    UDG Autumn Conference

    Hilton Hotel, Blackpool

    This 2014 event celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Urban Drainage Group with a return to their former home the Hilton Hotel, Blackpool UK.

    This conference comprises a program spanning three days of forums and presentations with workshops focused on current related industry topics. The event provides ample opportunities for learning and networking and to be involved in and discuss ongoing research results supported by various representatives.  An exhibition will showcase industry relevant companies and organisations, new technologies, suppliers and manufacturers from within the sector.

    The conference is aimed at presenting, exchanging and discussing the latest knowledge and research from within the industry both globally and locally.  The event is industry sponsored and there will be representatives from local and regional councils, government organisations, international organisations, local and regional utilities, water boards, manufacturers and more.  In 2013 the event was attended by over 240 urban drainage professionals with additional highlights from UK Water Industry Research Forum (UKWIR) and Clean Water Modelling Advisory Group.

    Breaking with tradition for the 30th anniversary, the event will be held from Tuesday to Thursday.  The Hilton Hotel in Blackpool boasts a seafront setting, just a short walk from the town centre and a brief taxi ride from the main rail station.  For our international guests it is supported by airports in Manchester and Liverpool. 

    The programme and registration form for this great value for money annual event are now available and can be viewed or downloaded below.

  • Geothermal Heat Pumps

    17:30
    19:00

    Speakers: Dave Tucker, WDS Green Energy and Gareth Farr, British Geological Survey

    Venue: Faculty Lecture Theatre, Trevithick Building, Cardiff University

    CIWEM Welsh branch (supported by Geological Society) would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation on Mine Water as an Energy Source for Heat Pumps.

    Synopsis:

    Abandoned mine workings within the South Wales Coalfield are often flooded with groundwater  that has the potential to be a major energy source for heat pumps.  Baseline monitoring of a network of mine water discharges from abandoned mines has been undertaken by the British Geological Survey proving temperatures up to 19˚C at the point of discharge at the surface. Calculations by Cardiff University has shown there is some 65MW's of heat that could be exploited to meet demands from homes, offices, schools etc across South Wales.

    To demonstrate the use of this valuable energy source WDS Green Energy Ltd have constructed a combined domestic and commercial heat pump project at Crynant near Neath utilising water in the underlying old workings of nearby Cefn Coed Colliery. This project is the first of its kind in the UK and has been undertaken with technical support from theSeren ProjectTeam at Cardiff University, the Coal Authority and NRW, and as heat pumps are one of the renewable energy systems approved by the UK Government under their carbon saving programme, the client is eligible for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments for 20 years.

    The talk will cover the design of heat pumps in general and how the Crynant project was conceived and developed and the benefits being accrued therefrom both environmentally and financially.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members. Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.  For further details please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org

    Aim

    This conference will reflect on how the lessons learned from 1953 helped mitigate impacts in December 2013; and discuss how we can continue to learn from these events going forward.   

    This event will look at:

    • The 1953 event - human cost and technical response 
    • The work of the East Coast Flood Group in preparing for a major incident
    • Last winter - coastal erosion and damage - the equivalent of 20 years of impact in one night
    • Forecasting for surges, including further planned developments
    • Warning the public and the role of social media
    • Recovery - restoration of damaged defences and rebuilding communities
    • Government expectations for coastal incident response 

    For more information, or to discuss sponsorship, contact: events@ciwem.org

    This conference has received the approval of The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management and will contribute to your CPD.
