Condition based monitoring - using sensors to determine faults before they happen

The Environment Agency is undertaking research into how sensors and near real time data can assist in the prediction of MEICA asset deterioration and thus be used as a real time tool to trigger just in time maintenance of equipment. Condition based monitoring of assets is commonplace in many industries, but as assets are infrequently loaded this presents many challenges in order to adopt this new technology.

Climate Just - Social Vulnerability & extreme weather in a changing climate

The impacts of Climate Change are not evenly distributed. More vulnerable groups, including people on the lowest incomes, who generally contribute least to greenhouse gas emissions, tend to be among the most affected. The presentation will consider how we ensure recognition of social vulnerability in policy and practice, and that the uneven impacts of climate change are addressed to ensure fair, just adaptation?
