Meet The Buyer: Delivering Cleantech Building Solutions

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

The Cambridge Cleantech Building Technologies SIG and British Antarctic Survey (BAS) are offering cleantech businesses an opportunity to pitch products or services to the BAS team. This event on 11 February 2016 is free of charge for members and £150 for non- members.  Join Cambridge Cleantech here.

The skilled science and support staff based in Cambridge, Antarctica and the Arctic, work together to deliver research in the Polar Regions to advance our understanding of Earth and our impact on it. The recently commission to build a New Polar Research Vessel, which will enter service in 2019, is the chief catalyst for embarking on the delivery of a series of projects that have a strong focus on reducing environmental impact, and transform the way we conduct our business.

Sectors of interest to British Antarctic Survey:

Improving environmental performance across the BAS estate. BAS facilities include a number of research stations in Antarctica and an office building in Cambridge. We are interested in, amongst others:

  • Renewable and low Carbon power generation – All will be considered for adaptation
  • Energy Management – e.g. monitoring, load shedding, ‘smart’ controls, etc
  • Sewage treatment – Reduced energy/water consumption, energy from waste, etc
  • Water treatment – Energy/water efficiency, forward osmosis, etc
  • Buildings and services – Efficient construction materials, lighting, heating, water fittings, pumping & refrigeration
  • Low energy vehicles and mobile plant in extreme environments
  • Life Cycle Analysis of our activities
  • Remote data collection

BAS undertakes many of its scientific activities using remote autonomous instruments, these often rely on environmental power generation and battery storage, in many cases this equipment is deployed by air so system weight is critical. Areas of interest include:

  • Power saving methodologies and technologies
  • Power generation and storage.
  • High impact innovations that could change the way we do things

Cambridge Cleantech is the members’ organisation supporting the growth of environmental goods and services or “cleantech” companies in Greater Cambridge and beyond. Our ambition is to further develop Cambridge as a leading cleantech centre in Europe by co-ordinating, supporting and promoting commercial opportunities for our members.
