Mini Stern Review 'Economics of Low Carbon Cities' Report Released

Mini Stern Review 'Economics of Low Carbon Cities' Report Released

Professor Andy Gouldson of Leeds University and Jon Price of the Centre for Low Carbon Futures will publish their groundbreaking research on the potential for commercially viable, energy efficient, low carbon cities to the All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group on Thursday 12th January.


Cities currently spend around 10% of their GDP on their annual energy bill - and this is increasing every year. Are there cost effective ways of cutting their energy bill whilst also enhancing competitiveness and creating employment? If so, what are the most cost and carbon effective options, how much do they cost and how quickly would they pay back? Is the business case strong enough to attract major investments? And if we made these investments by how much could we cut city scale carbon emissions?


Panelists will include:


  • Lord Redesdale, APPCCG (Chair)
  • Professor Andy Gouldson, University of Leeds and director of the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy
  • Dr Nafees Meah, Head of Science, Department of E    Adrian Gault, Chief Economist, Committee on Climate Changenergy and Climate Change (DECC)
  • Andy Deacon, Director of Local Delivery, Energy Savings Trust
