UK-Brazil research workshop on building data to support energy and carbon policies
UCL Energy Institute and LabEEE-UFSC are organising a Newton Fund Research Link workshop focused on energy performance of the building stock.
The workshop aims to develop strategies to enable a low carbon transition of the Brazilian building sector towards improved energy performance through better use of energy and building stock data.
It will provide an opportunity for early career and established researchers from the UK, Brazil, and more w
idely to discuss and present on methodologies and evidence for policy makers to prioritise energy in buildings and demand reduction as a viable part of energy systems planning and carbon reductions.
Researchers are invited to apply via the website: https://energyepidemiology.org/workshops/
Funding is available to cover travel and expenses for successful applications from Early Career Researchers in the UK and Brazil (i.e. individuals who received their PhDs in the last 10 years or work in the field and ECR’s who have research experience equivalent to a PhD). Non-ECRs are also welcome to apply but expenses will not be covered.
The workshop will take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil from 23-25 April 2018. The organisers are UCL Energy Institute, University College London and the Laboratory for Energy Efficiency in Buildings at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC), in partnership with the International Energy Agency: Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme: Annex 70.
