University to showcase cutting edge environmental research
Date:9/15/2008

Experts in engineering, chemistry, architecture, physics and economics will join forces at the University of Bath to discuss the climate change challenge. They will also host an exhibition of some of the region's cutting edge research in the fields of sustainable energy and the environment.

Today's event will also see the launch of the new Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment (I-SEE) by David Willetts MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills.

Mitigating the effects of climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing science today due to the complex nature of the problem. The University of Bath based I-SEE will combine the expertise of world-class researchers from diverse disciplines of science, engineering, economics, management and social science to address the problem.

It will also study the socio-economic impacts of climate change, inform policy and provide technological solutions to mitigate the effects of global warming, helping the UK to achieve its target of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 60% by 2050.

Some of the institute's ground-breaking research will feature at today's event.

Key research areas of the exhibition include:

  • Future sources of energy including improved energy storage, low cost solar cells and hydrogen fuel production and storage.
  • Energy efficiency and demand reduction including low carbon building materials such as hemp and straw, biodiesel from microalgae, and low carbon transportation.
  • The economics of climate change including green taxes, subsidies for renewable energy and environmental sustainability.
  • Social psychology of environmental issues, environmental ethics and promoting behavioural change.

The showcase will be opened by David Willetts MP and will attended by key industrialists, Research Councils, local and national government representatives and other key st
