, 2014, Corporate reporting implication in migrating from defined benefit to defined contribution pension schemes: A focus on the UK, Accounting Forum, Vol: 38, Pages: 18-37, ISSN: 0155-9982

Pensions are intricately linked to employees' well-being in the latter part of their life and during their working life in that they provide a sense of financial security in retirement. Since the 1980s, pension schemes have changed both in concept and detail with significant consequences for beneficiaries. This paper explores one of the major changes: the migration from defined benefit (DB) to defined contribution (DC) pension schemes focusing on this change's interface with accounting. In exploring this shift from DB to DC schemes, the paper uses a critical perspective to reflect on this interface including how the change is accounted for in corporate reporting narrative. The key focus is on issues of political economy: it is found in this respect that while wealth is effectively distributed from pension holders efforts are made to legitimise or displace attention from pension changes. An analysis of narratives of corporate annual reports is undertaken to critically explore corporate communication to stakeholders vis-à-vis pension scheme changes. Findings suggest limited and problematic engagement with employees as per the corporate annual report narrative. We also point to a lack of appetite on the part of existing employees to engage employers on these changes. The change is framed to give workers an impression that they are taking responsibility for their future whilst an alternative view is that in actuality the organisation is decoupling from pension responsibility and devolving associated risks to employees for greater profitability. Counter accounting may be a way forward. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

, 2013, Spatial and temporal electric vehicle demand forecasting in central London

If electricity infrastructures are to make the most of electric vehicle (EV) technology it is paramount to understand how mobility can enhance the management of assets and the delivery of energy. This research builds on a proof of concept model that focuses on simulating EV movements in urban environments which serve to forecast EV loads in the networks. Having performed this analysis for a test urban environment, this paper details a case study for London using an activity-based model to make predictions of EV movements which can be validated against measured transport data. Results illustrate how optimal EV charging can impact the load profiles of two areas in central London - St. John's Wood & Marylebone/Mayfair. Transport data highlights the load flexibility a fleet of EVs can have on a daily basis in one of the most stressed networks in the world, while an optimal power flow manages the best times of the day to charge the EVs. This study presents valuable information that can help in begin addressing pressing infrastructure issues such as charging point planning and network control reinforcement.
