Add event to calendar vCal

The Alan Turing Institute (ATI) Energy Summit will focus on the requirements, challenges, and opportunities of data science applications for the energy sector. Specifically the Energy Summit will involve the users (or potential users) from industry, government and various stakeholder groups to discuss the challenges they are encountering in the energy sector in dealing with big data and diverse datasets, with a view to identifying opportunities and potential areas where the work of the ATI could have a high impact on the energy sector.

This 1-day Energy Summit is organised by the Energy@Cambridge Strategic Research Initiative at the University of Cambridge in partnership with The Alan Turing Institute. The event is sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council(EPSRC).

The ATI Energy Summit will be opened with a keynote address by the Institute Director Professor Andrew Blake, followed by panel and open discussion led by energy sector representatives from government, energy trade associations and industry.

Confirmed panel members include: 
-          John Batterbee (Energy Systems Catapult) 
-          Pete Davies (Uniper) 
-          Marieke Beckmann (National Physical Laboratories) 
-          Audrey Gallacher (Energy UK) 
-          Detlef Hohl (Shell) 
-          Chris Laurens (Shell) 
-          Ian Llewellyn (Department of Energy and Climate Change) 
-          Patrick Sachon (Met Office)
-          Rupert Wilmouth (Government Office for Science) 
-          Yoav Zingher (KiwiPower) 

Who should attend: The Energy Summit is suitable for anyone with an interest in how data is used in the energy sector with applications ranging from formulation of energy policy to management of energy infrastructure. A detailed understanding of data science is not required, but attendees will have the opportunity to network with and learn more about the activities of the ATI Joint Venture partners (Universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, Warwick and UCL) and the world leading researchers working on the analysis and application of big data and algorithm research.
