Historical trends in the delivery of energy services of passenger transport and space heating

Jonathan Cullen

University of Cambri

Jonathan Cullen is the Lecturer in Energy, Transport and Urban Infrastructure, at Cambridge University Engineering Department (CUED) and a Fellow at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. He leads the newly formed Resource Efficiency Collective, exploring options to reduce energy use and emissions through resource efficient solutions. Jonathan holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Canterbury, and MPhil and PhD degrees from the University of Cambridge, all in engineering. He is the co-author of Sustainable Materials: with both eyes open, described by New Scientist as “clear, well-supported, and vital” and recently listed in Bill Gate’s top six reads for 2015.


The provision of two energy services, passenger transport and space heating in buildings, drives almost a third of global energy use. Delivering these energy services more efficiently has the potential to reduce absolute... [ view full abstract ]
