Presentation / Conference
Chatterton, T., Barnes, J., Yeboah, G., & Anable, J. (2015, June). Energy justice? A spatial analysis of variations in household direct energy consumption in the UK. Paper presented at eceee 2015 Summer Study on energy efficiency

Targets for reductions in carbon emissions and energy use are usually framed in terms of national and international percentage reductions. However, the amount of energy used by households varies greatly, with some households using considerably more t... Read More about Energy justice?
