Presentation to the 2nd Sino British Workshop on the Future of Energy Storage Technologies and Policy

Jeremy has been invited to give a presentation to the 2nd Sino British Workshop on the Future of Energy Storage Technologies and Policy in Beijing, China 25th Р26th May. This is a joint seminar between the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Royal Academy of Engineering, hosted by Prof Jianlin Cao, Vice Minister of Science and Technology of the PRC.

The seminar follows a visit by the delegation from the Chinese Academy of Sciences for a joint workshop exploring the science, engineering and national policy requirements for developing and implementing energy storage technology. The Chinese delegation was led by Professor Li Jinghai, Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Professor Richard Williams FREng, from the University of Leeds, chaired the workshop. The aim was to enable delegates from industry, academia and government to highlight key strategic needs in energy storage research and identify areas for bilateral cooperation.

The Chinese Ambassador, H.E. Liu Xiaoming, gave a welcome address and highlighted that the future growth of China lay in green energy and low-carbon development. He noted that the Chinese Government’s recently drafted ’12th Five Year Plan’ includes improving and diversifying the energy mix, reforming the nation’s patterns of energy production and keeping energy consumption under control.

Two Government Chief Scientific Advisors also spoke at the workshop. Professor David MacKay and Professor Brian Collins CB FREng, outlined the UK national energy strategy. Speakers from the UK also included representatives from Imperial College London, National Grid and the Energy Technologies Institute, who discussed current storage capacity and exchanged ideas for future plans with some of China’s top engineers and scientists working in the energy field. The workshop also included a poster session and discussions on the electricity grid and transport.

The Beijing event will deal with UK Government policy framework, New Low carbon technologies , Electric Vehicle and Hybrid technology and Sodium Sulphur Batteries for Large Scale Energy Storage Applications. Jeremy will deal with Cross Border Regulation of new technology and the consequences of a failure to regulate.
