IPowerE One Day Seminar

‘Diverse Solutions for De-Carbonisation’

27 September 2023 - IGEM House, Kegworth

This one-day Seminar is aimed at examining today's energy challenges demand a full range of solutions to de-carbonise the power sector. Conventional gas fired plant will continue to support the Energy Transition, with changes to despatch, control, and fuels used.

Energy storage will, be it in battery or grid scale solutions, be used to complement renewable systems, deployed at increasing scale. Grid control and management will assume great importance as today's energy transmission and distribution systems are adapted to meet tomorrow's requirements. This seminar will bring many of these themes together, providing information and the opportunity for discussion and debate amongst your Power Engineering peers. With the added opportunities for networking and discussions in smaller groups during the day and the excellent venue, this should be both an informative

and enjoyable day.

IPowerE Policy Post COP26 - A Brief Statement

The UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) has highlighted that an unprecedented shift in progress will be needed to enable governments worldwide achieve Net Zero Strategies by 2050.  

In the lead up to COP26 the UK’s Net Zero Strategy has been discussed as part of the most recent IPowerE Webinar Series during which the UK’s ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution was discussed by industry experts.

The Institution of Power Engineers continues to focus on the development of clean energy technology developments worldwide; developments across different sectors of power generation, energy storage and the hydrogen economy.  In all the current planning of IPowerE  activities we are ensuring that the expected industrial revolution, improved technology and new technology developments are being addressed.

All IPowerE members are welcomed to actively assist IPowerE in achieving these objectives and new members are encouraged to join IPowerE and be part of these developments.
