2023 CIBSE ANZ Seminar Series: Call for speakers

22 May 23

The 2023 CIBSE ANZ Seminar Series is set to kick off on Tuesday,  22 August, with the theme of 6 Minutes to Midnight: Insights & practical solutions to make a difference in the built environment by 2030 ...and beyond. The event features five sessions that run each Tuesday from 12-2pm AEST, and each session explores the latest trends and innovations that can help us achieve a sustainable built environment by 2030 and beyond.

Want to contribute? We are looking for both speakers and panelists that can talk about our overarching topic or have specific expertise in one of our 5 weekly focuses. 

Session 1 of the event, titled Pathways Stairways and Highways, sets the tone for the series by discussing the grid carbon trajectory and exploring microgrids and flexibility. Load balancing between properties, as well as pilot project case studies, will also be discussed.

Session 2, titled Leaving a Legacy, will explore how we can trade off embodied carbon and operational energy. Issues related to embodied carbon in MEP will also be discussed, including the need to act wisely while acting now.

Session 3, Back to the Future, will focus on retrofit opportunities, including heat pumps, as well as the impacts of working from home and changing societal norms, such as millennials and Gen Z who are demanding change and a focus on redefining loads for electric systems design. 

Session 4, Back to the Future Pt II, takes a step back to learn from our previous mistakes as an industry. What is the next tri-gen, co-gen, asbestos or CFC refrigerant we are considering now? Could it even be heat pumps? 

Session 5, To Infinity and Beyond…(2030), rounds off the seminar series by exploring how building services design can promote agility and sustainability. AI and 'Smart' technology, as well as microgrids, will also be discussed in this session. 

By bringing together experts from our industry, CIBSE ANZ hopes to inspire and educate professionals in the built environment industry to find sustainable solutions to today's problems that will continue to work well into the future. The seminar series offers an exceptional opportunity for professionals to learn from the best in the industry and contribute to the collective effort to make a real difference in the world by 2030.
