CleanTech in focus at Cambridge summit

Resourcing new energy and cutting consumption of existing supplies is a balancing act occupying the minds of governments and corporates across the planet.

Finding CleanTech solutions will not just be game changing but life altering, delegates to a Cambridge UK conference on disruptive technology will learn.

Leading academics and corporate CleanTech thought leaders combine to explore solutions at the Nerve congress at Cambridge Corn Exchange from June 25-27.

ARM CEO Warren East and director of emerging technologies Gary Atkinson will explain how smart sensors in the connected world delivered by the Internet of Things, will clean up our homes and cities. And how IoT will boost irrigation, water retention and crop production to help put cheaper food on the table.

Ian Leslie, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, will outline his work focusing on the use of information systems to reduce energy demand.

Harvesting new energy will be addressed by Raghu Das, CEO of IDTechEX and demonstrated by Laurence Kemball-Cook of Pavegen, who has created tiles made from recycled materials that collect and store energy from people’s footsteps in areas of high urban footfall.

Simon Bransfield-Garth of Azuri Technologies will describe the benefits of solar in delivering low-cost power to off-grid territories.

Greener buildings for the future will be detailed by senior practitioners from world-renowned design & architecture firm Foster + Partners. The Technology Strategy Board – the Government’s innovation agency – is also hoping to pitch in with a demonstration of best practice from Britain’s leading smart city pioneers.
