Energy Systems Conference 2016: 21st Century Challenges
14-15 June 2016 | QEII Centre, Westminster, London, UK
The Energy Systems Conference brings together research, academia, industry and policymakers to:
- Expose and address the flaws and gaps for energy systems in areas including policy, investment, attitudes, management and security.
- Examine emerging research and technology and new policy, critically assessing what can and should be implemented to ensure effective integration between different parts of the energy system, from resources to end users.
- Reflect on real world case studies.
- Discuss how the cost of energy systems can be optimised to drive investment and uptake.
The theme of the Conference will be “21st Century Challenges” which speaks to a new and emerging energy trilemma: 1) jobs, wealth and productivity, 2) low carbon and affordable energy, and 3) energy security. Focussing especially on the coming 15 years, we will examine the global drivers affecting the energy system such as governmental policy commitments and objectives, global climate change commitments, and resource constraints.
