Policy engagement forms one of the core pillars of the Centre for Energy Ethics. The demand for and benefits of academics’ engagement with policy realm are clear and well proven. Research helps to shape better, more effective, and innovative policy and ensure that policy decisions are grounded in evidence. Providing written evidence submissions to parliamentary inquiries is a great way to get research into the very heart of policymaking process.
In the last few months, researchers at the Centre provided written response to the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee’s Inquiry on energy pricing and the future of the energy market, and The House of Lords Environment and Climate Change Committee – Inquiry into behaviour change in the context of climate change and the environment.
The submissions present a range of evidence, and each makes a series of recommendations for the Government to consider. Do you want to know what those are? Take a look here:
