Dr Brenda Boardman, MBE, is Emeritus Fellow at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford. She joined in 1991 and until her retirement was Head of the Energy Group. Her research into the way we use energy in our homes takes an inter-disciplinary approach by considering technical, economic, social and political implications. Her primary focus has been on the problems faced by the lowest income groups – the fuel poor. Brenda continues to work on fuel poverty and co-authored a report in September 2023 on the effect of fuel price rises on households using smart prepayment meters in the UK: Finding the fuel poor and framing better policy. Her talk will consider the competing needs of the poorest households and climate change, both today and into the future.

Research officer/project leader at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. He has a long experience and record of research activity and scientific policy advising in earthquake engineering and environmental design of buildings. He has developed a method named SAFESUST for the combined, seismic and energy, design of buildings. He has been active in a Pilot Project for the combined rehabilitation of buildings and he is currently leading a Preparatory Action in support of the New European Bauhaus initiative.
