EVENT CONTENT -  PRESENTATIONS FOR AGI MEMBERS TO VIEW

Hosted by AGI Scotland in partnership with the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, we focused on the security of future energy demands. Sustainable supply requires a new approach. The grid itself needs to become smart, in addition to new technology managing demand. Understanding the needs of the citizen alongside environmental and policy challenges are key. All are highly dependent on a detailed geospatial understanding.

 

Plenary Speakers were:

Chris Stark is Head of the Scottish Government’s Electricity Division, managing the Scottish renewable energy strategy and the operation of the energy market in Scotland.  He previously headed the Strategy Unit, the Scottish Government’s central strategy team.  Chris joined the Scottish Government in 2009, following an early career in Whitehall.  He has wide experience in economic policymaking, following work in HM Treasury and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

 

 

Andy Kerr became the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation's Director in December 2010. A leading figure in the areas of low carbon policy and implementation, Andy uses his extensive experience of working with governments, businesses and academics to drive the strategic and practical development of the Centre. Previously, Andy worked in the private sector in the emerging international carbon and biofuel markets, working with companies to develop both strategic and practical management responses to emerging opportunities and legislation.

 

Professor Stuart Monro is a prominent Scottish geologist and science communicator. He graduated in Geology from Aberdeen University in 1970 and then received his PhD from the University of Edinburgh while embarking upon a lengthy career with the British Geological Survey, making a number of distinguished contributions to the understanding of the geology of central Scotland and the application of geology to environmental issues.
