Introduction section 1 - UCL

  1. 1. UCL Energy Institute Introduction to UCL Energy Institute UCL Energy Institute, University College London g.anandarajah@ucl.ac.uk www.ucl.ac.uk/energy
  2. 2. UCL Energy Institute University College London (UCL) has been ranked as the fourth best university in the world by QS World University Rankings – 2012. The UCL Energy Institute (started in 2009) delivers worldleading learning, research and policy support on the challenges of climate change and energy security. Core researchers at the UCL Energy Institute carry out worldleading research in the fields of buildings, energy systems, people and energy, policy and law, smart energy and transport. • Academic staff - 16 • Research staff – 34
  3. 3. Teaching MRes in Energy Demand studies (from 2009) • Technical modules (thermodynamics, building physics, behaviour, energy systems, modelling, policy and economics) • Transferable skills (e.g. writing, presenting, communicating with the public) and research. MSc in Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment (Starting from September 2013) • Research Concepts and Methods; Environmental and Resource Economics; Modelling, Methods and Scenarios; Political Economy of Energy Policy; Evidence, Policy Assessment and Environmental Law; Advanced Energy-Environment-Economy Modelling; Energy, Technology and Innovation; Energy, People and Behaviour; Business and Sustainability; Advanced Quantitative Methods • Dissertation (60 credits) Mphil/PhD in Energy and …….

  11. 11. UK Renewable and Climate change targets • Climate Policy – The UK has committed to reducing carbon emissions by 34% below 1990 levels by 2020 and by 80% by 2050. • EU Renewable Energy Directive – The UK has also committed to increase the share of final energy consumption from renewable sources to 15% by 2020
  12. 12. UK Energy and Climate Policy Contd.. • Renewable Obligation (RO) – Require 15% of renewable in electricity production. The RO has been increased to 30% (RES 2009) • Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) – 5% (10%) renewable from 2020 • Renewable heat – 12% renewable from 2020 • Feed-in Tariff Scheme (FiTS) • Renewable Heat Incentive – The RHI supports the production of non-domestic heat from renewable and low-carbon sources through payment of a tariff similar to FiTs. • EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EUETS) • Carbon price floor – Plan is to start at £16 per tonne of CO2 in 2013 and rise to £30/tCO2 in 2020 and £70/tCO in 2030
  13. 13. UK Energy and Climate Policy Contd.. • Climate change levy (CCL) – CCL is an energy use tax on business and the public sector (not households or transport), introduced in 2001. • The Green Deal – is a policy to encourage energy efficiency improvements in the UK's building stock. It will be financed through loans attached to the energy bills of the improved properties. • CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme – The Carbon Reduction Commitment is a scheme which requires large energy users (more than 60,000 MWh per year) to cut emissions and improve energy efficiency. • Vehicle emission tax, Labeling programme
