Papers, publications, articles

Below is a selection of papers, articles, talks, patents, etc that Paul has either written/ presented or co-written over the past 20(+) years, with web-links to those available on the web (although I can’t guarantee all of these are active – I don’t check on a regular basis).

In addition, Paul co-wrote or provided technical input to many of the EEBPP and Action Energy Good Practice Guides, Case Studies, Energy Consumption Guides, etc, as well as Energy/ Waste Minimisation Case Studies for large multi-national organisations.
