  • 2. The 2011 Workshop Programme
  • 3. The 2011 Workshop Programme Energy & Grid Carbon Forestry Intensity Small & Life Cycle Medium Analysis Enterprises Buildings Agriculture Freight Community Transport & Groups Logistics Tourism Waste ICT Boundaries
  • 4. Theme 1: Industry Engagement Technical Method Development Workshops / Activities Refined Methods Pilot Dissemination & CPD / Skills Training Workshops / Development Activities Best Practice Case Studies Industry Pilots / Road Testing
  • 5. Theme 2: System Boundaries Questions remain regarding appropriate system boundaries – specifically with regard to Scope 3 emissions / supply chain / LCA / Land Use We need to find the appropriate balance between accuracy and pragmatism – What is the purpose of inclusion? – When is a method / number good enough? – Need for sector specific emission factors (e.g. Waste) – More accurate inclusive approaches potentially easier to apply at larger scales – allocation issues can become significant barrier at small scales (Transport & Tourism)
  • 6. Theme 3: Consistency & Integration Proliferation of methodologies in some sectors...inter- comparison exercise may be needed to assess consistency There is a need for within sector alignment – application of internally consistent assumptions (Freight Modes, Agriculture) Clear need for cross sector collaboration and integration (All Sectors)
  • 7. Theme 4: Assessing Benefits Current accounting practices do not (readily) allow full assessment of (lifetime) carbon benefits May disincentivise carbon reduction / promote sub- optimal solutions (Waste Minimisation) Methods to evaluate the contribution of technologies adopted during transition phases to future carbon reduction may be beneficial (Electrification / Grid Decarbonisation) – Inform decision making (policy, developer, consumer) – Aid communication (public opinion / acceptability)
  • 8. Theme 5: Skills Development Need for knowledge exchange / skills development Addressing the gap between core education and senior practitioners
  • 9. The Questions... Methods Case Studies Cross Sector Compatability Education / Skills Development Sector Workshops for 2012 Work Plan
