techUK & CSA Catapult: Energy Efficient Networks – roundtable series
techUK is delighted to partner with the Compound Semiconductors Applications Catapult to deliver five roundtable consultations on energy efficiency and innovation in the UK’s telecoms networks.
Addressing both the long-term ambition of a Net Zero economy, and shorter-term challenge of unprecedented energy costs, techUK and CSA Catapult will bring together companies from across the entire telecoms value chain – operators, vendors, service providers and manufacturers – to share valuable knowledge on improving energy efficiency, the materials and techniques set to make an impact, and the technologies and software offering a way forward.
The roundtable series is part of a wider research project by five Catapults: Connected Places; Digital; Energy Systems; Satellite Applications and led by the Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult, which is examining the technologies and materials set to have an impact on network energy consumption. Our objective in convening these roundtables is to: feed into this wider research, determine what policy or strategic interventions the UK government could consider, bring together key players across the telecoms and energy ecosystems, and develop the market opportunity for innovation breakthroughs.
There will be five roundtables in the series:
Wednesday 7 December 2022: Series kick-off and scene setting
Wednesday 18 January 2023: Technology Exploration 1
Wednesday 1 February 2023: Technology Exploration 2
Wednesday 15 February 2023: Technology Exploration 3
Wednesday 8 March 2023: Summary and next steps
Each roundtable will run online from 10:00-12:00 (GMT).
Those attending will be encouraged to share best practice on the themes and topics, with feedback open and frank discussion very much welcomed. The roundtables will be held under Chatham House Rule.
