Event description

Description

Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network and Sussex Universities Mathematics School is running a 3-day Study Group on Mathematics in Energy Systems. This will be run between the 8th - 10th January 2018.


This three day session will be an intense problem solving activity with some of Britains best mathematical scientists tackling some of the hardest problems in the energy systems industry. We would want to attract problems across the energy systems piece - from storage, network supply, integration etc.


This will be the first Study Group on Energy Systems.


The importance of new and novel energy solutions is highlighted in recent investments by Her Majesties Government. The Faraday Challenge, for example, is an investment of £246 million over 4 years to help UK businesses seize the opportunities presented by the transition to a low carbon economy, to ensure the UK leads the world in the design, development and manufacture of batteries for the electrification of vehicles. There are many mathematically challenging topics including modelling degradation, power management, integration.


The Problems: The problems to be tackled by the Study Group attendees will come from small to large companies from the battery design and manufacture sector. These problems (likely to be three) will be announced in due course.


Why take part in the Study Group?

Costs to Take Part:
The majority of the Study Group is paid for by the sponsoring organization (Innovate UK), however to cover some costs, there will be a nominal registration fee of £40. This fee will cover accommodation and meals for the three days. We also ask that travel costs should be sought from attendees’ own institutions.
