Transforming Utility Conversion Points (TUCP) dissemination event, London

The TUCP project will hold a final dissemination event next month, aimed at stakeholders and researchers with an interest in promoting a resilient and sustainable national infrastructure system. This EPSRC-funded project (part of the ARCC network) has looked at interdependencies and efficiencies of infrastructure at points of energy conversion. The latest research findings on the potential for integrating critical infrastructure systems (water, heating, energy and transport) through multi-scale operationalisation of conversion points will be presented. Opportunities for compatible joined-up regulation and inter-utility adaptation will be highlighted and discussed.
