Global Energy Leader at Arup joins Healthy Cities


We are delighted that Arup's Director and Global Leader Energy Systems, Alan Thomson, will be speaking at our 'Healthy Cities' forum on 30th January 2019. He joins Dr Fiona Twycross, Chief Resilience Officer from the GLA and Patrick Allcorn, Local Energy Leader from the UK Government department BEIS.

In our energy debate this week, we will be asking the vital question - how we can power cities sustainably? Arup states that from 'always-on buildings to electric vehicles, cities require a smarter, whole-systems thinking, approach to energy generation, storage and use...It means addressing local governance issues, embracing the digital era, considering lower carbon sources like hydrogen and using alternative funding options in order to provide sustainable and affordable infrastructure that powers our city lives'.
