Description

Energy in an age of uncertainty

13th June 2017 - Loughborough University - Conference call

2016 was a year of surprises: Brexit, Trump and even Leicester winning the premier league. Similarly, the results of energy research have the potential to surprise, perplex and disrupt. At the London-Loughborough 2017 Student Conference, we are inviting PhD students and early career researchers in energy demand and related fields to discuss counterintuitive and surprising results of their work. Alongside abstracts for 10 minute presentations, we welcome submissions for the conference poster session. Furthermore, we welcome general attendance for those wishing to engage with questions surrounding unexpected results in energy research.

Alongside presentations, the keynote speech will be given by Prof. Elizabeth Shove, co-director of the DEMAND Centre. Submission and attendance is free and includes lunch and drinks reception. Prizes will be given for the best poster and best presentation.

Topics under focus in the conference will include:

  • Energy demand

  • Energy networks and system management

  • Energy modelling

  • Energy policy and planning

  • Energy and the built environment

Research from a wide variety of backgrounds and using a variety of methodologies to investigate these topics will be welcome, including both engineering and social scientific approaches. Specific attention will be paid to work featuring surprising results or avenues for future research.

Abstracts should be no more than 250 words and be submitted to loloconference@gmail.com by 7th May 2017, stating whether you wish to give a presentation or exhibit a poster.
