Climate Change, rising fuel bills, renewable energy …
we’ve all heard the headlines, but what’s the effect on you?
Have you made changes in your energy use? Do you walk to the shops? Turn down the thermostat? Buy seasonal, local food? Plan a ‘staycation’?
Do you remember how you used energy in the past? Or imagine how you’ll use energy in 10, 20, or 30 years’ time?
Our research into how people think about energy use brings together individual energy stories in ways which we hope will inform the policy decisions which affect us all. So we’d like to know your energy story! Share your views, memories, hints and tips on energy saving.

Our research as it happens: insights, analyses, think pieces, memorandums and conference and symposia presentations. Our published conclusions and research findings will also feature here
Energy Biographies explores how people use energy in everyday life in order to understand how reductions in energy demand might be achieved.
Brief biographies and contact details for all of the project team.
We are interviewing participants from three case site areas throughout the project to explore their reactions to energy use in their own lives.
The case sites represent a range of social contexts from mainstream to niche and varying levels of energy demand reduction interventions from marginal to central.
