I-SEE Sustainable Energy & the Environment webinars

A series of public webinars with academic, industry, and policy experts on energy, sustainability, and the environment.

About the webinars

Hear what the experts have to say and join the conversation at our free environmental webinars.

Our popular webinars, chaired by Tim Mays, Professor of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University, cover the latest issues and areas of debate in the field of sustainable energy and the environment.

We invite experts from academia, industry and policy work to share their findings and lead vibrant discussions across a wide range of subject areas. These include:

  • natural sciences, engineering and technology
  • social, government, political and economic sciences
  • public and policy engagement
  • regulation
  • industrial, business, and international dimensions

Occasionally, webinars take the form of interviews with Professor Mays, like this interview with The Rt Hon. the Lord Deben about his role as Chair of the Climate Change Committee, and his career.

Whatever form they take, a compelling feature of I-SEE webinars is the opportunity for attendees to submit online questions to speakers.

All of our webinars are free and open to the public. They run every other Tuesday from 4.30pm to 5.30pm during Semester 1 (October to December) and Semester 2 (February to April).

Webinars are hosted online, using Zoom Webinars.


See what some attendees have said about our webinars.

'The webinar was impeccably organised, promoted, and chaired. I enjoyed the experience greatly and have had many positive comments following the event highlighting the reach and professionalism of the organisers.'

Professor Lorraine Whitmarsh MBE, Director of the Centre for Climate Change & Social Transformations (CAST), University of Bath.

'It was a pleasure speaking at the I-SEE Sustainable Energy & the Environment Webinar Series. I felt well looked after by the organizing team. The talk itself went smoothly and I got great questions from both the moderator the audience'.

Professor Chukwumerije Okereke, Professor in Global Governance and Public Policy, School for Policy Studies, University of Bristol.

'I have now given 3 Energy & The Environment Webinars (and previously seminars) on different topics. They provide a fantastic opportunity to connect researchers on different interdisciplinary themes, particularly connecting Bath’s work to external organisations. The conversations in the room have been invariably stimulating and thought provoking (how good research discussion should be!). They have led to longer term interactions with key academics and collaboration on subsequent research projects'.

Professor Patricia Thornley BSC, DPhil, FREng, Director, Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute / Director, Supergen Bioenergy Hub / Editor in chief, Biomass and Bioenergy, Aston University.

'The I-SEE webinars provide an excellent insight from leading scholars on a diverse range of subjects concerning sustainable energy and the environment. I commend these webinars to all those who have an interest in these important concerns of our time'.

Professor Stuart Irvine, Director of the Centre for Solar Energy Research (CSER) in the Department of Engineering, Swansea University .
