Join the live renewables vs fossil fuel debate

ICE News

THE FUTURE of renewable power and its arch rival fossil fuel is to be debated at two free ICE events in Lincoln and London next month.

The first discussion will take place on 5 October in Lincoln and will explore 'Energy in the 21st Century'. Three speakers from the ICE energy board will address the issues surrounding carbon emissions and the future of coal production and transportation. Future power transmission will also be discussed.

The second event will be hosted by the Offshore Wind Farm Email Forum which brings together the Offshore Engineering Society, and ICE's maritime and energy boards. It will be held at the ICE's headquarters in London on 13 October.

The meeting will include presentations from energy board vice chair David Kerr on gravity structures and from British Wind Energy Association head of grid and technical affairs Richard Ford, who will discuss reliability of supply.

To attend, contact Kathryn Hyde-Bales on (020) 7665 2235 or visit the ICE website.
