Matthew Hannon

Matthew is a Senior Lecturer and the Director of Research at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, within the University of Strathclyde’s Business School. His research examines the policy and market conditions necessary to accelerate innovation of low-carbon energy technologies and business models. He has advised major energy stakeholders in the past, such as BEIS, Scottish Government, Ofgem and major trade unions, and acted as lead author for World Energy Council reports. He is also a council member of the British Institute for Energy Economics. As Co-Investigator of Energy-REV, Matthew helps lead two separate but related work packages: business and finance (WP 2); and policy and regulation (WP 3). His extensive research expertise across both domains means he will play a critical role in ensuring the two work streams are strongly aligned.
