Climate Change & Renewable Energy

The UK is one of the leading countries in the world for renewable energy. With ambitious environmental and carbon reduction targets set by the government, as well as various subsidies in place, renewable energy generation is set to increase significantly.

The speaker for this event is Randolph Brazier.

His talk will discuss the current state of renewables in the UK, including solar, wind, tidal, geothermal and hydro. It will also discuss the opportunities and challenges that the sector faces, as well as the role that renewables are to play in achieving the targets set by government.

The floor will then be opened up in a facilitated discussion for questions, comments and further discussion about the opportunities and challenges.

About Randolph:

Randolph has a Masters in Sustainable Engineering from the University of Cambridge and works at URS Infrastructure and Environment UK, in the Renewable Energy and Power Sector in London.

Randolph has been involved in a wide range of engineering projects in this sector, having worked on projects in Australia prior to coming to the UK. He has worked on multiple projects, including high voltage transmission and connection of large scale wind farms. He is also experienced in the design, installation, testing and commissioning of smart grid solutions.

    Thank you all for organizing the event. Positives: I gained an overview of the different types of energy sources used in the UK and also of some opportunities available in different sectors of the energy market.

    A friendly welcome from the event organizers. The venue was easy to find located a few minutes away from Kings Cross station which has great transport connections.

    Negatives:

    Over reliance on the slide deck! The meeting room had an adjacent kitchen with no partition separating the meeting room from the kitchen. I found the noise and smell from the kitchen distracting from the presentation. While admittedly not the fault of the organizers, the stench from the deep fat fryer pervading the room was truly grim, enough to make me think twice about leaving before I had even sat down at the beginning of the talk! Definitely find a new venue, several places along Pentonville Rd around the corner offer function rooms to meet-ups for free early in the week.

    I was going to that address but I couldn´t find the meeting. Is possible that the address is incorrect?

    If people didn't breed so much in the first place, there wouldn't be so much demand for energy in the second. And, there are plenty of ways one can reduce one's energy consumption.....
