Summary

Dr. Richard Hanna is a Research Associate based in the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London. He works on Technology and Policy Assessments (TPA) for the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC). Currently, he is leading a systematic review of best practices in heat decarbonisation policies internationally. At Imperial, he has also conducted a rapid evidence review of timescales from basic research to commercialisation of energy technologies and consumer products. Previously he was a Research Fellow at the University of Reading from 2013 to 2015. Contributing to the Dynamics of Energy Mobility And Demand (DEMAND) project, he conducted secondary analyses of time-use data to understand how the structure and social distribution of householder practices shape peak electricity demand. Richard completed his PhD at the University of Surrey in 2013, examining the influence of installer businesses on the rate of microgeneration uptake and on installation standards in the UK.
