Event description

Description

A free public event looking at results from recent workshops on the future of how energy is produced and consumed in Port Talbot, undertaken by the Understanding Risk Group based at Cardiff University with people from the town in May - September 2019.

The UK and Welsh Governments have set out radical goals for decarbonising the energy system in the UK by 2050. But what would a low or zero carbon energy system look like? What would it be like to live in a low carbon future in a South Wales town?

Along with engineering colleagues from the ERDF-funded FLEXIS project, based at the universities of Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales, the research team constructed four scenarios setting out some aspects of what such a future might be like. 5 groups of participants recruited from Port Talbot discussed and debated these potential futures. In this event, the research team invites attendees to explore these scenarios further, and to discuss their own ideas about what the future of energy might look like in Port Talbot.

FLEXIS is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), through the Welsh Government.
