Cambridge Cleantech and Cambridge Science Park hosted a highly successful conference on Energy and Renewable Technologies at Bradfield Centre on September 17.

The event followed the recent announcement by Science Park director Jeanette Walker that the city can become “a global leader of renewable and sustainable technologies”, which will include a new Centre for Energy and Renewable Technology Research based at the old Abcam building on the Park.

It was evident from the huge turnout - tickets were sold out a month in advance - and the activity after the event that there is a demand for a renewable energy centre to be established on the Cambridge Science Park, to harvest the many talents Cambridge has to offer in the sector. At the Bradfield Centre, 140 participants listened to entrepreneurs and academicians reveal the newest technologies to generate and store energy, how to sustainably improve battery life, the future of reducing energy usage in our homes through smart power systems, and the possibility of turning skyscrapers into power stations using transparent photovoltaic panels.
