Dr Jan Rosenow joins the Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand

I am very excited to be joining CIED and be able to work with some of the most established academics in the field of energy efficiency. To CIED I bring an interest in the politics of energy efficiency, an area which remains under-researched. Most of the work on energy efficiency focuses on economics, technology, and policy design. In my research, I try to understand what drives policy evolution using case studies including energy efficiency obligations, on-bill finance and soft loans. I also have an interest in fuel poverty policy and the equity implications of energy policy in general. In the past, I mainly worked on environmental and energy economics, largely in the area of external costs of energy.

Since my PhD at Oxford I have been a Visiting Research Associate at the Lower Carbon Futures Group of Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute and an Associate Lecturer and Thesis Supervisor on the MSc in Nature, Society and Environmental Policy at the School of Geography, Oxford University and the MSc in Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment at University College London’s Energy Institute. Past academic positions also include working in the Electricity Markets Policy Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and for the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy.

Besides my role at CIED I work as a consultant being the Knowledge Leader for Energy Efficiency Policy at the Ricardo-AEA Group, an energy and climate consultancy where I develop and lead complex projects on energy efficiency. Key clients include the European Commission, government departments and agencies, energy companies and trade bodies.

An important element of CIED’s work is impact. I am lucky to be in a position where impact can be achieved relatively easily as I work on current policies. In the past, I have been an expert witness to the House of Commons’ Energy and Climate Change Committee and have been interviewed by the New York Times, BBC Radio 4 and The Guardian. My research was cited by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and in various parliamentary reports. Through my academic and consultancy work I also get invited to speak at national and international conferences, seminars and workshops. At CIED I will continue to undertake research that has the potential to impact on policy making – the challenge of energy efficiency offers ample opportunities.
