Watch the webcast of today’s workshop on energy for sustainable science


Today marks the start of a workshop at CERN on energy for sustainable science at research infrastructures. You can watch today’s talks via webcast from 2pm CET.

This three-day workshop focuses on energy management strategies at research infrastructures worldwide. It follows on from the first edition of the workshop held at the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden in 2011.

Energy experts from public and private sectors are showcasing ways to recuperate waste heat, efficiently cool data centres and use green technologies and civil engineering solutions for sustainable campuses.

Today’s webcast talks begin with welcome speeches from the organisers (CERN, ERF and ESS) followed by plenary talks ranging from the energy policies of IRENA, the International Renewable Energy Agency, and the European Commission, to energy management in Japan, European innovation, smart systems and efficient data centres.
