Remote Working: Implications for the Electricity Network and Emissions

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in drastic and abrupt changes to daily life. One area where this change has been particularly stark is energy consumption. Lockdowns across the globe resulted in a reduction of overall energy consumption, carbon emissions and air pollution. It is estimated that during April 2020 there was up to 25% reduction in global CO2 emissions and significant reduction in other greenhouse gases and air pollutants [1]. These estimates are primarily based on the changes observed in peoples’ mobility as shops and offices closed and those who could do so, started to work from home. While remote working for most is a temporary interlude necessitated by public health measures, it has been a growing trend prior to the pandemic and now some companies, such as Twitter, have announced that employees will be allowed to work from home indefinitely. This raises the question about the possibilities and the implications of remote working in a longer-term perspective for the energy sector and emissions post pandemic.

About The Journal

The London Journal of Energy is a biannual publication written by students about current energy affairs. It is published by LSE, Imperial College, UCL and ESCP Energy Societies and is currently the largest student print publication on the energy sector.

Our unique venture was founded in September 2016 at LSE Energy Soc. In September 2017, the Journal moved to Imperial College. In September 2018, UCL joined the Journal team and in January 2019, ESCP joined the family.

We combined forces to bring something new to our perceptions of the industry. Each university has particular knowledge of the energy sector; when we combine, we broaden our knowledge. It also gives students the chance to connect with like-minded people.

We have attended the yearly G3 Summit since 2018 and we take part in events throughout the year. One of our highlights was when we were nominated for a Bright Network Society of the Year Award - you can find out more here.

In the first quarter of 2020, the oil market was as turbulent as a hurricane hurting the US Gulf Coast. The dramatic collapse of oil demand pushed oil prices to new territories. The situation sets a gloomy future for weaker oil producers in the upstream sector. This led to a fragile coalition between crude oil producing countries.
