Energy policy making: understanding effectiveness and the role of evidence

This event considered how we might determine whether policy is effective, efficient and equitable, and also how evidence is considered in the policy development process.

Mark Winskel and Niall Kerr introduced the ClimateXChange project ‘Policy Effectiveness in Energy Policy’, and Jan Rosenow and Paul Cairney presented on the policy making process, understanding policy effectiveness and the role of evidence and experts.

The event was organised with the Energy and Society group at the University of Edinburgh.
