FILMS & PHOTOS

Energy systems are all around us – but largely ‘invisible’. Underground gas and electricity lines; pipes and wires behind walls and increasingly ‘waves’ and ‘clouds’ that keep us connected 24/7.

Our photos and films aim to ‘show and tell’ how energy is produced – and gets delivered to where we need it.
Roll-over the images for some startling facts and figures.

TESTIMONIALS

Jenny Palm_NB
My research focuses on energy systems from social science perspectives, from technical planning and technical diffusion/adoption to governance and energy communities.
Stephen Parks_NB
How people use energy for transportation and urban sustainability are my main areas of interest
Martin Thirkettle_NB
I’m keen to understand how people use visual information and how we can change behaviour through visual content.
Will Eadson_NB
I’m exploring diverse ideas about urban democracy in the context of clean energy transitions.
My interests lie in how urban policy can support or discriminate against disadvantaged communities.
Aimee-Ambrose
I’m interested in people’s lived experience of energy in their homes and society more broadly.
Aimee Ambrose, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
Richard Bull_NB
My work investigates how people engage with energy in non-residential buildings, with a focus on environmental aspects.

CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH ENERGY!

With the goal of engaging people in debates and decisions about energy, the project taps into oral history techniques while taking people ‘inside’ energy systems to see how they work.

Walking with energy is led by a dynamic team from very different disciplines: social sciences, architecture, psychology, urban planning and environmental economics. Their shared interest lies in better understanding what people know about energy and what energy behaviours they might change if they knew more.

BLOGS & MORE

To demonstrate how lived experiences contribute to research that can support a cleaner energy future, WWE offers Blogs that summarise academic research, Oral Histories that highlight personal stories, and Outputs geared towards reseachers, policy makers and other actors.

Blogs-WWE does exciting work!

BLOGS

While academic papers can be rather dry and detailed, WWE does exciting work! Here, we highlight key findings in ways that can support policy decisions, advocacy and activism.

ORAL HISTORIES

Understanding how people acquire and use energy is central to WWE’s research. We’re grateful to people who have given us permission to share their energy stories.

OUTPUTS

For those wanting to access our academic papers and publications, this area provides short summaries and relevant links.
