    Innovation, Sustainable Development - New Manifesto for SDG's’
    Emirates Environmental Group and Arabia CSR Network in collaboration with Clean Energy Business Council; Sponsored by EGA;It is said that meeting the interlinked global challenges of poverty reduction, social justice and environmental sustainability is the great moral and political imperative of our age. This imperative can only be fulfilled if there is a transformative change in our thinking and performance of innovation. Apart from science and technology, it precludes new ideas, institutions, practices, behaviours and social relations that shape scientific and technological development, purposes, applications and outcomes. Social and economic innovations are essential and must themselves become the drivers of change because we can no longer deliver growth under the old model.

     

    Click here to register.

    All of this will entail new institutions (or restructured old ones) that actively further the nexus of science & technology and located needs & demands, and the creation of new learning platforms, virtual and face-to-face. Investment should extend its focus from rudimentary science, to other aspects of the innovation system, including engineering, design, science services, and social entrepreneurship.

    Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, Dubai

    The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment of the UAE, the EU GCC Clean Energy Technology Network and the University of Birmingham in partnership with the Heriot-Watt University organise a two days EU -GCC event on Clean Cooling – the new “Frontier Market” for UAE and the GCC region , on 9-10 April in Dubai, UAE. 

    Context

    Two-thirds of UAE energy in the summer months is consumed by air-conditioning; at peak temperatures, this can rise to 95%. Across the Gulf, cooling represents a yearly fuel opportunity cost of roughly US$20 billion. But meeting the projected cooling demand growth in the GCC over the next 12 years is projected to cost approximately US$100 billion in new cooling capacity and over US$120 billion in new power capacity if existing pattern of technology deployment are maintained. Without intervention, reports predict Saudi Arabia could within the next decade be consuming more oil to drive air conditioning than it exports.

    Cooling loads are not just buildings and electricity.  In hot climates, air conditioning in public vehicles will consume more than 40% of a bus’ fuel. This energy demand is a major challenge for electric buses. Refrigerated trailers are cooled by a secondary diesel engine (transport refrigeration unit) that can emit up to six times as much nitrogen oxides (NOx) and 29 times as much particulate matter (PM) as the propulsion unit. As with air conditioning, demand for transport refrigeration is forecast to soar. The global cold chain market alone is projected to grow to $270Bn by 2022 (currently $190Bn) with the greatest increase in demand coming from the Middle East, as well as the rapid expansion in emerging markets such as China, India, and Brazil. In UAE, 80% of food is imported through global logistics chains.

    We don’t however simply need more efficient air-conditioners and fridges or transport refrigeration units; we need new integrated, system-level approaches to cooling, understanding the size and location of the multiple thermal, waste and wrong-time energy resources available and the novel energy vectors, thermal stores and the novel, clean cooling technologies appropriate for the societal, climate, and infrastructure context.

    Workshop objectives

    To develop new ideas and methods to address the cooling challenges of the region,  this “clean cooling” workshop is organised with in-country partners and key stakeholders (government, industry, energy users, academia and government) from the UAE, the GCC and the EU to better understand the opportunities linked to integrated, low-carbon, low emissions cooling systems and how to accelerate their deployment.  Findings and recommendations will help shape thinking in-country as well as feed into the first ever International Clean Cooling Congress to be held at the University of Birmingham in April (18th and 19th).

    The workshop intends to provide an overview of relevant best practices and technologies from the EU and the UAE/GCC.  The aim is to use the workshop as a catalyst to create dialogue and new EU GCC academic and industry collaborations to share knowledge; build capacity, underpin and galvanise novel “clean cooling” technology demonstration and advancement opportunities around the local and global challenge of sustainable cooling. In so doing, it will build on existing leadership and expertise in energy and specifically cooling across the two markets (UAE/GCC and EU) at a unique time where delivering clean, sustainable cooling is being recognised globally as key to our energy and environmental challenges.

    To stimulate the discussion, experts will present novel system level thinking as well as examples of a radical novel technologies for meeting both built environment and transport cooling demands.

    Our objectives from the event would include clear recommendations and next steps to

    • develop new sustainable, integrated system approaches to cooling (built environment but also the major demand of cooling in transport);
    • demonstrate and integrate emerging and existing technologies;
    • deliver solutions into the region;
    • identify and develop new technologies for local markets and global application.

    Technologies are now combining new ways of improving performance and productivity, offering benefits as well as challenges to which the people must respond. Leaders in both the public and private sectors must acknowledge the transformation and implications of rapid technological change and need to fine tune organizational strategies in the face of continuous evolution, ensure that their organisations always look ahead, and use technologies to improve performance. The impact of technology will become pervasive in the not too distant future, influencing our choice of where we live, what we use and how we operate, in effect defining the way we live, study, work and rest.

    This Panel Discussion will combine perspectives from government, business and academic representatives on three top technology themes: Autonomous transport, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Smart home technologies. It will address the convergence of new policy, regulations, products, processes and usage of breakthrough technology that will make technology adoption normative in tomorrow’s world.

    Heat demand in industrial processes is much greater than electricity demand (74% vs 26% respectively). In fact, globally, industrial heat demand outstrips total electricity demand in all sectors. 
     
    With this in mind, the World Bank's MENA CSP Knowledge & Innovation Program has organized a free-to-attend webinar to learn how CSH can help companies reduce their carbon footprint and save on fuel whilst maintaining optimum performance. The CEBC invites you to join this webinar.
     
    • What?  Free Webinar: CSH solutions available today for carbon-free industrial heat and steam generation
    • When? TuesdayMay 22, 2018 at 3pm Dubai time
    • Where? Online – Places are free but limited. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/2KnGOYy
     
    In this webinar, top industry experts will give you…

     

    • Practical case studies – hear how industrial processes are benefitting from CSH already;
    • In-depth analysis on whether solar is a better source of heat than fossil fuels today, considering how companies are currently meeting their heat requirements;

     

    • An assessment on which industries can benefit from CSH, including chemicals, food and beverage, mining, textiles, oil & gas, dairy, laundries, wood processing and many more; and
    • Payback time calculations for CSH projects today and the expected accumulated fossil fuel displacement over their lifecycle.
     
    Expert panelists include: Zaafir Waheed of ZED Solar, Siddharth Malik of Megawatt Solutions, and Svante Bundgaard of Aalborg CSP.

    Stranded assets in conventional electricity generation is an emerging issue for policymakers around the world.   The rapidly falling costs of renewable electricity generation (and decarbonization action in line with the Paris agreement) will result in very substantial asset stranding over time. This webinar will analyse what the options are for investors and policymakers.

    • How to calculate whether scrapping your conventional generation assets is cheaper than continuing to operate them
    • How fast is stranding going to happen?  Will investors realize how fast it is happening when vested interests and emotions are at stake, and few energy sector players have equal knowledge of all energy technologies?
    • What should policy-makers do?
