Project Title: Disinvestment and Death Spirals – governance issues for future energy systems

Supervisors: Dr Matthew Lockwood and  Dr Catherine Mitchell

Funding Body: EPSRC

Project Description:
This project will look at how important the fossil fuel disinvestment movement is as a driver of energy policy;  how important the carbon bubble argument is for energy policy; and whether ‘death spirals’ are unusual occurrences for network companies or whether their drivers are something the network companies need to understand.
