This year's seminar series 6 Minutes to Midnight: Insights & practical solutions to make a difference in the built environment by 2030...and Beyond, featured five enlightening sessions, dedicated to exploring the latest trends and innovations that can help us achieve a sustainable built environment by 2030 and beyond. 

We dove in deep to the nitty gritty practical aspects of the realities of what avoiding irreparable climate change involves. We began the journey with grid carbon trajectory, targets, microgrids, and flexibility. The trade-off between embodied carbon and operational energy is explored, along with retrofit opportunities and the ‘technology of the hour’ - heat pumps. The series was not complete without a look at the impacts of societal changes in the last 2…5…10 years and the demands for change from younger generations. Then, the series took a step back to look at mistakes from the past to avoid as we charged headlong into reducing all things carbon.
We endeavoured to find out - what might be the next cogeneration, tri-generation or CFC refrigerant? Finally, we looked firmly ahead and explored how building services design can promote agility and sustainability, leveraging 'Smart' technology, and micro-grids.

By bringing together experts from our industry, CIBSE ANZ's aim was to inspire and educate professionals in the built environment industry.
We believe that sustainable solutions to today's problems can make a lasting impact well into the future. The seminar series presented an exceptional opportunity for professionals to learn from the best in the industry, contribute to collective efforts, and make a real difference in the world by 2030.

Each session of the seminar series delved deep into key areas of focus, bringing forth valuable insights and practical solutions. See what we focused on with the programme.
