CLUES Conference: Energy in the Locality

A day-conference to explore local energy case studies in urban and rural locations.

8th May 2012, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1

Many current research projects on energy systems are using urban and rural case studies to explore a variety of research questions.  They employ a wide range of techniques and resulting findings provide a rich platform for interaction between academics, on the one hand, and policy makers and practitioners, on the other hand.

The CLUES Conference: Energy in the Locality is organised as part of the CLUES Project ( and aims to provide an opportunity to hear results from local case studies on different aspects of energy systems, and to reflect on the theoretical and methodological implications of using case studies to understand such systems. A key note address will be given by Professor Patrick Devine-Wright of Exeter University, after which the conference will consider research findings from case studies, theoretical and methodological foundations and innovations local energy initiatives.

Those hoping to present should submit abstracts by 24th February 2012. Conference participation is free but a limited number of places are available and priority will be given to those giving presentations. More information can be found at
