The IPCC 5th Assessment Report approved for release by UN member states is an inherently conservative document. In particular, it mentions, but does not quantify, the “tipping point” risks of the climate system. Scientists have long been concerned about these non-linear feedback mechanisms that may trigger rapid, irreversible and catastrophic change. New evidence suggests this may now be happening.
Australian battery manufacturer Redflow Ltd has established a battery laboratory in Adelaide to assist with its software development and to certify its zinc bromide flow batteries with multiple inverters. Join us to tour this facility, and to see the Large Scale Battery (LSB) that has just been installed at Base64 to demonstrate the scalability of that technology.
Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) can be defined as “an approach to urban planning and design that integrates the management of the total water cycle into the urban development process”. Four leaders in this field will present on the progress in WSUD in South Australia, with an emphasis on stormwater management.
The Sustainable Engineering Society (SENG) is holding its next national conference on the 9th and 10th of September 2015 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
SENG plays a significant role in Engineers Australia (EA) - the peak engineering body with over 100 000 members – whose Code of Ethics requires engineers to act in the interests of community and sustainability ahead of sectional interests.
