The Benefits and Value of Integrated Energy Systems

18th February 2016, 13:00 to 14:00, E245, School of Engineering & Computing Sciences, Professor Geoff Williams

Energy Efficient Systems are more often than not based on off-the-shelf product cobbled together in a unoptimised fashion. It is a tick box approach to delivering built environments, BREEAM being a prime example of this. This talk will discuss this approach, consider different approaches, and explore the challenges facing complex integrated energy efficient environments and how these may be overcome. It will finish by presenting two community programs which have had a significant impact for the communities and demonstrates how working together is important.

Professor Williams is an internationally recognised industrial expert in solid state lighting (ssl) technology, especially organic leds. He has a proven track record of delivering both research and development programmes and public/private fundraising, leading a UK consortium of industry and academia.

He is also an Honorary Professor to Durham Energy Institute and Durham University’s Physics department, an industrial advisory board member for an academic Visible Light Communications EPSRC programme, North East Energy Leadership Council, BIS’s Printed Electronics Leadership Group, and Photonics21 working groups on lighting and systems. An expert assessor and reviewer for the EU DG Connect’s Smart cities and ICT Photonics groups, as well as for the UK Technology Strategy Board. And finally an advisor on emerging lighting systems for the ESP KTN.
