Energy

Due to the high number of abstracts received on the topic of Energy the organisation decided to create an independent track on Energy.

Energy Futures – the energy sector is in transition and subject to competing pressures. Energy policy essentially lies at the intersection point of three concerns – economic growth and affordability, reliability and security of societal services and environmental protection locally and globally. The challenge is to address all three concerns simultaneously. Some trends are dominant in current thinking: greater electrification, increased use of renewable energy, and a range of energy motivated innovations in transport. Milton Keynes is particularly strong in efforts to establish smart electricity grids (see Smart Cities Track) and in transport innovation both for public transport and individual mobility.
