Sustainable mobility and urban energy infrastructure planning

There are spaces for Cranfield University’s workshop on understanding the interaction and interdependencies between urban development, energy infrastructure and electric vehicle (EV) policies.

This workshop is organised by Urban Development, Energy infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility (UDESMO) network, funded by ESRC. UDESMO aims to address the knowledge gap on the interaction and dependency of energy infrastructure and urban development, alongside the impacts of EV policies, within different institutional contexts.

This event aims to bring national and local policy makers, academics and energy industry together across the UK and South Korea (KR) to achieve the following objectives.

  • Facilitate knowledge exchange on role of urban planning and policy in facilitating the management of power networks in the UK and KR
  • Generate comparative insights on policy goals, implementation structures and instruments across the UK and KR
  • Identify lessons to share to enable cost-effective operation of power networks between the UK and KR

The first day of the event will focus on setting a research agenda with presentations from UK early career researchers, break out discussions and a panel debate with South Korean academics. The second day focuses on policy knowledge exchange presentations from BEIS EV Energy Innovation and Oxfordshire County Council, complemented by virtual presentations by Korea Energy Economics Institute and Korean Institute for Human settlements.

We will cover travel and accommodation expenses of early career researchers who want to share their research with us on 31st August at the University of Oxford.
