£3,000 TEDDINET prize: smart meter data and the public interest

Research challenge for post-doctorate researcher

23 July 2015

We are looking for a researcher (post-doctorate level) to deliver a short policy project on domestic smart meter data and the public interest. We anticipate that this will take 3-5 weeks to complete, and we're offering £3,000.

The work will be guided by CSE and Sustainability First, with support from TEDDINET. It will need to be undertaken before the end of November.

There are two outputs:

  1. A short non-technical discussion paper of 20-30 pages on the policy issues arising from ‘Smart Meter Data & Public Interest Issues’.
  2. Participation in a joint TEDDINET, Sustainability First, CSE high level workshop on ‘Smart meter data : who is thinking about public interest issues?’ involving government officials, regulators, academics and other key thinkers with a public policy focus, most likely in February 2016.

Full details can be found on the TEDDINET website here.

CSE's head of research, Josh Thumim said: "This is a great opportunity for a post-doctoral level researcher who knows their way around current official sources of household energy statistics and data to contribute to the current and sometimes controversial topic of smart meter data."
