Indo-UK Local Energy Systems Webinar Series – starts 14 February 2023

Indo-UK Local Energy Systems Webinar Series – starts 14 February 2023

Energy systems across the world are becoming localised, decarbonised, and digitalised. In this era of smart, localised energy systems, co-generation facilities and renewable energy sources are expected to provide a wide range of  benefits such as alleviating fuel poverty, and community income generation as well as contributing to decarbonisation. These systems can help to improve network management, reduce operating costs, and overcome current energy system constraints.

Local energy systems have been the subject of intensive research and development in recent years, leading to a need to update the research community with the latest developments.

This lecture series brings together researchers from India and the UK, working in the local energy systems field, contributing to knowledge exchange, facilitating discussion of cutting-edge developments, and encouraging Indo-UK research collaborations.

The series of three online lectures will cover aspects of local energy systems, including modelling, energy storage, components, planning and operation in the UK and in India.

Intended Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify the key concepts and requirements, modelling techniques, planning and operation of local energy systems;
  • Identify and describe energy storage alternatives for these systems;
  • Describe the local energy systems landscapes in two very different countries;
  • Critically discuss how these countries can learn from and work with each other;
  • Plan future research collaborations.


Lecture 1- Local Energy System Modelling – 10:00-11:30 Tuesday 14 February 2023, Dr Anurag Chauhan and Dr Sanchari Deb.

Lecture 2- Energy storage for local energy systems – 10:00-11.30 Tuesday 28 February 2023, Dr Ankur Bhattacharya and Dr Amruta Joshi.

Lecture 3- Local energy systems for rural electrification – 10:00-11.30 Thursday 16th March 2023, Dr Sunanda Sinha and Dr Prashant Malik.

Each webinar will consist of two researchers, each speaking for around 25 minutes on the topic, followed by a question and answer session.

Register to attend:

UK researchers should register via Inkpath using the ‘Book online’ button below.

Non-UK researchers should complete this form to register interest in attending this webinar series:  Non-UK Booking

There will be an opportunity after the webinar series to engage in a collaboration and planning workshop in March 2023.
