SEN Presents - Monday 8 February 2016, 5.30pm for 6.00pm start

Our first SEN Presents for 2016 might seem a bit unusual but this interesting topic compliments SEN's new modelling programme SIREN (you will all soon be invited to the Beta Launch on 2 March). While SIREN provides costed technical options for promoting renewables, our Key Speaker, Greg Morrison, will be talking about social organization methods of transition to sustainable societies facing climate challenges, which necessarily incorporates transition to renewable energy.

 

In addition to our key speaker, SEN's Vice Chair Samuel Begg will give a preview of SENs plans and strategies for the year. An exciting time for renewable energy, the SEN Technical Team continues to grow it's reputation as an independent research organisation. Samuel will expound on the aims of our teams and the key discussion points, outlining their part in SEN's greater goals.

 

Key Speaker

Title: Climathon and Living Lab activities for the establishment of a climate-related knowledge innovation community in Perth and Australia

 

Short description.

This presentation will provide examples of knowledge innovation activities from the European Climate-KIC which have the sole purpose of providing measurable impact on climate mitigation and adaptation. Climate-KIC is an initiative operating across several European countries designed to mobilize public-private innovation partnerships to bring together, inspire and empower a dynamic community to build a zero carbon economy and climate resilient society (http://www.climate-kic.org/about/).
