David is an expert in policy around the decarbonisation of buildings, working closely with nearly all major UK government, NGO and commercial sector stakeholders in this area of policy. David has produced several high profile pieces of research on issues around fuel poverty, carbon reduction and housing. David has long had an interest and focus on energy efficiency and fuel poverty in multi-occupancy housing, for example carrying out groundbreaking research on fuel poverty in HMOs.
