BMCC’s Excellence Showcase Series on UK Technologies in Energy Transition with Arup and Mott MacDonald

Date: 4 March 2024

Brilliant minds converged at the BMCC’s Excellence Showcase Series: Showcasing UK Technologies in Energy Transition on a panel moderated by Azman Nasir, Chair of our Energy Committee and Regional Director of The EIC (Energy Industries Council) and closed by our CEO, Jennifer Lopez. Speaking at the showcase were Scott Selkirk, Technical Director of Digital Solution from Mott MacDonald, and Nick Ash, Associate Principal and Southeast Asian Energy Leader for Arup.

Scott Selkirk presented their newly developed technology, Carbon Twin, an embodied carbon visualisation solution that is designed to understand carbon. The technology was developed to understand carbon hotspots at a former gold mining settlement in Kidston, North Queensland in order to transform it into a renewable energy hub.

Nick Ash presented on the topic of strategies for low-carbon hydrogen integration and unveiled a comprehensive overview of Arup’s energy system modelling and a couple of case studies. The public sector has used these strategies to inform policy decisions and priorities for channelling financial support, and corporations have used similar strategies to identify market opportunities to capitalise on global trends towards decarbonisation.

The discussion fruitfully sparked and answered many questions on energy transition technologies.
