Energy Seminar 4: Climate Change Scenarios

The Paris Agreement has sent a signal around the world: climate change is a serious issue that governments are determined to address. Steven Fries will present Shell’s latest energy-system scenario, called Sky, which illustrates a technically possible, but challenging pathway for society to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. Global Warming of 1.5°C is an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty. The report is due to be published in October 2018 and Prof Jim Skea will discuss its findings.

Venue:Baringa Partners, Dominican Court 17 Hatfields London SE1 8DJ

Speaker(s):Steven Fries, Chief Economist, Shell, Professor Jim Skea, IPCC

Doing More for Gender Balance in the Energy Sector

For the first time, this year’s BIEE Research Conference included a Women in Energy Session. This new session format featured a panel of three distinguished female energy experts and leaders from academia, policy and industry who shared their personal insights on three issues: personal strategies for women’s careers in the energy sector, corporate culture promoting diversity; and opportunities and challenges for women’s career advancements in consumer-centred energy systems.


Conference Blog No. 7 Unlocking the benefits to end consumers

UK Government’s commitment to decarbonise the economy along with developments in disrupting and decentralised technology and business models is driving a great pace of change in the way electricity is produced and consumed. For consumers we see new services and business models emerging such as peer-to-peer energy trading, home energy storage, smart tariffs (Time-of-use tariffs), Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services, and ‘energy as a service’ when energy is bundled with other services and even goods. We believe that common arrangements that enable access to and interoperability between central and local energy markets (new and existing) is the best way to maximise the benefits from these emerging opportunities for commercial and domestic consumers.
