Goulden and Spence awarded a prize from the British Sociological Association

Murray Goulden and Alexa Spence have been awarded a prize from the BSA for their recent article published in the journal Energy Policy on the role of Facilities Management in energy conservation and efficiency in the workplace. The prize giving will take place in Spring 2016. The judges noted:

“Goulden and Spence make a strong theoretical and empirical case for paying greater attention to ‘middle agents’ in energy networks, in this case the apparently mundane role of Facilities Manager. Studying these managers provide key insights to the messy issues and conflicting logics that lie behind macro-scale carbon reduction targets. The paper brings together literature on energy consumption and organisational sociology with rich empirical detail, with a welcome eye on practical recommendations for action.”
