Dwr Uisce Conference 2017 (Sustainability in Energy & Water Resources: Research & Practice)

  • Bangor University Reichel Hall, Ffriddoedd Site, Bangor LL57 2TW Bangor Gwynedd (map)

The first Dwr Uisce 2017 Conference will focus on research and practitioner perspectives in relation to the sustainability of energy & water resources in Ireland and Wales. It is an opportunity for stakeholders in the water and energy sectors to come together and discuss the distinct and common challenges faced in the region. The day will consists of three distinct sessions: 'Practice & Governance', 'Sustainability in Action' and 'Dwr Uisce Perspectives'.

Our event will be opened by Dafydd Elis-Thomas AM, National Assembly for Wales, who is actively involved in the Sustainable Energy action group in the Assembly. As such, his opening address will outline the direction in which Wales has come from and is going in relation to energy and sustainability.
