Dr Stephen Hall currently holds an EPSRC fellowship investigating deep decarbonisation of cities. He is interested in the links between low carbon innovation, economics, energy, climate change and society. Steve’s work draws on quantitative and qualitative approaches to energy transitions. In particular he is interested in the role of cities and regions in delivering infrastructures compatible with low carbon futures.
Steve has undertaken international work on urban emissions modelling, infrastructure finance and energy decarbonisation. Steve has recently published research on innovative business models for energy transitions, how finance and ownership models have both technical and social effects on energy systems, and how cities can play a key role in decentralised energy expansion. Steve’s work has been incorporated into national energy policy, used by the Infrastructure Commission, and adopted by the International Energy Agency.
