Postponement of the Water and Energy 2020: A Marriage of Convenience seminar
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and in line with government and FCO / WHO guidelines is implementing measures to ensure the health and safety of our attendees and supporting staff at IMechE events. Following UK Government advice to restrict social interaction and movement in public areas, we have therefore taken the decision to postpone the Water and Energy 2020: A Marriage of Convenience seminar due to take place on 18 June 2020.
We hope you understand that, under the present fluctuating circumstances, it is not possible for us to confirm the date at this precise moment, however the new date will be communicated to you as soon as the scale of the impact of COVID-19 becomes clearer.
Given the high power consumption of water infrastructure, utilities are continuously exploring ways to improve the energy performance of their existing processes or integrate new technologies to save power and money. This seminar will explore a number of ongoing projects to do this, and demonstrate how innovation can help the water industry to reduce costs and meet regulatory carbon targets.
The types of technology covered will include:
- Leveraging off-site power, in particular renewables, to reduce exposure to energy prices
- Combined Heat and Power (CHP) – anaerobic digestion of sludge from wastewater to produce biogas
- Hydropower/turbines used to generate power from the flow of water in the network
- Deployment of on-site renewables including photovoltaics and wind on land or equipment owned by water companies
- Fuel cells or battery storage to convert generated energy for use later during demand spikes
Attend this seminar to:
- Improve the integration and performance of generating equipment embedded into water infrastructure
- Learn about technologies including energy storage to optimise their power generation and usage
- Hear from key stakeholders to better understand and meet regulatory or legislative targets
- Gain insight into technologies and systems to deploy which can reduce energy costs and improve environmental performance
- Engage with peers through networking and Q&A sessions to tackle specific technical challenges
