CARBON CIRCULAR ECONOMY

EPISODE-1

The circular carbon economy (CCE) as is an integrated and inclusive approach to transitioning toward more comprehensive, resilient, sustainable, and climate-friendly energy systems. CCE employs a holistic, technology-neutral approach by incorporating clean technologies such as Carbon, Capture, Use and Storage (CCUS) to store carbon underground along with processes that turn CO2 into value-added products. Hydrogen also has a key application in CCE, carbon emissions from blue hydrogen, created from steam methane reforming, can be monitised or stored in combination with CCUS and other technologies.

ADVANCED NUCLEAR

EPISODE-2

Nuclear power provides a reliable source of low-carbon electricity. Pursuing large-scale nuclear, whilst also looking to the future of nuclear power through further investment in Small Modular Reactors and Advanced Modular Reactors. SMRs have the potential to provide cost competitive nuclear power as early as the 2030s and R&D on AMRs – the next generation of nuclear technologies can play a pivotal role.

 

Fusion energy can offer low-carbon, continuous, and effectively unlimited power generation. The basic science and engineering involved in the production of fusion energy is now well advanced and fusion energy is expected to play an important role over the longer term to decarbonise global energy production.

BATTERY RECYCLING

EPISODE-3

By 2035, most passenger cars will contain a lithium ion chemistry traction battery. Lithium ion batteries contain rare and valuable metals such as lithium, nickel, cobalt and copper, many of which are not found in the UK and a huge opportunity exists for lithium ion battery recycling in the UK. This webinar seeks to explore battery recycling opportunities, economics, processes, materials and recommendations.

BIODIVERSITY

EPISODE-4

Restoring our Biodiversity is key security a sustainable future. It will enable us to increase our standard of living without impacting the living world. Renew approaches to farming and halting to deforestation will enable our trees to thrive and absorb carbon emissions. Nature is our greatest ally and biggest inspiration and we need to balance life with nature in an effective manner.

BIO ENERGY INNOVATION

EPISODE-5

Biomass is unique amongst renewable technologies in the wide array of applications in which it can be used as a substitute for fossil-fuel based products and activities, from power generation to hydrogen production and even new forms of plastics. Along with its ability to deliver negative emissions, this makes biomass one of our most valuable tools for reaching net zero emissions.

 

There are a number of applications for BECCS across the economy, including clean hydrogen production, power generation, waste management and in heat for industrial processes and we need to ensure that it is deployed where it has the greatest value in reducing emissions.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

EPISODE-6

Accelerating the transition towards a regenerative growth model that gives back to the planet more than it takes, advance towards keeping its resource consumption within planetary boundaries, and therefore strive to reduce its consumption footprint and double its circular material use rate in the coming decade is essential to reach net zero targets. This episode seeks to evaluate a sustainable product policy framework, highlight key product value chains, enhanced waste policy, promoting circularity as a perquisite and driving the transition through research, innovation and digitalisation.

The electricity network is becoming more decentralised with numerous and smaller sites of generation alongside new sources of demand that we require a transformed and dynamic approach for a multi-directional system. Exploiting new forms of system flexibility will mean a lower generating capacity requirement the flexible approach will allow supply and demand to be shifted in time or location, so they are matched in the most efficient way – keeping costs down for consumers.

EPISODE-8

Modern digital infrastructure can underpin markets and optimise physical networks. This requires new ways of creating, collecting, analysing and sharing energy data from different sources. Data will help us to discover cheaper ways of delivering the energy we need by making information available to those who can provide solutions to reduce costs and improve services to consumers.  Open and secure data is also essential to the efficient integration of low-carbon technologies. This information can be combined with data from transport, homes and commercial buildings to enable whole-system strategic planning and investment decisions.

WASTE-TO-ENERGY

EPISODE-9

As the UK progresses to its ambitious 2035 recycling targets, a valuable untapped potential for energy-from-waste technologies exists if government pivots residual waste policy away from landfill and export and towards domestic EfW heat networks and carbon capture. Stronger policy signals from government could unlock billions of pounds of private investment and see UK energy from waste capacity increase to become the nation’s solution for non-recyclable waste, generating low carbon heat for half a million homes. This webinar episode aims to explore waste policy, climate and the environment and waste heat.

MATERIALS

EPISODE-10

The efficient and sustainable generation, storage, transmission and use of energy is arguably the key challenge facing society in the 21st century and is one in which physics can play a vital role. For most of the devices and systems that we rely on in our daily lives, such as computers, electricity grids, solar cells or batteries, the efficiency with which these devices use, transmit or store energy is still significantly lower than what is theoretically possible based on established physical limits. In all these areas there are exciting opportunities for developing new advanced energy materials and devices that increase efficiency significantly and, in this way, reduce the cost and improve the sustainability of energy systems.
