Anthropology and Economics of Energy / Danish Heating Policies

Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building

Speaker: Prof Frede Hvelplund, Aalborg University
Respondent: Dr Leslie-Anne Duvic Paoli, Law, Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance, University of Cambridge

Denmark is unique in its heating policies having transitioned from a centralised to a semi-decentralised heating system. Prof Hvelplund explained the process in which the needed co-operation between policy makers, NGOs and industry emerged. Leslie-Anne Duvic-Paoli compared heating policies with clean air policies and clarified why the governance structures for heating are far less developed than air.
