Deborah Greaves, Professor of Ocean Engineering and Director of the UK’s Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy Hub joins this 'Fishbowl' conversation on net-zero energy systems during the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26)

4 November marks 'Energy Day', during which UK Research and Innovation Supergen programme will be hosting a public 'fishbowl' conversation at the Ramshorn Theatre, central Glasgow.

A 'fishbowl' conversation is a participant driven meeting designed for mass-engagement, where an initial set of panellists swap out over time for other members, enabling multiple viewpoints and perspectives to be aired and offering opportunity for a variety of participants to engage. The conversation will focus on developing and interrogating public visions for a net-zero energy system, based upon the six areas of Supergen research that furthers sustainable power distribution and supply:

  • offshore renewables
  • solar
  • energy networks
  • bioenergy
  • hydrogen and fuel cells
  • energy storage

This will be a unique opportunity to hear the perspectives of a diverse set of members of the public and understand the implications of net-zero energy systems for society.
