SMi is proud to introduce its 10th Annual Energy from Waste Conference, due to take place on the 6th - 7th December 2017 in Central London.

The Energy from Waste (EfW) industry is a fundamental cog of a modern nations infrastructure and energy provision. Not only this, but the increasing move towards greener and sustainable regulations makes this an ever important focus for the energy and waste sectors alike. In respect of this importance, the Energy from Waste conference this year will look at the impact of energy regulations and government policy on the UK market; experiences from the UK EfW sector and specific projects; the financing future beyond PPP (Public-Private Partnerships) and PFI (Private-Finance Initiatives) in light of the reduction in funding and recent funding pullouts; the Energy from Waste projects in Europe and further afield and lessons from these experiences of mature markets and emerging markets; new opportunities away from the arguably saturated electricity market through new technologies and feedstock availability; and the future outlook for the industry.

  • Explore the impact of energy regulations and government policy on the UK market
  • Benefit from the experiences from the UK market and specific projects;
  • Consider the financing future beyond PPP (Public-Private Partnerships) and PFI (Private-Finance Initiatives);
  • Engage with Energy from Waste projects in Europe and experiences of mature markets;
  • Gain insight into experiences in the international market and emerging markets;
  • Discuss new technologies, approaches and outlook for the industry.

Due to the fact that the fundamental foundations of the Energy from Waste (EfW) industry are changing – given the recent political climate, the changes in financing and funding opportunities and the deepening of the need for greener infrastructure in today's reality - the industry is constantly evolving parallel to these developments.

The conference will not solely be addressing these changes, but also provide a specific attention to international markets, especially those further afield and consider their challenges and solutions to EfW projects and technology. Finally, the conference will also address the fundamental changes to the funding associated with Energy from Waste and how this is impacting the market to move further towards merchant waste projects.

Attending this conference will allow you to explore the impact of energy regulations and government policy within the UK market alongside the experience from specific UK projects. We will also consider the future beyond PPP and PFI financing as  we potentially witnessed the last PPP funded project in December 2016 reach financial close. Furthermore, the conference will engage not only with the UK market, but with the experiences of mature markets in Europe, contrasting to the further afield international markets and the difference in experience with the experienced and emerging EfW projects. Finally, we will discuss the new technological developments in the industry and how this may impact the outlook for the future.

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
