Please join us for a dinner presentation on the topic of "Next Generation Low Carbon Technolgoies" featuring a presentation by Jae Mather. His presentation will include a brief overview of the main renewable energy technologies, which will be followed up with an in-depth exploration of the bleeding edge sustainable technologies that are on the horizon. Please see below for full details.

The presentation will explore technologies like solar panels that produce both heat and electricity at the same time (PV-T), screw pile foundation systems with integrated geo-exchange, inter-seasonal thermal storage systems for buildings (EEB) and other technologies that enable the delivery of carbon positive, self-sufficient buildings, cost effectively today.
