LPG for Development Summit – Achieving SDGs with LPG @ ONLINE EVENT
Nov 2 @ 2:25 pm – 3:35 pm

It is estimated that some three billion people still use charcoal or other high-polluting biomass fuels for cooking on open fires or simple stoves. The World Health Organization further estimates that nearly four million of these people die prematurely each year from illnesses attributed to the polluted household air created from these fuels. LPG offers an immediate solution. The use of LPG as a cooking fuel would prevent this devastating number of unnecessary deaths, it would also slow deforestation and desertification, and bring a greater level of equality for women. The LPG For Development Summit, which is due to take place as two one hour sessions at e-LPG Week 2020, will look the leading role of LPG in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, especially UN SDG3 (health), SDG5 (gender) and SDG7 (access to modern energy). e-LPG Week 2020 is a fully virtual event taking place from 2nd-6th November 2020.

RUSHLIGHT SHOW – virtual
Mar 10 – Mar 11 all-day

The 12th Rushlight Show, kindly headline sponsored by Innovate UK, is taking place on Wednesday and Thursday 10-11 March 2021 as a virtual event with all the interactions of a physical event.  Other sponsors confirmed so far are Granted Consultancy, Planet First and London South Bank University.  It is the leading event for cleantech companies and sustainable solutions to meet investors and financiers, corporate customers, government departments, advisers and intermediaries.

We have delayed running this event from its normal timing as we have sought a platform which can provide all the functionality that the physical event has provided so effectively in the past.  This has now been found and you will be able to have arranged meetings, live chat and on demand video chat with all the delegates throughout the event.  This includes impromptu one-to-one video chats similar to private meetings at an event.  This really does mirror a physical event and is a true step-change from most of the virtual event styles that prevailed for much of last year.

The event highlights are:

  1. The Innovation Showcase of the Cleantech Conference, with 40 companies presenting their latest cleantech and sustainability innovations, all available on demand throughout the event.
  2.  The Sustainable Solutions Market Panel, where organisations present their market-ready products and services directly to a panel and audience of leading sustainability and procurement representatives from UK organisations who are seeking to further their supply chain sustainability and resilience.
  3. The Exhibition, incorporating the Innovate UK and other Showcases, together with the poster exhibition, amounting to over 100 of the latest innovations in cleantech and sustainability.
  4. UK Energy session, which will set out the pathway to Net Zero 2050, with a particular focus on hydrogen, CCUS and bioenergy.  This is a must attend event for anyone with an interest in UK power generation, the energy market, transport systems and fuels.
  5. The Natural Capital & Resourceful session, in association with the Circular Economy Club, with a keynote covering the state of our natural capital, with particular reference to biodiversity, air, sea and freshwater environments, woodland and soil.  The session will also provide a state of the nation address and discussion on the circular economy, its role in the Net Zero future, some of the successes so far and the key issues to be resolved.
  6. Private Investor Lounge for live investor pitches.
  7. Networking as you would do in a physical event with open and private bubbles, one-to-one, exhibitor interaction and business card introduction, all on video chat, as well as live chat and scheduled meetings.

The total audience for the whole event is expected to exceed 500 and will include cleantech senior management, investors, advisers, corporate customers, sustainability professionals, key officials from government departments and local authorities, media, consultants specialising in the various sectors and other sector participants.

Full event details are available at www.rushlightevents.com/rushlight-show.  With delegate places for the whole Show starting at £50/ £100 plus VAT, this event is designed to be both informative and exceptional value for money.  Registration for all aspects of the event is HERE.

Companies interested in presenting in the Innovation Showcase of the Cleantech Conference, to the Sustainable Solutions Market Panel or in the private Investor Lounge pitching session merely have to register as a delegate(s) and then apply for one of the remaining slots.

Smart H2, Hydrogen Optimisation – WEBINAR @ Virtual Event
Mar 10 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The first in the series of Hydrogen GenComm webinars on March 10 is titled: ‘Smart H2, Hydrogen Optimisation’.

The webinar will focus using Green H2 and optimising its use economically, environmentally, commercially and socially as SMART H2, and accelerating our energy transition journey to a zero CO2 destination.

Dr Bodo Groß, from GenComm partner IZES gGmbH will open the webinar setting the scene for Hydrogen optimisation.

GenComm Programme Manager Paul McCormack will moderate the webinar.

Michael Reinstaedtler of Robert BOSCH gGmbH will speak on ‘Optimising Green H2 for Greening Industrial Energy’

Hermann Guss, Network Manager, Automotive Saarland, will speak on SMART H2.

Jan Hildebrand, Head of Department of Environmental Psychology at IZES gGmbH will speak on ‘Public Acceptance and Participation concerning Hydrogen applications’.

The theme of the webinar is to show how we can produce and use green hydrogen in an industrial environment in an economic way. Michael Reinstaedtler will present on the work of BOSCH in Homburg about sector coupling of different applications based on Hydrogen. Hermann Guss will explain a broader context for the city of Homburg through coupling of different industrial sites in Homburg. Jan Hildebrand will show how we can achieve successful projects through various participation processes.

Paul Mc Cormack stated: “Hydrogen is the catalyst driving Europe’s energy transition. Optimising this journey delivery, SMART H2 through valorisation of the Hydrogen supply chain, production, storage and use is key to creating a successful Hydrogen Europe. The GenComm Spring series of H2 webinars is focused on SMART H2 looking at how we can optimise Green H2 to deliver increased benefits across the Hydrogen chain, accelerating cost reductions for hydrogen production, transmission, distribution, retail and end applications.”

Dr Bodo Groß, said: “Within the last three years we have successfully established three pilot plants in the NWE (North West Europe) area. This has resulted in many other Hydrogen activities and projects to put the regions involved in an excellent position with regard to the application and use of Hydrogen-based technologies.”

Michael Reinstaedtler, said: “Climate change is one of the biggest challenges for mankind. But we can make a difference by heading towards the Hydrogen Society. Bosch Homburg is building up a Connected Hydrogen Cycle as a blueprint for sector coupling. This is truly ‘Invented for life’. “

Hermann Guss, said: “Hydrogen is an important and valuable element for a future green economy, so we have to use it smart.”

Jan Hildebrand said: “The transformation towards a hydrogen economy system is only possible with society-therefore we need participatory planning approaches.”

Since 2017 Michael Reinstaedtler has been the Head Of Manufacturing Engineering FCEV Components and Connected eH2-Cycle, at the BOSCH plant in Homburg.

Previously he was the Head of Development Common Rail Rail Bosch Plant Jihlava (Czech Republique), Head of Lead Plant Development Common Rail Injector and Rail, Bosch Plant Homburg, Senior Expert & Technical Coordinator for High Horse-Power Fuel-Injection Equipment, Bosch Plant Hallein (Austria) , Team Leader for Mission Profiles & Validation, Bosch Stuttgart, and a Reliability Engineer, Bosch Stuttgart.
