CIGRE UK Women’s Network
25th June 2020 | 13:00 – 17:00 | Online event by Zoom
For special times, we are using the new “norm” to meet together, so the next CIGRE UK Women’s Network led gathering kindly sponsored by BakerHicks is a 4-hour fully online event focusing on clean technologies. As usual, we equally welcome both men and women from the engineering sector.
The zero carbon system operation of the electricity system and its network assets requires a fundamental change in how these are designed to operate, integrating newer technologies right across the system, from large scale offshore wind to domestic scale solar panels and increased demand side participation, by using smart digital systems for real-time management and control.
The first session will focus on clean technologies and how these are and could be evolving in a world post COVID-19. Our main speaker, Danielle Lane, Vattenfall UK Country Manager, will present the challenges and compromises of offshore wind development and how innovation is driving new opportunities. Our panelists, Gianluca Peviani, Dr. Heinz Sittler and Sina Beckmann will then detail some existing and new forms of clean technologies: how non-performing offshore oil platforms can be modified into powerful hydroelectric power plant, how hydrogen can soften the imbalances between electricity production and consumption and how to achieve low-carbon automotive supply chains by enabling, testing and scaling alternative clean technologies.
The second session will be another soft skill workshop with Robert Kahn. “Underlying concepts supporting the leadership model” will focus on the impact equation: Impact = Quality X Acceptance, managing our energy while removing a potential layer of conflict, and entertaining all “offers” while remaining assertive. This builds on the LeaderLike model introduced during our March event which will be summarized for new participants.
The third session will feature online networking with opportunities for participants to split into different virtual breakout rooms, each room being led by a panelist who will conduct a deep-dive into a clean technology topic addressing additional questions interactively.
The event is organised by the CIGRE UK Women’s Network for which a modest fee to register with payment by credit card only will be required (7-day refund before the event policy applies). Participation is limited due to the networking opportunity offered within each breakout rooms, so please book early!
