Event Details

We are delighted to announce that Professors Andrew Cruden and Alex Rogers will be giving a joint Engineering@Southampton inaugural lecture on Monday 16th March, entitled ‘Smart Grids, Smarter Vehicles, Informed Consumers’.

Reducing carbon emissions in the UK requires radical change in the way we use energy. Meeting the target of an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050 will require us to increase the use of electricity for transport and heating, and to generate more of that electricity from low-carbon renewable sources such as wind and solar. In this talk, Prof. Andy Cruden and Prof. Alex Rogers will describe how electricity storage technologies and intelligent algorithms will be key to this change; allowing our cars to store electricity that can later be used by the electricity grid, and our homes and offices to adapt their energy use in real-time to better match that available from renewable sources. 

The lecture will be held in Building 46 (Physics), Lecture Theatre A (3001) 18.30-19.30, with teas and coffees beforehand from 18.00 in the Physics Seminar Room (5081). All are welcome, but please register via Eventbrite beforehand.

Over the next few months, we will be hosting a number of distinguished lectures from figures both within our Engineering Faculties and from senior members of industry. Details will be added to FEE and FPSE Faculty calendars and news pages in due course, alongside e-mail announcements.
