Engineering for Precision Agriculture
Date:
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 - 13:00
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Prof Salah Sukkarieh, Dr Tim Parsons
Venue:
Live Online Webinar
Synopsis:
With the world population predicted to increase by 2 billion by 2050, there is an increasing need to produce more food with the same land area. Precision agriculture, sometimes described as the third agricultural revolution, uses new technologies to optimise the use of inputs such as water, fertiliser and fuel in farming, leading to improved yields and reduced inputs and cost. Some of the technologies used include robotics, big data, satellite imagery, drones and internet of things devices. Precision agriculture has been identified as a key technology in the transition to sustainable agriculture, for both high and low income countries. Our two speakers are both innovators pioneering engineering solutions for precision agriculture applications. This talk promises to be an inspiring look at this emerging area of practice. About the Speakers Prof Salah Sukkarieh is Professor of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at the University of Sydney, and CEO of Agerris, a new Agtech startup company developing autonomous robotic solutions to improve agricultural productivity and environmental sustainability. Dr Tim Parson is chief technical officer and design central facilitator from Food Agility CRC, a $150million+ innovation hub that is creating new digital technologies and services to benefit the Australian agrifood industry.
A Study of the Implications of Different Electric Vehicle (EV) Uptake Scenarios in WA
Date:
Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 12:00
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Khush Dodhia-Shah
Venue:
Webinar
Synopsis:
This presentation is from the speaker's thesis which looks at different electric vehicle (EV) case studies in WA, relating an EV attributed electric load at different market penetrations of EVs in WA, and how the South-West Interconnected System (SWIS - the WA power grid) will deal with that. Several factors are considered including usage behaviours of EV drivers to understand the impact across SWIS daily load curves, considering peak demand and capacity. It is done in the form of a model which combines the variables and outputs the daily grid demands that will need to be met under the various scenarios.
Rapid Transition to Green Hydrogen
Date:
Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Ms Claire Johnson, Dr. Attilio Pigneri, Professor Evan Gray
Venue:
On-Line
Synopsis:
Australia’s hydrogen sector is quickly gathering pace with unprecedented levels of interest from industry backed by enthusiastic governments. Claire will present the key projects, players and motives behind hydrogen’s rapid ascent, including the international landscape driving Australia’s great hydrogen hope.
Quarterly Carbon Market Report - Trends and Opportunities
Date:
Friday, September 18, 2020 - 15:00
Event:
ACT Events
Presenter:
Mark Williamson
Venue:
Webinar
Synopsis:
The Clean Energy Regulator’s Quarterly Carbon Market Report provides a regular view of supply and demand across the carbon markets they administer - large scale generation certificates, small scale technology certificates, and Australian Carbon Credit Units - and explores key factors that influence market performance. The Report from Quarter 1 2020 shows emissions reduction and renewables performed strongly and the renewable energy and emissions reduction industries have shown resilience despite the economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Come and hear from Mark Williamson, Executive General Manager of the Clean Energy Regulator, on the highlights from the Quarter 2 report and the trends and opportunities in Australia’s carbon markets.
Fire, flood, storm and cyclone: applying science to the challenge
Date:
Wednesday, August 19, 2020 - 16:00
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Dr Alan Finkel
Venue:
Webinar
Synopsis:
The tragic and destructive bushfires of the 2019-2020 Black Summer across south-eastern Australia pose a range of challenges for the nation’s scientists. In the face of the combined forces of nature, climate, demographics, and limited resources, can science make a real difference? What sort of research do we need to do now to prepare us for the natural hazard impacts of tomorrow? The value of research in solving such national problems is the focus of an annual oration next month, to be delivered in a live webinar by Australia’s Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel. The free public talk – Fire, flood, storm and cyclone: applying science to the challenge - is on Wednesday 19 August from 4-5pm (AEST) and is presented by the Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre as part of National Science Week.
Climate Change Challenges – An Engineering Perspective
Date:
Friday, July 24, 2020 - 12:00
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Venue:
National Webinar
Synopsis:
This online collaborative event, jointly organised by Engineers Australia and the UWA Public Policy Institute, will bring together engineering professionals and researchers to explore the challenges presented by climate change and the likely impacts on engineering standards, training and policy.
Australian Construction and Demolition Waste Challenges and Opportunities
Date:
Monday, July 20, 2020 - 18:00
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Dr Tayyab Maqsood, Tom Laslett
Venue:
Webinar
Synopsis:
Unprecedented expenditure on Australian infrastructure upgrades and construction projects continues to generate enormous quantities of construction and demolition (C&D) waste, posing both challenges and opportunities for Australia's waste management industry.
Australian Construction and Demolition Waste Challenges and Opportunities
Date:
Monday, July 20, 2020 - 18:00
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Dr Tayyab Maqsood, RMIT and Tom Laslett, John Holland
Venue:
Live Online Webinar
Synopsis:
Unprecedented expenditure on Australian infrastructure upgrades and construction projects continues to generate enormous quantities of construction and demolition (C&D) waste, posing both challenges and opportunities for Australia's waste management industry. How does Australia stack up against the rest of the world when it comes to efficient management of our C&D waste and incorporation of circular economy principles? During this event, we will take a deep dive into the current state of affairs concerning Australian C&D waste management to understand the scale, actors and regulatory framework that characterises the industry. Our speakers will explore the current state of knowledge and practice concerning C&D waste management in Australia and abroad, each providing unique perspectives on the challenges and opportunities presented by Australian C&D waste including how these might best be addressed to improve economic, financial and sustainability outcomes.
Climate Change and the Ocean
Date:
Wednesday, June 17, 2020 - 11:30
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Professor Nathan Bindoff, Sarah Watson
Venue:
Webinar
Synopsis:
This webinar will consist of a combination of two (2) topics related to climate change and the ocean. The presentation will provide a relevant summary of climate change and ocean-related international scientific assessments and target/indicator development processes, to enable engineers to understand and utilise the data to create the required sustainable solutions. As such, this is a must-see webinar for engineers working in the ocean and coastal space.
