1 1 Fuel poverty in policy and practice - a postgraduate symposium Friday 16th November 2012 Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences, University of Sheffield Triple bottom line impacts of community energy initiatives Crossing disciplinary boundaries with Bayesian Networks Philip A Leicester BSc DIS School of Civil and Building Engineering Centre for Renewable Energy and Systems Technology Loughborough University

2 2 Fuel poverty in policy and practice - a postgraduate symposium Friday 16th November 2012 Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences, University of Sheffield Presentation Objectives Introduce the research project. Describe the utility of Bayesian Networks as a methodology for this problem domain. Demonstrate the adoption of Solar PV and impact on fuel poverty as a case study. Highlight the future potential of the methodology Solicit feedback from domain experts!

3 3 Fuel poverty in policy and practice - a postgraduate symposium Friday 16th November 2012 Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences, University of Sheffield Research Aim: To develop and validate a methodology for the evaluation of the triple bottom line impacts of community energy initiatives.

6 6 Fuel poverty in policy and practice - a postgraduate symposium Friday 16th November 2012 Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences, University of Sheffield While fuel prices and low incomes are constituent factors, the real cause of fuel poverty is the energy inefficiency of the home.

7 7 Fuel poverty in policy and practice - a postgraduate symposium Friday 16th November 2012 Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences, University of Sheffield 7....I find myself referring to reports published by CSE going back several years which presented findings that are extremely pertinent to the debates we are having now. So one, some or all of the following must apply: CSE is failing to communicate the things we’ve discovered; ‘the system’ (DECC, Ofgem, BIS, DoH and their former incarnations) isn’t listening to us; ‘the system’ is unable to assimilate evidence and analysis Ian Preston, “Fuel Poverty – reasons for being Seriously unimpressed.” CSE 14 November 2012.

26 26 Fuel poverty in policy and practice - a postgraduate symposium Friday 16th November 2012 Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences, University of Sheffield Conclusion Bayesian Networks can propagate probabilistic causal relations and facilitate prognostic and diagnostic inference. Can combine expert opinion (subjective probability) with quantitative (frequentist probability) from multiple knowledge domains. Explicate a complex problem with intuitive causal map and systems thinking Facilitate decision making under uncertainty But... Require rich data and conditional probabilities... we need to share data!
