Thesis in Three Competition (09:30-12:00)

 

Students are asked to deliver an “elevator pitch” overview of their research in just 3 minutes. Each speaker has just 3 slides which will automatically progress after 1 minute. The format is designed to be rapid paced and concise to give a flavour of the research without getting too technical or detailed. Students are judged on three criteria: ContextClarity and Charisma.

 

The event is open to students at any stage of PhD or masters-level energy research. Research topics related to technology, modelling, policy, economics, etc. are welcome. The competition is Ireland-wide for students in the energy and environment fields. Videos from last year’s National Final here. To take part in the thesis in 3 presentation email: valenting.rigoni@ucdconnect.ie

  

Guest speaker: "External Collaboration to Expedite Innovation" (12:45-13:00)

 

 John McKiernan, Head of External Collaboration ESB, will introduce the practices that international utilities are taking in order to promote innovation. The presentation will include a description of the international Free Electrons program.

 

Panel Discussion: "Big utilities: in danger of extinction?" (13:00-14:00)

 The panel will discuss the changing role of big energy utilities in future power systems. The panel will consist of key industry stakeholders including the system operator, network owners, utilities and end-use customers. Dr Owen Wilson, CEO of Electric Association of Ireland, will give an introduction and opening statement for the discussion.
