Building Information Modelling - The future of designing green buildings and infrastructure
Date:
Thursday, September 19, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Liam Corscadden Australian Digital Engineering Lead for Urban Development & Regeneration for Arcadis, and Matt Drake, Digital Engineering Manager, Lendlease
Venue:
Harricks Auditorium Engineers Australia 8 Thomas street
Synopsis:
Building Information Modelling (BIM) utilises digital media to represent the physical and functional properties of a structure. BIM transcends the traditional 2D technical drawings to accommodate all 3 dimensions, while also enhancing the same with additional dimensions of time, cost, environmental sustainability and life cycle facility management. Join Mr. Liam Corscadden and Mr. Matt Drake in an informative session that will shed light on the world of BIM, its applications and its scope in Australia.
Tough Is Not Enough
Date:
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:30
Event:
S.A. Events
Presenter:
Steve Posselt
Venue:
Engineers Australia South Australia - Level 11, 108 King William Street, Adelaide SA 5000
Synopsis:
Steve Posselt will take you on an incredible journey with his wheeled kayak. The only person to have paddled up the Mississippi in a flood, Steve will have you spellbound as he makes his way to Paris for the COP21 Climate Summit. The climate change message, that is the science has not sunk in where it is needed. The message is correct but the messaging has failed. Steve will give you some clues as to how our imperfect brains work, and how to tailor communication approaches to suit.
Transitioning Built Environment to Zero Net Emissions by 2050
Date:
Wednesday, August 7, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Drushti Chandarana, Professor Sujeeva Setunge, Michael Li
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
This event explores emissions from infrastructure materials and how we might transition the sector to net zero emissions by 2050. When and how do we start planning for an orderly transition? What are the roles of Government and the market? Can we find the material and energy solutions to meet predicted demands?
Nishi Building Site Tour
Date:
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
ACT Events
Presenter:
Trevor Rosser & John Mudie
Venue:
Kendall Lane Theatre, 19 Marcus Clarke St, New Acton
Synopsis:
Join the Sustainable Engineering Society of Engineer's Australia on the 16th July to experience a behind the scenes tour of NewActon Nishi, one of Canberra's most iconic sustainable buildings. The site boasts a 6-star Greenstar rating, 5.5 star NABERS base-building energy rating, and 5 star NABERS water rating. Lead by the site's facilities management team, visitors will get the opportunity to learn about the day-to-day operation of a sustainable building, including the commercial HVAC plant, mixed-mode ventilation system, irrigated green facade, blackwater treatment plant, and the 400kW rooftop PV system.
Restorative Engineering - Rebuilding the Environment
Date:
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
William Glamore, Water Research Laboratory UNSW and Kylie Russell, Port Stephens Fisheries Institute
Venue:
Harricks Auditorium Engineers Australia 8 Thomas street
Synopsis:
Restorative engineering is a new approach to engineering of ecosystems to manage complex and endangered ecological communities. It uses a multi-disciplinary approach to understand natural systems so that they can be reconstructed biomimetically.
The Future of Dispatchable Power in Australia
Date:
Wednesday, May 22, 2019 - 18:00
Event:
ACT Events
Presenter:
Keith Lovegrove
Venue:
Canberra Auditorium, 11 National Circuit, Barton
Synopsis:
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) commissioned a team led by the ITP Energised Group (ITPE) working with the Institute of Sustainable Futures and ITK Consulting to examine the various options for providing dispatchable renewable electricity generation. As well as options such as combining wind and PV with batteries or pumped hydro, the study looked at concentrating solar thermal, bioenergy and other technologies. The grouped examined individual technologies and combinations to classify their characteristics, appropriate uses, costs and cost dependencies in a transparent and consistent way, so that the full range of options available to Australia is clearly enunciated. This 2018 study directly informed the progress of ARENA’s investment priority on delivering secure and reliable electricity. The results will be used to inform future grid integration studies and will be relevant to discussion of new policies and market settings for electricity in Australia following on from the Finkel review.
The Sustainable Hydrogen/Ammonia Economy
Date:
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Dr. Patrick Hartley, Mr Martin Hablutzel & Mr Tim Forcey
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
Clean hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier and feedstock that can enable deep decarbonisation across the energy and industrial sectors. Australia has the resources and skills to build an economically sustainable domestic and export hydrogen industry which can help meet emissions targets by replacing fossil fuels in transport, mining and power generation, and address concerns around energy security.
Energy Storage, Marine Permaculture, Food and Border Security, Ecosystem Regeneration, Oceanic Carbon Sinks
Date:
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:00
Event:
QLD Events
Presenter:
Brian Von Herzen, PhD
Venue:
Hawken Auditorium Engineering House 447 Upper Edward Street Brisbane , Queensland , 4000
Synopsis:
Brian Von Herzen, Ph.D will be speaking on the topic of needing affordable energy storage globally to allow for greater penetration of renewables, particularly photovoltaic, and then describe underwater compressed energy storage (UWCAES) and pumped thermal energy storage (PTES), how it relates to the 50% renewable energy usage commitment Queensland has committed to by 2030. Even 100% renewables will not be enough to restore a healthy climate.
