ESPRU research featured at the UK’s Royal Geographical Society Annual International Conference

Three members of ESPRU presented papers at the Annual International Conference of the Royal Geographical Society, held in Edinburgh between the second and fourth of July:

Stefan Bouzarovski convened a session on ‘Rescaling energy security in the UK‘, where he presented a paper titled ‘Energy security and the EU: The contradictory materialities of multi-level hydrocarbon governance’; this paper links to his work on the geopolitical economy of global gas governance project. He also co-chaired the plenary session on ‘Insecure environments‘, convened a world cafe session titled ‘Encounters with resilience‘ (featuring a range of doctoral researchers from the University of Birmingham), and participated in a roundtable discussion on comfort and domestic energy use.

Saska Petrova presented a paper titled ‘Significant invisibles: Energy vulnerability among urban young adults’ at the session on Sustainable Energy in Cities. Her paper, which was based on the results of the EnYA, ADMIER, and INTREACT projects, received widespread media coverage and interest – read read more about that here.
