Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Mr Ian Thomas, Dr Graeme Pearman and Mr David Blowers
Venue:
Innovation Hub (lower level) Engineers Australia, L 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
Transformations to Australia's energy generation and consumption are being driven by the twin imperatives of climate change mitigation and technology innovation. Our electricity systems are under unprecedented scrutiny in the wake of the September 2016 blackout in South Australia. We are committed as a nation to achieve emissions reductions made following the 2015 Paris climate conference.  What is the role of Engineers in delivering these commitments and what are the transition risks? What scope is there to improve energy efficiency in key sectors such as buildings and transport. What policy measures are needed to meet challenges of the future?  This seminar will focus on these crucial issues."

Smart wastewater processes - leading the way in innovation
Date:
Thursday, September 3, 2015 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Peter Hillis (AECOM) and David Greeves (Barwon Water)
Venue:
John Connell Auditorium, 21 Bedford Street, North Melbourne
Synopsis:
Wastewater treatment consumes huge amounts of energy and contributes to some of the nation’s largest greenhouse gas footprints. As populations increase in Australia, daily flow wastewater volumes are increasing resulting in greater energy use in treatment processes. Increasing sludge end products is also becoming a trickier issue for water authorities to manage. How can engineers manage this sustainably and innovatively?
