DEMAND Summer School

Nick and Robin will attend the DEMAND Summer School from 14-16th of July! The Summer School, titled Peaks, Sites and Cycles, is hosted at Lancaster University in the UK and will include a camping trip to the nearby Lake District.

The 2015 Summer School will focus on Peaks, Sites and Cycles; the temporal and spatial dynamics of energy and mobility demand. These are critical issues in the social sciences, and for practical efforts to reduce and manage peak loads in energy and mobility. Participants, along with researchers and academics from the DEMAND Centre will explore a variety of concepts and approaches for studying social space and temporalities of daily life. We will use these ideas to consider a range of questions including: how and why do patterns of daily life vary across space and change over time? In what ways do technologies, interfaces and infrastructures co-constitute these patterns? How are assumptions of time and space imagined and incorporated into future visions, strategies and policies?
