Microgen '11 Conference

The 2nd International Conference on Microgeneration and Related Technologies.
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
4-6 April 2011

The University of Strathclyde in Glasgow is proud to host the Second International Conference in Microgeneration and Related Technologies - MICRoGEN `II. This year’s theme is “enabling a highly distributed energy future”, focusing on the diffusion of low-carbon, microgeneration technologies such as micro-CHP, PV, micro-wind, solar thermal, heat pumps and biomass heating within future, highly distributed energy systems.

The conference is an opportunity for the many stakeholders in the field from around the world to meet and exchange knowledge. Over fifty technical and non-technical papers have been submitted from sixteen different countries (including the US, Canada, Japan and many EU states) in themes such as developments in microgeneration and enabling technologies, practical experiences with microgeneration, integrating demand side management, integrating microgeneration within buildings, policy and planning for microgeneration and the societal impacts of microgeneration.

Industry Day - April 5th 2011 On April 5th, a full day of the conference is industry-focused. The day features plenary presentations from a range of high quality speakers in five themed sessions:

1. policy and markets for microgeneration;

2. lessons from technology deployments;

3. developments in technologies;

4. engaging business, householders and communities;

5. network integration - bringing it all together (a DERLab workshop).

Organisations presenting include E.ON, SSE, Scottish Power, The Energy Savings Trust (UK), Toshiba (Japan), The Ground Source Heat Pump Association (UK), The University of Tokyo, Senertec/Baxi (Germany/UK), Community Energy Scotland, UK Power Networks, A123 Systems (US) and Yanmar Energy Systems (Japan). The Industry Day offers an invaluable opportunity for interest groups including manufacturers, designers, installers, end-users, the research community and policy makers to network and discuss the key challenges facing microgeneration in the UK and internationally.
