DEI Annual Research Symposium - 10 Year Anniversary - Where Energy Meets People

10:00am to 5:30pm, Ken Wade Lecture Theatre, Calman Learning Centre, Durham University, DH1 3LE, Various Speakers

DEI’s headline remit throughout the ten years since its foundation has been ‘science and society’. DEI promotes world leading science, social science, humanities and engineering, and brings them together to develop synergies wherever they are found. DEI has been the leading truly interdisciplinary energy research institute in the UK, if not internationally. Today we celebrate ten years of bringing people together, and thinking differently about energy. Registration is essential for catering purposes via EventBrite.

DEI Seminar Series: Identifying the variables preventing a target based EV re-charging infrastructure, for a given city or country

1:00pm to 2:00pm, TBC, Professor Colin Herron

Cities around the world are in a transition from the incumbent method of vehicle propulsion, the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) to E-mobility. E-mobility is not a defined product, but a technology trajectory to remove ICE from transport, which in this presentation I define as cars and small vans, as in cities they are the dominant form of transport by volume.
