GreenSCIES - Green Smart Community Integrated Energy Systems Project
Catarina Marque

Click here to book your free place for the event


GreenSCIES aims to deliver low carbon, affordable energy through a novel smart energy system that connects flexible electricity demands such as heat pumps and electric vehicles to intermittent renewable energy sources such as solar power.

The project will investigate the feasibility of a 5th generation district heating and cooling network in Islington Council. Heating and cooling will be provided by heat pumps in buildings connected to a local network, which integrates thermal energy storage and waste heat recovered from a variety of available sources such as the London underground, electric substations, cable tunnels, sewers and datacentres.

The smart network will facilitate the transition to electric vehicles and vehicle to grid supply to make the most of intermittent renewable energy and ensure end-users always get the best tariff. Artificial intelligence will underpin the system optimisation and demand side response. Low carbon heating and cooling can be achieved by sharing heat between buildings and by shifting the timing of their demand to off-peak cheaper electricity; this requires a sophisticated control system and thermal energy storage.

The ultimate goal is to provide optimal and integrated solutions for highly efficient low cost energy systems for the local community. The concept and design study will confirm the system suitability to be replicated throughout the country and has the potential to become a world-leading example.

15.30– 16.00 Networking

16.00 – 17.00pm Presentation followed by Q&A

Location: London South Bank University, London


Requirements to join in a 'webinar'

A webinar is simply a broadcast of slides and live commentary to your internet connected computer. You do not need to be a computer whizz to join in a webinar - its almost as simple as watching TV.

The computer requirements are reasonably standard and will even work with a smart phone or tablet computer. You do need to be able to listen to audio (through headphones or loudspeaker). You do NOT need a microphone or camera for our webinars - you can type in questions to the speaker as we go along.

We normally use a service called GotoWebinar - this requires a small free piece of software (downloaded automatically to your PC or download an app on your phone/tablet), and from our experiences should work with little or no technical intervention. Company firewalls sometime cause a problem so please TRY IT IN ADVANCE.

The simplest way is to try out a test webinar NOW
