BasePower’s Robin Hardy has been invited to speak alongside a number of experts from the energy sector at the Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum Keynote Seminar.

“Priorities for UK energy innovation: funding, commercialisation and collaboration,” will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss innovation and future direction in the UK energy sector. Chaired by Chi Onwurah MP, Shadow Minister for Industrial Strategy, Science and Innovation, the line up includes a keynote speech from Matthew Billson, Head of Strategy - Energy Innovation Programme, at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Robin Hardy, BasePower’s Projects Director, will present “Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology; the challenges for industrial integration,” under the key conference themes of technological development and innovation.  He will discuss the integration of CHP technology into sectors such as food and automotive where manufacturers are looking to mitigate the rising costs of energy.  He will look at the opportunities to deliver energy cost and carbon savings for the industry and discuss how a well-configured CHP project can actually be more efficient than grid generation. He will also demonstrate case studies where on-site energy schemes have been successfully integrated into a site’s existing operations.

The Westminster Energy Environment & Transport Forum Keynote Seminar takes place on Thursday 7 March at 61 Whitehall, London. Tickets are available by booking on the event website.
