We will have a strong presence this year, with a stand at the exhibition (booth L21) and several representatives on the conference line-up.
This year’s conference features over 50 sessions looking at the full spectrum of renewable energy technologies, on topics such as energy systems, energy storage, disruptive technology and innovation – all major current areas of interest for us.
For the first time this year, the organisers are hosting a co-located Dcarbonise conference with an emphasis on energy efficiency, low-carbon heating and low-carbon transport – the last set within the Smart Urban Mobility Solutions conference stream.
The conference sessions that the IET will be contributing to are as follows:
- Energy Efficiency 2 – Diving in Deeper, 15 May at 14:00 in Alsh 2 (Dcarbonise)
Our Built Environment Lead Rick Hartwig will be speaking about our Scaling Up Retrofit 2050 report and looking at how deep retrofit can improve the energy efficiency of UK housing.
- The IET’s SME Innovation in Energy Session, 15 May at 14:00 in Gala
The IET is working to help SMEs in the energy sector navigate the innovation landscape and succeed. With a network of professionals with experience (both good and bad) across the innovation landscape, the IET invites SMEs and those interested in the energy sector to engage and be part of building a breakthrough knowledge repository for future generations.
A number of energy experts will be participating in the session:
Duncan Botting – IET Energy Sector Executive Committee chair and managing director of Global Smart Transformation Ltd
Helena Anderson – Managing director of Ikigai Capital
Liam Bolton - Innovation community lead, Energy Innovation Centre
Olivia Carpenter-Lomax – IET Energy Sector Executive Committee member and senior consultant – technical, Ricardo Energy & Environment
Justina Zvirblyte – SME engagement manager at Energy Systems Catapult
- Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, 15 May at 16:00 in Gala
Dr Robert Sansom BSc MSc DIC MBA CEng FIET will preview the upcoming joint-PEI Transitioning to Hydrogen: Assessing the Engineering Risks and Uncertainties report. A collaboration between the IET, IChemE, IMechE, IGEM and the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), the report takes an independent and impartial look at the engineering risks and uncertainties of using hydrogen for heating.
