University of Bath

Coordinated Development of New Energy Technologies and Multi-Energy Internet

This workshop brings together researchers from the UK and China to explore the challenges and opportunities of Energy Internet development.

22 Oct 20179.00am
25 Oct 20175.00pm

Under the British Council Researcher Links scheme the University of Bath and Shanghai Jiao Tong University will be holding a cross-disciplinary workshop coordinated by Professor Furong Li and Professor Yiwu Weng with contributions from other leading researchers.

Since the introduction of the transformative concept of Energy Internet, it has fundamentally changed the view of the society towards energy exploration, transportation and utilisation, accompanied by fundamental revolutions in the energy sector. However, during this transition, there are many accompanying technical, regulatory, political and societal challenges to be resolved.

The workshop has three key objectives:

  • characterisation and identifying knowledge gap between components and energy systems
  • technical and commercial tools for managing the energy internet
  • informing the development of future technologies and energy internet
  • a networking platform for assisting career development for early-career researchers

All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Newton Researcher Links programme. If you would like to apply to attend please complete the application form (by clicking 'register for this event') and email this to or before 30 June 2017.
