We hold a regular programme of meetings on a wide variety of topics including world energy markets, oil, gas, climate change policy, renewable energy, and energy efficiency. We always allow plenty of time for discussion and debate. Where possible we try to examine issues from a range of perspectives. Our discussions encompass a diversity of views on the way in which contemporary energy challenges should be tackled. The meeting programme is managed by the BIEE Council and members are welcome to suggest topics for meetings. Please contact the Vice Chair for the year if you would like to suggest a topic. BIEE meetings are free for members. For more information about membership and to join please go to the membership section.

Continuing Professional Development – CPD
Some BIEE meetings are now certified for CPD purposes by The CPD Certification Service. Attendees should refer to individual event pages for further information.CPD or Continuous Personal/Professional Development is the term given to the continuation of learning through knowledge enhancement and is a mandatory or recommended requirement for many professions. Many employing organisations also have CPD schemes in place for their employees. Many professionals and employees are required to fulfil an annual CPD target, which is usually stipulated as a minimum number of hours.
The Scottish Government has proposed to increase its greenhouse gas emissions target to achieve a reduction of 90% below 1990 levels by 2050. his seminar asks the questions central to the issue of adopting these new targets in Scotland. How will the targets work in practice? Are reductions on this scale realisable? How can costs and risks be mitigated and benefits maximised? What should be the key elements of Scotland’s strategy?
