Antarctic Sustainable Energy, Northumbria University, Thursday, 14. March 2019

The Challenges on Energy in the Antarctic are manifold but the Princess Elisabeth Research Station is attempting to do that with zero environmental impact. The Station was designed to be Antarctica’s first zero-emission base. It’s planned as a ‘passive building,’ with all the materials maximising energy use and heat distribution. Melting snow produces a renewable water supply for drinking and cooking, and used water is purified and re-used for the showers, toilets and washing machine.
Dr Kate Winter is a Vice Chancellors Research Fellow in the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences at Northumbria University. In October 2018 she was awarded the Baillet Latour Antarctica Fellowship for 2018 – 2020. This fellowship will fund two research expeditions to Antarctica, where Kate will stay at the Princess Elisabeth Research Station
Kate will discuss how you can produce and run a busy research station in one of the harshest environments in the world
