend this retreat and was successful in securing funding to complete a one year project with four other female researchers to investigate the possible barriers to decarbonising the UK’s heat sector.
