The UK INDEMAND Centre aims to enable delivery of significant reducations in the use of both energy and energy-intensive materials in the industries that supply the UK's physical needs. To achieve this, we need to understand the operation and performance of the whole material and energy system ok UK industry; we need to understand better our patterns of consumption both in households, and in government and industry purchasing, particularly related to replacement decisions; we need to look for opportunities to innovate in products, processes and business models to use less material while serving the same need; and we need to identify the policy, business and consumer triggers that would lead to significant change while supporting UK prosperity.
