Oxford Talks // Conference on Localising Food Systems: The food-energy-water nexus issues of re-distributed manufacturing

This conference is intended to stimulate exchange and debate about the related issues in re-distributed manufacturing (RDM), food systems, and food-energy-water nexus issues at enterprise, local and regional levels. This event will be truly multidisciplinary, welcoming contributions from engineering, agriculture, natural sciences and social sciences. It will also encourage debate and share perspectives with business, local authorities and stakeholders in the food, energy and water sectors.

The conference will offer opportunities to:

  • Showcase research in these areas including the results from our Food, Energy, Water Local Nexus Network (LNN) through plenary talks and poster presentations
  • Examine key research questions for future exploration, with a view to establishing potential research collaborations through structured breakout discussions
  • Foster the extension of the community of researchers and stakeholders for sustainable local food-energy-water nexuses through face-to-face networking during the lunch and drinks sessions.

Conference // Water Storage and Hydropower Development for Africa

The connection of energy and water is most obvious in electricity generation through hydropower. Plus dams have an important impact on the environemtn, on water availability upstream and downstream, and thus on food production and food security. The AFRICA 2019 conference will bring together industry professionals in Namibia, a country with a variety of dams, to discuss water and energy issues relevant to Africa.

Session at EGU General Assembly 2019 // Hydropower and Other Renewable Energy Sources: Integration and Planning amid the Water-Energy Nexus

The transition to a low-carbon economy and programs of nuclear power phase-out will require the development of innovative methods to integrate renewable sources of energy while minimizing the additional pressure on closely connected ecosystems. This session at the EGU General Assembly 2019 solicits contributions that describe, characterize, or model distributed renewable energy sources at different spatial and temporal scales that are relevant for the electricity systems, their interactions,...
