Speaker: Marian Marsh CMILT, Transport Planner, Reading Borough Council
Reading’s BikeSmart as part of the Empower EU Project: Encouraging new people to cycle instead of driving using a Smartphone App and other incentives. The Local Sustainable Transport Fund enabled Reading to deliver improved cycling infrastructure including a bike hire scheme and the development of an incentives App to encourage sustainable travel. Reading’s modal share is slowly increasing but remains low compared to other UK Authorities and Europe, at around 4% for all trips.BikeSmart aims to double the number of cyclists in the modal split from March to July 2017 by encouraging drivers to switch to cycling through the BetterPoints App offering points and prizes as well as adult cycle trainings, led rides, events and a workplace challenge. The presentation will draw conclusions on what worked best and what may work for other authorities wishing to implement a similar programme.About the Speaker

Speaker: Captain Hugh Dibley FRAeS FRIN FCILT
Flight Simulators have been in use since 1909 when early aircraft were unstable and difficult to fly in good weather, greatly improving safety by teaching pilots to fly in cloud on instruments and now civil pilots can be trained and checked on top level simulators without the expense of flying aircraft making flight simulators essential for airline viability. Aircraft manufacturers have always used simulation in some form to assist in the design and development of aircraft and now with computerisation engineering flight simulators are central to the whole process from conception through to flight test monitoring and possible in service improvements. Hugh will discuss the history and development of current systems and the future need for flight simulators and pilot training and how to help pilots carry maximum payload at minimum cost. A videos of incidents illustrating the need for flight training will be shown.
Refreshments will be provided before the event.

Speaker: Siegfried Huegemann
Batteries are too large, heavy, and too costly for the African transportation market. No other technology can compete with hydrogen fuel cells when it comes to emission-free heavy-load, long-haul, and light-weight transport. Africa is a gold mine for renewable energy due to abundant solar, wind, geothermal and hydropower resources. Hydrogen can be easily stored and transported using existing modern technologies. Power-to-Gas (P2G) is the process of managing the intermittent character of renewable energy, converting the surplus renewable energy into hydrogen, and delivering green hydrogen to the distribution system. Hear how it can be done with a presentation from Siegfried Huegemann.
About the speaker: Siggi rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the German Army before gaining a Masters of Commerce in Finance and Quantative Analysis. He has specialised in Banking Technology since 1997 and currently manages derivatives technology with a leading asset management company. Since 2014, Siggi has driven the African Hydrogen Power initiative and network. African Hydrogen Power is dedicated to promoting green hydrogen and fuel cell technology in Africa.

Speaker: Tanja Dalle- Muenchmeyer, European programme Manager, FREVUE
Urban air quality is of increasing concern in London as well as most other cities in the UK. While policy measures have long focused on busses and passenger cars, freight vehicles are now moving up the political agenda and an array of new measures are being introduced to reduce the impact of vans and trucks on London's air quality. Based on the Freight Electric Vehicles in Urban Europe ( FREVUE) projects, tanja will present findings on electric freight vehicles, their economics, technical and operational suitability as well as environmental benefits. based on these results and new initiatives, can we say that the electrification of freight vehicles is the way forward?
