“Individual action on the environment can make such a difference,” says Sara Walker, a Professor of Energy at Newcastle University. “If more people make small changes, they will all add up.”
Sara is a passionate campaigner on green issues and carried out research into how wealthier households could be encouraged to invest in technology to reduce energy demand – and then spread the word among friends.
She is also an advocate of renewable power and the use of hydrogen, and has convened a new ‘hub’ on hydrogen integration to better understand the scope of the technology’s potential future applications. Stakeholder events will take place over the summer ahead of the launch of a manifesto and five-year programme of research beginning in October.
