Event description
A one day conference to highlight the scientific and technological challenges and solutions for De-carbonisation of the Northern Powerhouse

About this Event

A Joint Meeting of the Yorkshire Geological Society and the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, contributing to the Geological Society of London Year of Carbon, 2019

Northern England and Scotland spearheaded the first industrial revolution through the energy provided by coal. In the 21st century, humankind faces the challenge of reducing our carbon emissions and managing the impacts of climate change. Can the ‘Northern Powerhouse’ lead the way in our transition to low carbon energy?

The Yorkshire Geological Society and Yorkshire Philosophical Society present a full day programme of illustrated lectures by leading experts on new low carbon energy technologies and solutions for carbon capture.

Keynote Speakers:

Andrew Bloodworth, British Geological Survey

Charging Ahead: Decarbonisation, electric vehicles and the new age of metals

Philip Ringrose, Equinor ASA

Dimensioning storage for systematic supply of Hydrogen energy systems

Prof David Manning, Newcastle University

Carbon capture in urban soils as a passive climate mitigation tool

Shorter talks will cover a range of other topics including:

  • Carbon storage in underground rock formations, industrial wastes and reforestation,
  • Geothermal energy resources and monitoring of environmental impacts
  • Supplying minerals for transport electrification

Please see our latest YGS Circular for full details of the programme, speakers and abstracts.
