Description

“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.

Morning panel debate session:

  • Energy and Ethics
  • Energy Storage
  • student posters and photograph competitions

Keynote speaker, Dr Robert McGrath, Director – Renewable & Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI), University of Colorado – Boulder

Afternoon panel Sessions:

  • 3 Minute Dissertation
  • UK energy market
  • Technologies and Methodologies

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.

The day will also feature a Keynote Address from an International energy expert, a photography competition, student poster competition and a ‘3 minute dissertation” as well as a networking lunch and drinks reception.

Full symposium details will be emailed shortly.
