Newcastle professor says, MicroGrids can light the way for UK’s low carbon transition

???????????????????????SML-MicroGrid-lec

MicroGrids can light the way for UK’s low carbon transition, said Professor Philip Taylor, Director of the Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability (NIReS) at a public lecture in London on 20 March 2014.

Hosted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, this lecture titled ‘MicroGrids: Niche Application or Fundamental to Future Energy Systems?’ covered the key issues concerning MicroGrids, providing some technical detail on how they can be realised.

The following is based on his lecture:

UK’s energy sector will face challenging times in the future, in a number of areas including affordability, sustainability, security, decarbonisation of electrical networks, ageing assets and severe weather events. And reinforcing the MacroGrid is not a practical option.

On the other hand, MicroGrids have much potential, including increased resilience, reduced control burden on the MacroGrid, community involvement, reduced reliance on centralised plant and a learn-and-scale-up model. Besides, when a large number of MicroGrids are aggregated together, they would resemble a virtual power station.

Currently, microgrids are mainly operating in a couple of niche areas, such as islands, universities, military and demonstration models. A significant step forward in moving out of these niche areas is breaking their

conventional static boundaries. An emerging solution based on a biologically-inspired novel concept is the autonomic MicroGrid, which has flexible boundaries.

There are technical challenges to overcome but the future for microgrids looks promising and they have the potential to light the way for UK’s low carbon transition.

BREEAM Awards 2014 | Nottingham’s Energy Technology Building wins Education category award

SML-Nottingham-EnergyTechBldgsThe Energy Technology Building of the University of Nottingham won the Education category award at the BREEAM Awards presentation held in early March 2014 in London.

Launched in 1990, BREEAM (the BRE Environmental Assessment Method) – the world’s first environmental assessment method – is now used in over 70 countries worldwide, offering a variety of social, environmental and economic benefits to its clients.

Energy Technologies Building (ETB) of the University of Nottingham is an exemplar low carbon building dedicated to research and development in sustainable energy technologies.

Built using energy efficient materials and designed to minimise demands for heating, cooling, lighting and ventilation, this showcase building demonstrates a range of low carbon technologies which leads the way towards the government’s ‘zero carbon’ target for all new public buildings by 2018.

Its key elements include daylighting, thermal insulation, external shading, renewable energy, rainwater harvesting, responsible material selection, electric car charging points and ecological habits in the roof.

Designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, BREEAM’s highest level for environmental sustainability, this building generates more energy than it requires, heating the neighbouring Institute of Mental Health Institute Building.

Newcastle Sustainability Research Director’s Public Lecture | MicroGrids: Niche Application or Fundamental to Future Energy Systems?

SML-MicroGrid-lecProfessor Philip Taylor, Director of the Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability (NIReS), will deliver a public lecture titled ‘MicroGrids: Niche Application or Fundamental to Future Energy Systems?’ hosted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers at 1 Birdcage Walk, Westminster, London SW1H 9JJ on 20 March 2014.

Professor Taylor, who also holds the Chair of Electrical Power Systems in the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Newcastle University, researches on the challenges associated with the widespread integration and control of distributed/renewable generation in electrical distribution networks.

In the coming years electrical networks and energy systems in general are likely to face formidable challenges due to a number of factors such as increased challenges to resilience from worsening extreme weather events and increased renewable and distributed generation.

Responses to these challenges are mainly two fold: centralised and decentralised. Centralised approaches involve strengthening the prevailing system of large centralised power stations and distribution and transmission physical assets. They seek economies of scale and involve transporting energy over relatively long distances out to passive consumers using centralised control architectures.

On the other hand, in decentralised approaches, generation and load are more closely located and controlled while consumers engage in demand response and system operation more proactively. Due to its benefits such as better resilience, energy efficiency and power quality, decentralised approach has attracted a growing interest recently.

MicroGrids, which fall under the second category, are sections of distribution network including several micro-generators, distributed energy storage devices and controllable loads. Through intelligent co-ordination of micro-generators, energy storage units coupled with demand side response techniques, micro grids could significantly improve the commercial value and environmental impact of distributed renewable energy sources and could become fundamental to future energy systems.

As energy systems become more complex and the levels of uncertainty increase, autonomic MicroGrids may emerge. With dynamically changing boundaries, they would exhibit self-organising, self-healing and self-managing properties.

This lecture will cover the key issues concerning MicroGrids, providing some technical detail on how they can be realised.

The lecture is free and open to all but require advance booking (please see event page below).

Online learning is a driver for sustainability, says Dr Speight at HEA-Nottingham seminar

SML-Nottingham-MOOC-seminar

Online learning is a driver for sustainability, said Dr Sarah Speight at a seminar titled ‘Online and open: modelling sustainability and ‘greening the academy’ through E-learning’ at the University of Nottingham on 5 March 2014.

Hosted as part of the Workshop and Seminar Series 2013/2014 of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), the seminar aimed to support colleagues engaged in developing courses on Sustainability, face-to-face and blended as well as online.

The day started with a welcome and introduction by Terry McAndrew (Academic Lead, Digital Literacy, HEA) and Dr Sarah Speight (academic lead of Nottingham’s Green Academy team).

The development team of the ‘Nottingham Open Online Course’ (‘NOOC’) delivered talks on different aspects of sustainability and e-learning with a particular focus on the university:

  • Helen Whitehead: NOOCing Nottingham: a sustainable approach to Open Online Courses,
  • Andy Beggan and Steve Stapleton: Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Sustainability
  • Dr Sarah Speight: MOOCing the NOOC: taking Sustainability to a global audience
  • Dr Neil Sinclair and Dr Mike Clifford: Online learning for Sustainability – strengths and weaknesses

They shared the learning arising from the successful running of the first ‘NOOC’ called ‘Perspectives on Sustainability’, key insights from both development and delivery and the process of translating the internally-facing NOOC into an externally-facing MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) for the Futurelearn platform.
