February 2016 Dr Danica Greetham presents at the KAPSARC conference

Dr Danica Greetham presented some of the results from the Thames Valley Vision project at a one-day workshop "Modelling dynamics and institutional change in energy systems: The role of agent based modelling which took place in King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Centre (KAPSARC).

January 2016 Ugo Guarnacci (associate to CMoHB) a paper on the use of social network analysis in post-conflict, post disaster Indonesia

The paper applies social network analysis (SNA) as a methodology to investigate community resilience after the December 2004 tsunami and the March 2005 earthquake which struck both Nias and Aceh, Indonesia. Through the analysis, this research focuses on the urban and rural gradients and shows how victims' personal characteristics such as religion, ethnicity, and gender create different community's circles of social support.

    November 2016 CMoHB and Oxford University joint research is showcased at the Low Carbon Network conference

In November at the prestigious low carbon network conference research from the two departments covering the topics of forecasting, load analysis, prediction of low carbon uptake and network modelling was presented. Posters can be found here:

August 2015 Anush Pogoyashan publishes paper on electrical vehicle energy demand

The Low Carbon Network Consumer Behaviour Workshop, 7th November 2012

The Low Carbon Network (LCN) Consumer Behavioural workshop (November 2012), hosted by the University of Reading on behalf of the Thames Valley Vision project, demonstrated (i) that projects funded by the Ofgem LCN Fund benefit greatly from sharing technical and analytical concepts, methods, data and results; and (ii) that they may also leverage interest form other UK university research teams, funded on other national programmes (at UK universities).
