BSRIA would like to invite you to join us for the 2nd “Networking in the North” event.
Following feedback from our members and clients, the focus this time will be on how buildings and estates can manage their energy effectively to achieve both carbon and cost reduction.
This informative and engaging event will provide fantastic opportunity to network with peers and hear about how organisations are dealing with the challenge.
The construction, operation and maintenance of the built environment accounts for some 45% of total UK carbon emissions. Managing energy in buildings and in the built environment is crucial to inform where capital investments can be best spent, it helps reduce carbon emissions, reduce risk from energy price increases or supply shortages and reduce energy costs.
BSRIA has secured a range of great speakers for the event. We will hear about challenges other organisations faced and solutions they have deployed to successfully reduce the energy consumption. Discussion will embrace latest energy efficient technologies, policy processes and procedures that are available to help organisations improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
In view of the enormous challenge that government targets for the reduction of carbon emissions pose to the industry we will hear the latest about the progress of hydrogen to be used as heating fuel in the future.
On the day, delegates will be invited to consider a framework for energy management that can be used post event for their own specific circumstances.
This event is an excellent opportunity for organisations to network, to be informed about the latest trends in technology and energy management and to learn more about BSRIA.
The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) – HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt, Energy and Engineering Consultants
For an exhibition and conference centre and two accompanying hotels TECA has deployed a sophisticated energy strategy combining anaerobic digestion, hydrogen fuel cells and CHP plant to create an ‘energy eco-system’ and provide the most sustainable venue of its type in the UK with the aim to achieve a reasonable payback. We will hear first-hand from the team at HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt about how this was achieved. A presentation not to be missed.
HyDeploy – Keele University
HyDeploy is a pioneering hydrogen energy project designed to help reduce UK CO2 emissions and reach the Government’s net zero target for 2050. The project is the first of the three-stage R&D program where capabilities of blending hydrogen with natural gas network are tested. Keele University will present their work which has successfully achieved the blending of 20% hydrogen with their natural gas network and introduce us to the potential this technology represents for the UK in the future.
Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU)
Manchester Metropolitan University is home of the Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre that houses an impressive range of advanced equipment located in seven specialist laboratories and spaces. During the presentation we will hear more about the centre and the program that aims to explore the viability of fuel cells as a technology to use on the path towards the low carbon heating.
The event will be held at the Lancashire Energy Head Quarters, a venue that houses a large array of state-of-the-art equipment designed to support the energy industry.
Delegates will be treated to a tour of the facility, including its industry-standard nuclear and renewables simulator.
