Life Cycle Analysis in Engineering
Date:
Thursday, October 10, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Dr Enda Crossin, Swinburne Uni and Ms Nicole Sullivan, Green Building Council
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
With engineering projects facing the challenge of reaching a sustainable and net zero carbon future, the life cycle analysis process is more important than ever. Join us to learn how can we successfully analyse a project across various points over the life cycle. Co-hosted with Asset Management Council, Engineers Without Borders, Mechanical College & Risk Engineering Society.
Building Information Modelling - The future of designing green buildings and infrastructure
Date:
Thursday, September 19, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
Liam Corscadden Australian Digital Engineering Lead for Urban Development & Regeneration for Arcadis, and Matt Drake, Digital Engineering Manager, Lendlease
Venue:
Harricks Auditorium Engineers Australia 8 Thomas street
Synopsis:
Building Information Modelling (BIM) utilises digital media to represent the physical and functional properties of a structure. BIM transcends the traditional 2D technical drawings to accommodate all 3 dimensions, while also enhancing the same with additional dimensions of time, cost, environmental sustainability and life cycle facility management. Join Mr. Liam Corscadden and Mr. Matt Drake in an informative session that will shed light on the world of BIM, its applications and its scope in Australia.
Tough Is Not Enough
Date:
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:30
Event:
S.A. Events
Presenter:
Steve Posselt
Venue:
Engineers Australia South Australia - Level 11, 108 King William Street, Adelaide SA 5000
Synopsis:
Steve Posselt will take you on an incredible journey with his wheeled kayak. The only person to have paddled up the Mississippi in a flood, Steve will have you spellbound as he makes his way to Paris for the COP21 Climate Summit. The climate change message, that is the science has not sunk in where it is needed. The message is correct but the messaging has failed. Steve will give you some clues as to how our imperfect brains work, and how to tailor communication approaches to suit.
Transitioning Built Environment to Zero Net Emissions by 2050
Date:
Wednesday, August 7, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Drushti Chandarana, Professor Sujeeva Setunge, Michael Li
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
This event explores emissions from infrastructure materials and how we might transition the sector to net zero emissions by 2050. When and how do we start planning for an orderly transition? What are the roles of Government and the market? Can we find the material and energy solutions to meet predicted demands?
Restorative Engineering - Rebuilding the Environment
Date:
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 18:30
Event:
Sydney Events
Presenter:
William Glamore, Water Research Laboratory UNSW and Kylie Russell, Port Stephens Fisheries Institute
Venue:
Harricks Auditorium Engineers Australia 8 Thomas street
Synopsis:
Restorative engineering is a new approach to engineering of ecosystems to manage complex and endangered ecological communities. It uses a multi-disciplinary approach to understand natural systems so that they can be reconstructed biomimetically.
The Sustainable Hydrogen/Ammonia Economy
Date:
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Dr. Patrick Hartley, Mr Martin Hablutzel & Mr Tim Forcey
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
Clean hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier and feedstock that can enable deep decarbonisation across the energy and industrial sectors. Australia has the resources and skills to build an economically sustainable domestic and export hydrogen industry which can help meet emissions targets by replacing fossil fuels in transport, mining and power generation, and address concerns around energy security.
Energy Storage, Marine Permaculture, Food and Border Security, Ecosystem Regeneration, Oceanic Carbon Sinks
Date:
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:00
Event:
QLD Events
Presenter:
Brian Von Herzen, PhD
Venue:
Hawken Auditorium Engineering House 447 Upper Edward Street Brisbane , Queensland , 4000
Synopsis:
Brian Von Herzen, Ph.D will be speaking on the topic of needing affordable energy storage globally to allow for greater penetration of renewables, particularly photovoltaic, and then describe underwater compressed energy storage (UWCAES) and pumped thermal energy storage (PTES), how it relates to the 50% renewable energy usage commitment Queensland has committed to by 2030. Even 100% renewables will not be enough to restore a healthy climate.
Future Earth Australia
Date:
Friday, April 12, 2019 (All day)
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Venue:
Synopsis:
Future Earth Australia welcomes submissions from government, practitioners, industry, the private sector, NGOs, civil society and academia on our 'Urban Systems Transformation for Sustainable Development Outcomes' consultation process. Your submission will inform our collective strategy due for publication in June 2019. We are looking for submissions that engage with one of more of the following themes: Developing shared urban visions, goals and indicators; Collaborative governance and decision making; Identification of high leverage urban transformation issues and opportunities More effective stakeholder and community engagement and influence; Co-produced knowledge development, usage and learning; Identification of high priority knowledge gaps, issues and opportunities; and Other elements of an urban vision and strategy for Australia. Your input may be drawn from, or relevant to, any spatial scale (from local to international). Actual case studies or examples are also of particular interest.
Climate and Carbon Challenges
Date:
Thursday, April 11, 2019 - 17:30
Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Assoc Prof Malte Meinshausen, & Mr Tom Yankos
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
This event will examine the opportunities and challenges for Australia and especially, the engineering profession, to reshape its industries and society to meet the global challenge of emissions reductions required to meet the safe climate goals set at the 2015 Paris climate conference and reviewed at COP24 2018 in Poland. The topic will be addressed from perspectives of (a) latest scientific assessments on climate and emissions trends; and (b) challenges for the engineering profession in responding to industry transformations necessitated by a carbon constrained future.
Climate Change and Sustainability
Date:
Monday, February 25, 2019 - 16:30 to 19:30
Event:
W.A. Events
Presenter:
Dr Jatin Kala, atmospheric scientist, Murdoch University, Prof Petra Tschakert, human-environment geographer, University of Western Australia, Prof Peter Newman, AO, sustainability specialist, Curtin University, David Rice, FIEAust, advocate for sustaina
Venue:
Engineers Australia WA Auditorium - 712 Murray Street, West Perth , WA , 6005
Synopsis:
This event will be filmed and made available on the EA website for national viewing In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C (https://report.ipcc.ch/sr15/) was released. Ninety-one authors and review editors from 40 countries prepared this report in response to an invitation from the United Nations when it adopted the Paris Agreement in 2015. Join us for presentations by three of the authors of this historic report explaining the background, why we should stay below 1.5°C and the consequences of going to 2°C and beyond. This is a great opportunity to gain reliable information on this topical global issue that affects current and future generations. An Australian context will be provided. This will be followed by a short presentation by one of the authors of Engineers Australia’s sustainability guidelines (Implementing Sustainability: Principles and Practice) on what engineers can do locally to take into account climate change, and other sustainability issues such as vegetation and species loss. Implementing Sustainability: Principles and Practice can be downloaded from here, select ‘Sustainability’: free to EA members". About the speakers: Dr Jatin Kala, atmospheric scientist, Murdoch University – what 1.5°C is and why we care Prof Petra Tschakert, human-environment geographer, University of Western Australia – what 1.5°C means for people and sustainable development Prof Peter Newman, AO, sustainability specialist, Curtin University – what the world is doing and what more it can do David Rice, FIEAust, advocate for sustainability in engineering 4.30pm tea and coffee for 5pm start-6.30pm followed by networking until 7pm - refreshments provided
