Virtual participation at the MEMENTO workshop in Cuernavaca, Mexico
11 October 2019
John Broderick presented Tyndall Manchester research in the area of smart grids and electricity decarbonisation to the MEMENTO workshop in Cuernavaca, Mexico. This was a gathering of researchers, industrialist and government officials.
It is hoped that this workshop will spark research collaboration on projects and PhD study between the institutions invited and the University. The workshop was led by Dr Alex Martinez-Cesena from Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Profs Crossley, Levi and Wang attended in person, leading specialist sessions and visiting CENACE, CENIDET, INEEL to discuss collaboration on hydropower planning, power electronics, and energy scenarios for Mexico. Further photos are available on the Instituto Nacional de Electricidad y Energías Limpias website.
To minimise the climate impact of travel, John participated remotely as a pre-recorded presentation and then joined the group for coffee and conversation. If you are interested in doing something similar he is happy to discuss the practicalities, benefits and difficulties of this format.
