In Search of ‘Good’ Energy Policy

Alternate Tuesdays, 12:30–14:00 during term.

Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building


About

The In Search of ‘Good’ Energy Policy research group focuses on energy policy from an interdisciplinary perspective. What constitutes a ‘good’ policy is conditioned not only by technology and financial factors but also by social norms and values, institutions, geopolitics, public trust and history.

The seminar series explores energy policy themes from different disciplinary perspectives - economics, history, philosophy, theology, politics, law, anthropology, psychology, engineering - with the aim of identifying principles and processes for ‘good’ energy policy making.
