Data-driven Modelling for Decarbonisation Research: Thurs 9 Nov 23, 10:00-12:00
Data-driven modelling approaches are playing a key role in decarbonisation research both in the United Kingdom and further afield. This workshop focuses on the use of life cycle assessment (LCA) to quantify the environmental impacts of processes and production chains. We will then discuss the use of LCA for biomass to bioenergy pathways and electrification of heat through case studies.
The workshop also highlights the use of data-driven approaches for solving charging infrastructure planning problems in the context of cities. Some case studies involving application of data-driven approaches for charging infrastructure planning problems, will be presented.
Additionally, we will consider data-driven approaches in material design. In our discussion, we will cover the fundamental concepts, operational principles, and practical applications of data-driven approaches for material discovery and design. We provide real-world examples of successful implementations to illustrate these ideas.
- Identify attributional and consequential life cycle assessment approaches.
- Critically appraise the role of life cycle assessment for evaluating sustainability of renewable energy systems, particularly for the UK.
- Critically discuss the applications of data-driven approaches for solving charging infrastructure planning problem.
- Consider the applications of data-driven approaches in material design.
