On Wednesday the 9th of June we had a successful virtual Launch Event of the EPSRC funded INTEGRATE project. Over 50 participants joined us for an introduction and an overview of the work to date on this project.
The first hour of the event was dedicated to short presentations from the four research groups. These presentations covered a general project overview and how the different work packages fit together as well as introductions from the individual groups. The presentation slides used by the speakers can be found at the bottom of this post.
During the second hour, our industrial and international partners gave a brief pitch about their interest in the project and how they can support the work of the academic teams. It was great to hear that they are as excited about the project as we are. We thank them for their enthusiasm and support and we are looking forward to explore this timely and important research area with them over the next years.
Finally, we would like to thank the EPSRC for supporting this ambitious project in the area of smart integration of seasonal thermal energy storage for the decarbonisation of the energy system.
