Faye Wade

ClimateXChange Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Edinburgh
I am an interdisciplinary energy researcher, studying the different actors responsible for delivering change to our built environment, these include policy makers, local authorities, and organisations and individuals in the construction sector. I am currently working on a social evaluation of the Energy Efficient Scotland programme; the Scottish Government's cornerstone strategy for reducing energy consumption and decarbonising heat in the built environment. My previous work has included an ethnographic investigation of how, through their work, heating engineers can shape the central heating technologies installed in homes and how they come to be used, and the application of qualitative approaches to better understand the changing nature of construction work with the introduction of new technologies.
