overview

Smi's 8th Annual Energy from Waste conference is designed to be a platfom for discussion and understanding of the developments in industry. The conference will cover a range of issues including how the circular economy will impact Energy from Waste and other updates on regulation and recycling targets. We will look at how the industry should develop in next couple of years encompassing how technology is developing and how  the number of plants able to utilise heat can be increased. Merchant financing, contracts for difference and legal issues regarding these plants are also major issues that will be discussed.

 

This established conference will allow attendees to network with industry leaders allowing issues to be discussed, debated and solved. As a key part of the waste management industry Energy from Waste plants must be ablet to adapt to changes in the regulatory and recycling environments.

 

• Receive regulatory guidance and understand the impact of the circular economy on energy from waste
• Understand how merchant projects can be funded and what projects are bankable
• Discuss how Heating Distribution networks can become a reality
• Get ahead of the game and learn about the latest cutting edge technological breakthroughs

This conference will be of interest to anyone involved, or looking to become involved in the Energy from Waste sector. This includes:

  • Local Authorities
  • Major Waste companies
  • Banks
  • Lawyers
  • consultancies

    ESA

    Official Media Partner
    http://www.esauk.org

    The Environmental Services Association (ESA) works on behalf of our Members to support and promote the Waste & Resource Management industry. We work with governments, parliaments and regulators to bring about a sustainable system of waste and resource management for the UK. Our industry provides services which are essential to modern life. The companies that make up the sector collect the waste produced by households and businesses across the UK, treat it responsibly, and turn a large percentage of that waste into new resources and energy for the nation. In recent years the industry has transformed itself. Ten years ago, over three-quarters of Britain's waste went to landfill (compared to well under 50% today) and waste management was chiefly focused on the logistics of collection and transport. While these still matter, the industry has developed a range of technologies to treat waste and extract value from it. Innovation & investment is a constant feature of modern waste management. The ESA is also at the forefront of debates about waste prevention and recycling, playing a vital role in driving higher standards within our industry.


    ESWET: European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology

    Official Media Partner
    http://www.eswet.eu/

    ESWET is the association grouping the European Suppliers of Waste-to-Energy Technology. Our main purpose is to foster the development and dissemination of Waste-to-Energy. Waste-to-Energy (also called Energy-from-Waste) has an important role to play both on the energy recovery and on the environmental aspects of managing waste that is not suitable for recycling. Waste-to-Energy is an integral part of sustainable waste management, as reflected by its role in the Waste Hierarchy of the EU’s Waste Framework Directive, acting in complement to recycling while enabling landfilling minimisation. Making a valuable contribution to the reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions through better waste management and cleaner energy, Waste-to-Energy is a solution to multiple challenges.”

    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.
