Call for papers: Postgraduate symposium on household energy consumption, technology and efficiency

We are pleased to announce this call for papers for a one-day symposium that will take place at the University of Birmingham's School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences on the 6th of June 2012. The symposium is being organised under the auspices of the EPSRC-funded ADMIER (Accelerating and Disseminating Methodological Innovation in Energy Research) project (http://espru.wordpress.com/admier/). It is part-funded by the Midlands Energy Graduate School (http://www.megs.ac.uk/) and is supported by the Energy Geographies Working Group of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers (http://energygeographiesworkinggroup.wordpress.com/).

The aim of the symposium is to build research capacity and provide a platform for interdisciplinary knowledge exchange, by bringing together postgraduate researchers with scholarly interests in energy demand and consumption, as well as interventions and technologies in the home.

Paper topics can include, but are not limited to:
-       Household energy practices as they relate to domestic energy technologies;
-       Political, social and cultural dimensions of technical energy efficiency interventions in the home;
-       Behavioural issues surrounding the use of ‘slanty devices’;
-       The role of domestic energy efficiency in conditioning fuel poverty and energy vulnerability;
-       Energy citizenship and low carbon policies in the residential environment;
-       Energy demand and consumption patterns among young adults, particularly students.

Paper abstracts of no more than 300 words should be sent to Dr Saska Petrova ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) no later than the 1st of May 2012.

Limited travel bursaries will be available – please indicate your interest in them when sending your abstract.

The event will be followed by a one-day international workshop on the same topic, including presentations from several leading researchers in the domain of domestic energy efficiency, technology and consumption behaviours. Participants in the symposium will have the opportunity to stay on for the workshop.
