About the Energy Scientist

The Energy Scientist is a personal blog about my mission to achieve net zero for a household in Southern England. I'm exploring all aspects of this problem, with a focus on using data-driven analyses to guide my decision making.

Achieving net zero for emissions is critical to fight climate change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has clearly stated that if we are to limit global warming to 1.5°C we have to reach net zero emissions by the middle of this century 1. This target is not only scientifically imperative, but also crucial from a moral standpoint. The effects of climate change will disproportionately affect vulnerable communities and future generations.

The transition of our economy to net zero emissions will require significant change in our energy systems and infrastructure. This will include increasing the use of renewable energy generators, improving energy efficiency, and implementing national and international policies to promote sustainable practices. I'm a scientist with a background in using quantitative data analysis to solve problems. To achieve net zero emissions, data-driven problem solving, and action is required at all levels. Governments, businesses, and individuals must work together to set ambitious targets, invest in research and development, and implement policies that incentivise activities that will lead to a more sustainable and prosperous future for us all.

This won’t be easy, but it is possible. On this blog I explore personal reflection on this process, driven by data analyses and explorations of my own life. Join me as we explore this exciting frontier.

Not sure where to begin? Why not begin with a look at how my household carbon footprint is made up?
