Event Details

DEI 3rd Annual Symposium

Energy Systems Integration:

What do we know and what do we need to do now?

The energy industry is facing countless new challenges as current resources run out and new sources are developed. Our sources of generation are changing and our transmission systems are now being asked to work in a very different way to their initial design. Tackling these global challenges requires collaboration and innovation in both behaviour and technology. Lead by recently appointed DEI Director Professor Jon Gluyas, this Symposium aims to provide an insight in to 4 of the major challenges of integrating our energy systems. 

The morning panel debate sessions will include panels on Energy and Ethics and Energy Storage as well the results of the photography competition. The afternoon session will include a 3 Minute Thesis Competition, and panel debate sessions on the UK Energy Market and Technologies & Methodologies. There will also be a Keynote speech by Dr Robert McGrath, Director – Renewable & Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI), University of Colorado – Boulder.  

Come along to take part in the discussion and inform the debate on the steps required to integrate the old and the new energy.  

This free symposium is open to academics, industry specialists, policy makers, energy planners, funders and energy professionals as well as community groups, students and the general public.

There will be a free networking drinks reception following the symsposium from 17.45 to 19.00.

Durham Energy Institute

From Anthropology to Physics, Durham Energy Institute covers the spectrum of energy research but the areas in which we excel are those which lie at the boundaries between the traditional technical disciplines and the social sciences and humanities. We encourage such interdisciplinary work as we feel these areas will yield major breakthroughs. The small size and compact nature of the university is to our advantage as it naturally stimulates interactions between departments and disciplines. Thus, we are agile and responsive and we can quickly assemble bespoke-research teams.
