Put Wednesday 25th September in your diaries! After the success of last year’s inaugural event OPP once again partner with the European Copper Institute to host a cocktail evening (G&Ts will abound) to welcome new MEPs and their assistants to Brussels.
The Energy Storage Europe is an international trade fair with accompanying congress on the collection and storage of renewable energy, which is an issue that moves scientists and politicians worldwide. The conference is characterized by well-known speakers and participants. Here are discussed the latest developments in energy storage, but are also given critical insights into the market development and technology integration.
Each year, AABC Europe brings together a global audience of battery technologists and their key suppliers for a must-attend week of development trends, breakthrough technologies and predictions of the market for years to come. As more European nations and international automotive OEMs make their own commitment to vehicle electrification, we are excited to carry that momentum forward for 2020 and beyond. Our program continues to expand coverage of the research and development of the chemistries and materials supporting the next generation of electric vehicle batteries, while maintaining our core focus on applied technologies needed for hybrid and electric cars and specialty vehicles.
This Symposium has the sub-title of “Metallurgy as a tool for challenges in circular economy”,which emphasizes the important role metallurgy and metallurgists have in solving the resource deficit in metals and minerals. We have already seen the shift from “traditional” raw material research towards recycled materials and their impact on metallurgical processes. Another emerging or growing trend is the need and request for minimizing and utilizing waste in processes. All this underlines the importance of fundamental metallurgical research, knowledge and education, when we are changing from linear economy towards Circular Economy of Metals.
The 12th Energy Storage World Forum will feature speakers from 16 Utilities, 2 IPPs, 2 C&Is, 7 Regulators from 19 countries. Join us for a fun-filled evening at the Pool Deck of Sheraton Roma Hotel on 8 Oct 2019 for a Gala Dinner to mingle with more attendees from companies such as TENNET, TRANSNET, TERNA, EKZ, KEPCO and UKRENERGO.
In June Orgalim announced the creation of a new Innovation and Digital Transformation team. At the helm is Christoph Luykx, who has joined Orgalim as a Director – bringing with him extensive experience in the digital sector gained at companies like Intel and CA Technologies. Here, he talks to us about the state of play in EU digital and innovation policy and shares his team’s priorities as Brussels gears up for the next legislative period.
ICBR is the international platform for presenting the latest developments and discussing the challenges faced by the battery recycling industry. The 24th edition of ICBR will bring together many experts and decision-makers of the battery recycling value chain such as battery manufacturers, battery recyclers, OEMs from the electronic and e-mobility industry, collection schemes operators, service and transport companies, policy-makers and many more.
The two-day program will go into the many different applications of seaweed that exist now and will combine plenary sessions with interactive poster presentations, trade shows and debate sessions, among others.
Shallow geothermal energy represents a well-developed, non-volatile and clean technology for providing efficient heating and cooling across Europe. Still, it is widely considered as a niche technology, however it has the potential to become a powerful game changer towards a decarbonized heating and cooling technology. The next decade from 2021 until 2030 is crucial to fulfil the SDGs defined in the “Clean Energy for all Europeans” initiative of the European Commission. The Shallow Geothermal Energy Days aim at connecting policy makers to scientists, to promote and discuss opportunities for boosting this technology in the upcoming decade.
It is true that shipping, along with aviation, is probably the most difficult sector in transport to fully decarbonise. One would assume that the EU is running discussions at high speed to bring the emissions of shipping, one of the largest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting sectors of the global economy, down as fast as possible. Quite the opposite is the case though, with shipping gaining only very little attention in European climate policy. One directive including some points on sustainable shipping is the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive, which states that “Member States shall ensure that the need for shore-side electricity supply for inland waterway vessels (…) and inland ports is assessed in their national policy frameworks.”[ii], which doesn’t set any binding target. Apart from that, NAIADES II, an EU-led project, aims to facilitate a modal shift in transport from road to sea, for many reasons, including environmental ones.
Today, NGVA Europe released its gas in transport manifesto with five policy recommendations to enable a cleaner future for transport. It will function as basis to steer the future of Europe’s mobility and environmental agenda, where the use of natural and renewable gas can contribute to decarbonisation and improved air quality.
From 9 to 12 July, 25 primary schools teachers, selected from the network of EU Code Week Leading teachers within the 28 EU member states, will gather in the Future Classroom Lab in Brussels to attend the pilot Summer School. Co-organised by EU Code Week and Code.org, this unique pilot training opportunity will provide primary school Leading teachers with tools, hands-on workshops and training resources to implement computational thinking and coding in their classrooms.
The 63rd Annual Regular Session of the International Atomic Energy Agency General Conference is being held from 16 to 20 September 2019 at the Vienna International Centre (VIC) in Vienna, Austria, where high-ranking officials and representatives from IAEA Member States will consider a range of issues.
Experts, practitioners, decision-makers, business innovators and young professionals from a range of sectors and countries come to Stockholm to network, exchange ideas, foster new thinking and develop solutions to the most pressing water-related challenges of today. We believe water is key to our future prosperity, and that together, we can achieve a water wise world.
World Water Week provides a unique forum for the exchange of views, experiences, and practices between the scientific, business, policy and civic communities. It focuses on new thinking and positive action toward water-related challenges and their impact on the world’s environment, health, climate, economic and poverty reduction.
European companies are operating in a fierce global environment, facing rising competition from the US and Asia. At the same time, the urgency around sustainability is growing constantly – from addressing climate change, to resource scarcity, to population growth.
EURACTIV invites you to this high-level workshop to discuss the strategic regional importance of the East-West Corridor and its future potential. Questions will include:
– How can the corridor help foster good relations, peace and stability in the Caucasus and Central Asia and solve cross-border political issues?
– How will the corridor encourage further economic progress in the region?
– What new investments in energy infrastructure projects can the corridor support?
– Which countries are geopolitically important as regional hubs of the corridor?
– What potential exists for the establishment of new ports and other transport hubs as the corridor develops over time?
