Dr André Cabrera Serrenho is exploring new ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions at a faster pace to meet international climate pledges. This involves identifying new configurations of energy and material systems to supply our future needs with less demand and emissions. André has been working on the identification of opportunities for energy and material demand reduction in industrial systems. He developed dynamic material flow analyses to assess the stocks of cars and buildings in the UK, testing the impact of alternative interventions to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
