Upcoming seminar on May 26th: Focus on Clean Energy

Tue, May 18, 2021

The race is on to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Clean energy is gathering speed and industries are rapidly shifting their focus to new markets.

Robotics for I&M are poised to play a significant role in the transition to clean energy. On- and offshore wind energy are undergoing a period of explosive growth; solar is one of the fastest-growing renewable power sources. Wind and solar farms present significant opportunities for use I&M robotics, helping to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and increase safety and productivity.

On May 26th, SPRINT Robotics and RIMA Network will co-host “Focus on Clean Energy: The Impact of Robotics for I&M”. The seminar captures synergies and best practices between on- and offshore wind, solar, and hydroelectrics, exploring the role I&M robotics can play in reducing carbon emissions and contributing to a clean energy future.

This seminar is free of charge.
SPRINT Robotics members do not need to register; a direct link to the seminar will be available on SR Community.
