Scottish Research Alliance for Energy, Homes and Livelihoods
The Scottish Research Alliance for Energy, Homes and Livelihoods (SRAEHL) brings together researchers, industry, business, policy, and community partners to help achieve an equitable and sustainable net zero future.
Host Institution: University of St Andrews
With partners and collaborators from the following Scottish universities so far:
- University of Strathclyde.
- University of Edinburgh.
- University of Dundee.
- University of Glasgow.
- University of Stirling.
- Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Scotland is faced with the challenge of how to become a climate-aligned Net Zero society that is inclusive, equitable, and achievable – not just a pipedream for those who can afford it, but a reality that is possible for everyone. By bringing together researchers, industry, business, policy, and community partners, this cross-sectoral interdisciplinary alliance will work with the country’s households to achieve a sustainable energy transition.
This research alliance is really important because it embraces the fundamental complexity in achieving an inclusive energy transition by bringing together social, financial, and technical areas of expertise. With high rates of fuel poverty, exacerbated during a crushing Cost of Living crisis, we risk that a Net Zero Scotland becomes a two-tier society that leaves behind those who are already struggling. Thanks to the support from the Scottish Funding Council, we are in a position to mobilise world-leading expertise and forge new collaborations, anchored in the shared vision of creating a better energy future for us all.
