Welcome to the 2021 IET-CSEE Joint Workshop

Following a successful series of energy-related workshops organised by the IET and the Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering (CSEE) in 2020, 2021 we will continue the China-UK dialogue, this time focusing on “Carbon Neutral”. Experts from academia and industry from China and the UK will discuss the most significant challenges the energy sector is facing as well as possible green solutions, across a series of three events.

Due to the continuing restrictions caused by COVID-19 (Coronavirus) the IET-CSEE workshops will now take place online. Please register using the button below.
