ASHRAE UK-Midlands Chapter and our co-hosts Loughborough University Women's Engineering Society are proud to host our Distinguished Lecture Conference 2019. The event is a free full day conference event and exhibition which will be headlined by our ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer.


Our Distinguished Lecture for this year is THOMAS M. LAWRENCE, Ph.D., P.E., LEED-AP from University of Georgia, Atlanta.

The subject of Tom's presentation will be High Performance Building Design – What the Future holds for the Direction for our Industry

During the past two decades, we have seen the growth and maturation of the green or high-performance building design concept.   Dr. Lawrence provides an overview of how building systems have evolved to meet the demands for green building design and where we are headed in the future in this arena.  Also covered are topics such as the evolution of building design standards to include sustainability features, how building designers can overcome obstacles to include these advanced low carbon concepts in their designs, the impact of new technologies such as a renewables, smart grid and BIM on modern MEP design, and discussion on how this will impact the future industry.

Microgrids: A new market opportunity?


Dr Duncan Child

Head of Program Management UK, Schneider Electric


Today’s market forces are leading to a departure from a highly centralized power system and a return to smaller scale, localized systems that optimize power demand, consumption, and management. Microgrids are emerging as one of these decentralizing systems that organisations are considering to meet core strategic objectives such as meeting carbon targets, cost savings, greater penetration of renewable energy and resilience of supply. A microgrid will optimize the energy distribution across a local network and balance the energy flows from the distributed energy resources so that they meet these strategic objectives. The distributed energy resources will likely consist of both generating assets and controllable electrical loads.

This event is in association with the Energy Institute



Dr Duncan Child, Head of Program Management, Schneider Electric will present provide an overview of microgrids, the drivers for this change, where the potential applications for microgrids are and discuss how digitisation of the energy sector is opening up the potential applications for microgrids.
