Policy@Manchester launches On Energy

(9 November 2017)

Humanities-based Policy@Manchester has launched On Energy, a collection of thought leadership pieces and expert analysis on issues such as climate change, fuel poverty, energy storage, the economic viability of nuclear power and multi-energy systems.

The online publication was launched at an event in Parliament on Tuesday, 7 November. It brings together expert commentary and analysis from across the University, and is a partnership between Policy@Manchester, the Energy beacon, and the Manchester Energy network.

In his contribution Lord Jim O’Neill, Honorary Professor of Economics in the School of Social Sciences, asks ‘What does the future hold for the demand and supply of energy?’. Also contributing from Humanities, James Evans, Professor of Human Geography from the School of Environment, Education and Development, addresses ‘Urban transformation: from replication to learning’.

Other University contributors include:

- Alice Larkin, Professor of Climate Science and Energy Policy;

- Francis Livens, Professor of Radiochemistry and Director of the Dalton Nuclear Institute;

- Patricia Thornley, Professor of Sustainable Energy Systems and Director of the Supergen Bioenergy Hub. 

  • You can read On Energy on the Policy@Manchester website.
