    Online Webinar
    In 2022, the IMechE’s 175th anniversary year, the Institution launched its report ‘A Manifesto for the Future of International Collaborative Engineering’ authored by Dr Tim Fox. The report looks at the challenges and opportunities for international engineering collaboration, especially in the light of the covid-19 pandemic, climate change and emerging geopolitical trends. The key benefit is access to technology, approaches, systems that are particularly high in one country but not in another.

  • Event Type: Technical lecture
    21 June 2023 12:00 to 13:00
    The presentation will commence with an overview of the challenge the UK faces to move to a Net Zero energy balance by 2050. This will include an assessment of the primary energy usage categories of electricity, heat and transportation and how these inter-relate. The technical presentation will focus on how heat and electricity from clean energy sources such as nuclear (SMR and AMR) can combine to create green Energy Carrier solutions.
