Cambridge Energy Forum and The Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR), University of Cambridge are organising a joint-seminar “On the rebound: could energy efficiency improvements backfire?” in Cambridge on 14th May at 13:30-17:10.

The “Rebound Effect” is also known as the “Jevons Paradox” and it is the effect whereby increased energy efficiency can increase, not decrease, energy consumption. It has immediate political implications and is still widely misunderstood. The event will describe: a) what the rebound effect is b) how it manifests itself c) what we can do about it.

Attendance is free, but prior registration is required at http://www.cambridgeenergy.com/meet.php?event=2009-05-14

This talk is part of the Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research Seminar Series series.
