Dreaming Big - The Future of Transport Infrastructure

Date: Thursday 21st June (5pm-9pm)

Location: University of Strathclyde, Glasgow

This subject of this year’s Brunel lecture is Transportation Infrastructure and Interdisciplinary/Systems Interfaces on Complex Mega-Projects including content on the Future of Civil Engineering. It will be delivered by Bechtel’s Construction Director on the new Sydney Metro Tunnels & Stations Excavation team, Linda Miller.

On every continent and in every government, transportation infrastructure is seeing a call to action as hasn't been heard in decades. The reasons driving these are many, and the time for all institutions, private industries and members of the public to put a shoulder behind this boom is now. Why is this so? Why now? The answer is because the next generation is "dreaming big" and they are crying out for:
•    Economic Prospects – The two key factors in bridging the gap between poverty and prosperity are education/skills, and mobility.
•    Social Justice – Future societies increasingly value all people, including those who need multiple diverse pathways for their transport.
•    Environmental Imperatives – Climate change and the counting of our Carbon Footprint are no longer far away, abstract concepts, or a burden in the hands of our scientists!

The mathematics of the design, management and control of hierarchical energy networks

Date: 16-17 January 2018

Location: Edinburgh

Future energy networks will be characterised by much greater variability and uncertainty: inputs to electricity networks from renewable and solar generation are naturally highly intermittent, while new patterns of demand, e.g. that required for the recharging of electric vehicles, are likely to be variable and are currently not well understood.  Against this, there are significant new technologies available for the management of future systems. These include the management of demand, storage, generation and the networks themselves. 

Future systems will therefore require more dynamic management and control.  Much of this will happen at distribution level, where there will be major issues of design and operation. Furthermore, while networks are likely to remain hierarchical with separate responsibilities for management at transmission and distribution levels, there will be a need for an integrated approach to the operation of entire systems.

The ESA Integrated Applications Promotion (IAP) programme provides support to impactful developments within space-based technology. It is continually seeking projects that could provide the solution to challenges in satellite services, in this case, for offshore energy.

 

 

This half day workshop will provide an overview of the IAP funding mechanism, the application requirements and highlight some of the benefits of participation in the programme. Integrated Applications projects offer solutions to problems that range from vessel positioning, data communications and weather forecasting to improving and securing transport systems and developing emergency and disaster management systems. The first session will look at the current environment for space tech for Offshore Energy and the future possibilities. In the second section of the workshop, delegates (including ETP's Andrew Tipping) will discuss potential project areas which will hopefully form the basis of IAP proposals.
