‘CO2 impact from electricity demand’, Dr. Adam Hawkes – 5th International Conference

Building on his paper in last year’s conference Dr. Adam Hawkes of Imperial College London presented a project he has been involved with to establish the true CO2 impacts from electricity demand and on-site generation choices and the interactions of those choices for the planning and commissioning of large power stations or energy supply options. The carbon implications of moving to, for instance, heat pumps will be very different if they are expected to be largely powered by nuclear power stations or building integrated PV systems.
