Exergy-Economics Workshop

Exergy-Economics Workshop, May 19-20 2014, Weetwood Hall

Welcome to the exergy-economics workshop. below you will find a summary of the location, progamme and sessional descriptions. On the right hand side tabs you will find (in time) more information on each sessional theme. 

Location:

The venue is Weetwood Hall Conference Centre and Hotel,  Otley Road, Leeds, LS16 5PS.

Directions: The easiest way to reach Weetwood Hall from Leeds train station or Leeds Bradford Airport is by taxi. From the train station it takes 10-15 minutes – the taxi rank is outside the front of the train station. From the  airport, it takes 15-20 minutes – the airport has a contract with Arrow taxis whose booking office and taxi rank is outside the front of the airport. If you intend to drive or use public transport, further information/ directions can be found on Weetwood’s Hall’s website at  http://www.weetwood.co.uk/page.php/id=604.

Sessional Description & Attendees

Convener(s)Session titleSession title and descriptionAttendees - Day 1Attendees - Day 2
Tania SousaDeveloping a common Methodology for useful work accountingDeveloping a consistent approach to issues including:
(a) Primary exergy (renewables and remaining issues with aggregating fossils)
(b) Mapping to useful work categories using IEA data
(c) 2nd law device efficiencies including electricity end use
(d) Inclusion / exclusion of exergy inputs related to non-energy use
