Upcoming Event: Low Carbon Heat Infrastructure, 23 February #Manchester

Free seminar, no need to book.

Tyndall Manchester would like to invite you to attend the next talk in our seminar series on “Low Carbon Heat Infrastructure” by Dr. Mei Ren, on Thursday 23rd February (room C1, George Begg Building, Sackville Street) at 4.00pm. 

Low Carbon Heat Infrastructure

Dr. Mei Ren, BuroHappold and The University of Manchester (biography attached)

We have taken our energy supply for granted in the past. A step change is required to understand the challenges we are facing and to achieve the potentials of energy infrastructure which present a huge opportunity not only for unlocking growth but also in achieving environmental and social goals.

This talk will first set the context of why the low carbon heat infrastructure is needed, followed by the initiatives and policies that the government has currently put in place. Successful delivery of low carbon infrastructure needs strong leadership from local authorities and private and public partnership. Business models can be developed to suit individual cities and towns, embracing private sector investment with local authority leadership.

This talk will also describe available technologies and use a number of case studies (which are in varying stages of development) to explain the rationale for selection of appropriate technologies, business model and the lessons learnt.

The seminar will take place in room C1, in the George Begg Building on Sackville Street– number 17 on the map here-  http://www.manchester.ac.uk/discover/maps/interactive-map/?id=14
