Description

Energy Futures Lab Annual Lecture - Electricity’s expanding role in the era of climate change

Energy Futures Lab are delighted to announce we are hosting Ulrich Spiesshofer, CEO of ABB Group for this year's Energy Futures Lab Annual Lecture.

Abstract

The demand for electrification is broadening, driven by developments such as e-mobility and the growth of renewables in the grid. Both offer many environmental benefits in terms of reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality. This is particularly important in the face of climate change. However power grids have to transform to accommodate the growth in distributed renewables generation, the growth of energy storage and the changing patterns of demand. The presentation will discuss the challenges of delivering the environmental benefits while transforming into a smarter, greener and stronger grid and cover some of the innovative solutions ABB has employed in tackling them.

Venue

Lecture Theatre 1 in the Chemical Engineering Department is in building 14 On the campus map. The quickest way there is to enter the college from the main entrance on Exhibition Road (near building 36).

Head through across the lobby thorugh the revolving door, across the large courtyard and along the long walkway past a bank of very large screens on your right hand side. The entrance to the Chemical Engineering Department is on your right, head through the automatic doors up two short flights of stairs and turn left, walk about 20 metres and the room is just in front of you on your right.
