TEDDINET Annual Stakeholder Meeting 2015

‘Reducing Energy Demand with Smart Buildings’

TEDDINET’s second Annual Meeting ‘Reducing Energy Demand with Smart Buildings’ was held in conjunction with Innovate UK and The KTN Built Environment. It took place in London’s Canary Wharf on 12th and 13th October 2015. The event brought together 200 people from academia, industry and policy to explore how research and innovation are creating new technologies and applications for reducing energy demand with smart buildings.

Keynote speeches provided perspectives from policy (Craig Lucas from DECC), the market (Jeremy Towler from BSRIA), customers (Damian Coulton from the Energy Saving Trust) and manufacturers (Howard Porter from BEAMA). A Panel Debate on ‘Smart buildings, separating the hype from reality’ shared insights from Ian Ellis (Siemens), Jean Waring-Thomas (Utilitywise), Duncan Botting (Global Smart Transformation) and Liz Reason (Green Gauge Trust). Workshop sessions enabled participants to discuss the realities of smart technologies, to identify future funding priorities, and to consider foresight and finance. Presentations and posters from a range of TEDDINET projects and Innovate UK-funded projects showcased the latest in research and innovation from both academia and industry.
