Description

Energy Demand Networking Hub

Date: 9th May 2019

Venue: Austin Court Birmingham


Purpose of the day: CREDS has a remit to facilitate a networking hub for the energy demand research community. The aim of the hub is to increase the visibility and impact of energy demand research within and outside our community. The hub will therefore promote networking, knowledge sharing and cross-working within the energy demand research community, initially in the UK but then also internationally.

In order to allow good participation and consultation, the first meeting will bring together a limited number of people, based on their involvement as PIs of UK energy demand projects, with a view to broadening this out in future. By the end of the day you will:

  • be better informed about what is going on in the energy demand research community
  • Have identified what support is available to you in relation to key areas of concern
  • Have had an opportunity for networking and discussion

    Based on consultation, the meeting will focus on four main areas of impact:

    • international engagement,
    • policy engagement,
    • business/ industry engagement and
    • data management.

    The format will comprise lightning presentations followed by interactive, consultative sessions that will focus on what the community needs and how the research councils can better support this. The sessions will contribute to an outline plan for collaborations in these areas.


    Attendees: Invitation only event for UK energy demand project PIs from RCUK funded projects. Please bring a printed, one page outline of your project to stick up on the wall.
