What is the annual meeting?

At the inaugural annual meeting of the Energy Centre, our Chair Prof. Stefaan Simons will discuss what the Centre has achieved in recent times and lay out the path forward.

The meeting will also launch the energy and resource efficiency task group’s flagship publication: the good practice guide for chemical engineers looking to implement efficiency projects within their organisation.

This event is not just for members of the Energy Centre. If you are interested in energy and resource efficiency, or our work on carbon capture and storage and the future of oil and gas, this session is for you. The meeting will also be an ideal introduction to the work of the Energy Centre for those who might be interested in getting involved in future projects.

What is the energy and resource efficiency work?

The energy and resource efficiency good practice guide sets out guiding principles and provides practical advice for executing a successful project at any level of your organisation. It covers the whole process through scoping the boundaries of what you will consider, building a business case, overcoming common obstacles, and ensuring the best protection for all environmental systems.  

The Energy Centre is also publishing a series of case studies for chemical engineers that describe innovative energy and resource efficiency projects in various sectors and at all levels. We are always looking to expand our range, so if you know of a project, process, model, technology or idea that others could learn from, please contact us at energycentre@icheme.org.

With increasingly severe warnings about the impact of human activities on our climate and planet, there has never been a more crucial time to maximise our efficiency and minimise our footprint. Energy and resource efficiency is a vital tool in addressing these issues, simultaneously reducing both demand and emissions while creating cost savings. Chemical engineers are uniquely positioned to address these challenges, and we hope to assist you in creating positive change 

What comes next?

The Energy Centre intends to host a series of workshops around the world exploring how energy and resource efficiency can contribute to protecting planetary systems, meeting Paris climate targets, and stimulating a more circular economy. Details and registration links to follow.

If you would like the Energy Centre to consider your area for a workshop, please let us know as soon as possible.
