Bio/Research

Dr Boardman's main research focus is on energy efficiency and the way that energy is used in British homes, particularly by low-income households, i.e. fuel poverty. She considers the economic, social and technical aspects of the subject and her work has a strong policy emphasis. She is widely viewed as one of the most experienced in her field and was awarded an MBE in 1998 for her work on energy efficiency and received the Energy Institute's Melchett Medal in the same year.

Dr Boardman has provided expert witness statements for Friends of the Earth and Help the Aged for the judicial review of the government's policies on fuel poverty, and has given evidence to the House of Commons Environmental Select Committee Study on Energy Efficiency and Fuel Poverty (2009).

She was formerly a Co-Director of the UK Energy Research Centre for Demand Reduction and head of the Lower Carbon Futures Team at the Environmental Change Institute.

Her publications include "Fixing Fuel Poverty - Challenges and Solutions" (2010).
