The next webinar in the series takes place on Thursday 24th June 2021 and will focus on ‘Energy optimisation and innovation for business’. Presented by Dr. Paul MacArtain and Dr. Fergal O’Rourke from CREDIT Technology Gateway.
The drive to decarbonise business will see the halving of emissions each decade to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Better environmental performance leads to improved resource efficiency and direct cost savings and can also increase access to customers who are increasingly demanding more environmentally friendly products and services. Better environmental performance will also increase the agility and resilience of the company to climate change impacts. The steps through energy efficiency, renewable energy, corporate sustainability and circular economies are linked and businesses can identify opportunities to address each of these areas.
The CREDIT gateway specialises in the technical feasibility, development and testing of energy technologies aimed at addressing these drivers. Dr. Paul MacArtain will outline how energy storage can assist with decarbonisation and efficiency and Dr. Fergal O’Rourke will describe some examples of energy product developments developed at DKIT which SMEs have commercialised.
