Birmingham Centre for Environmental and Energy Economics and Management (BCEEEM)

The Birmingham Centre for Environmental and Energy Economics and Management (BCEEEM) brings together individuals from a variety of disciplines to examine the complex relationship between economic activity and the environment.

Energy efficiency of firms

Our researchers have conducted a number of cutting-edge studies –looking at companies around the world, from Ghana to Japan – to discover more about why this might be. The results provide a deeper insight into how businesses can achieve increased energy efficiency. Learn more.

Cold Commission

The ‘cold economy’ is crucial to modern society; without it, the supply of food, medicine and data would, quite simply, collapse. In 2015, the Birmingham Energy Institute launched a Policy Commission, entitled Doing Cold Smarter, to look at cold at a system level, and how to combine the growing demand with the large amounts of waste.
