Event description

Description

This symposium aims to showcase the research being carried out through the Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) and emphasise the importance of collaboration with a range of stakeholders. The programme will feature presentations from International experts and a panel discussion on Targets for 2030 and the role of Energy Systems Integration.

The Energy Systems Integration Partnership Programme (ESIPP) is a research programme focussed on the integration of Energy Systems, such as electricity and gas, along with other infrastructures including data and water. As Energy Systems evolve they are becoming increasingly integrated, and this research seeks to provide an understanding of the interactions, and to identify ways to optimise these systems and energy use.
