Enabling a systems approach for an effective UK Energy System transition with positive outcomes for society and the environment.
The UK Energy System faces some particular challenges as we embrace decarbonisation and seek to integrate a stream of innovations into effective solutions for the future.
There are many experts in the energy domain and many in systems engineering, but the fundamental purpose of this new interest group is to provide an opportunity for this expertise to be shared, promoting greater whole Systems Thinking in the sector. This is key if we are to unlock the significant benefits of a decarbonised energy system across the UK, and beyond.
Our core values are aligned to the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) and the UK Engineering Council's six guiding principles when making decisions that affect sustainability.
The six principles are as follows:
We expect to meet as a whole group three times per year at different venues around the UK. Throughout the year, we will progress through an agreed hit-list of activities and organise a range of supporting events as required. As and when a need for a particular work product is identified, we may spin off a dedicated Working Group to develop it.
