This conference offers a platform for worldwide researchers and scientists from academia, industry and government to discuss proposals and disseminate results on sustainable energy and materials and its impact on engineering and our Environment. The formation of lasting productive partnerships between the participants is also an objective of this conference. This research conference is open to all in the research and scientific community.
There are an estimated 2.8 million km of gas transport pipelines globally supplying energy for heating and cooking. This event launches a comprehensive report that evaluates the overall potential for decarbonising the gas network, including the use of biomethane and hydrogen in existing gas infrastructure. The authors have examined the options for creating low carbon gas networks, exploring the technical issues, as well as the decarbonisation potential and costs associated with each option.
This Westminster Forum event will focus on developing the next steps for low carbon and energy efficient heating and cooling systems in the UK. Following the consultation on Heat in Buildings by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and its call for evidence on a ‘smart, flexible energy system’, sessions will assess the impact on the energy delivery system and the future policy framework for heat.

The Centre on Innovation and Energy Demand (CIED) Summer School, which takes place on 10-12 July 2017 at the University of Sussex, will provide a unique opportunity to highly-motivated doctoral and postdoctoral researchers to hear from leading thinkers in the fields of innovation and energy demand. Researchers will also take part in collaborative learning and participatory activities and meet other research students and early career researchers from around the world.
This year's LowCVP annual conference will coincide with the publication of new transport and environment strategies for the capital. It will focus on how city-level policy needs to adapt to tackle the twin challenges of climate change and air pollution in an era of ‘mobility revolution’.
