Welcome to Energy in the City, Conference C92 of the Solar Energy Society (www.uk-ises.org) to be held at London South Bank University, Wednesday 23rd - Thursday 24th June 2010.
It is estimated that by the end of 2010 more people worldwide will live in cities than in rural areas. Cities are hugely important to economic development and wealth creation, which in turn makes them very large consumers of energy. This creates significant challenges for ensuring secure supplies and adequate infrastructures to meet these growing and changing needs. However, cities also offer some very real benefits for efficient generation and delivery of energy services. This conference will explore the opportunities for local energy generation and community based delivery systems including the best new technologies, advances in network design, business models and the role of regulation and policy that can achieve truly low carbon cities of the future.
The conference is organised by the the Solar Energy Society, UK section of the International Solar Energy Society, in partnership with London South Bank University to celebrate the opening of the university ‘s Centre for Efficient and Renewable Energy in Buildings (CEREB) in the new Keyworth 2 Building.
The official opening of CEREB will be made by Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, in the evening of Wednesday 23rd June.
We look forward to welcoming you to London South Bank University.
