Although this news is a little delayed, the TSBE Centre is delighted to announce that earlier this year Saadia Ansari, a final year EngD student in the TSBE centre was elected as chair of the CIBSE Young Energy Performance Group (YEPG).
The YEPG began in 2012 and is a subgroup of the CIBSE Energy Performance Group (EPG). Their focus is to provide a platform for the discussion and dissemination of innovative ideas and research on the energy performance of buildings. As their focus is on young engineers that are entering this growing industry, the group provides an open forum for discussions and hosts multiple opportunities for networking amongst its members. In addition to this the YEPG also hosts a number of CPD certified events throughout the year.
This is a great opportunity as such events and exposure to industry provide a unique opportunity for EngD’s and other academics to informally present their research to audiences outside of academia and to discuss this with industry experts. The group is very active throughout the year hosting a number of different types of events ranging from building tours to CPD certified informative talks, to the less formal annual quiz.
