The Seren project held its seventh Industrial Advisory Board earlier today. Leaders of industry discussed Seren’s 36 month evaluation report and advised project members on future opportunities.

Researchers from the GRC were joined by representatives of the British Geological Survey; the Carbon Trust; Natural Resources Wales; WDS Green Energy; The Environment and Sustainability Partnership; Arup; and Aberystwyth University. Some of the country’s top private consultants also gave their recommendations, as did Dr Kapusta of the Central Mining Institute, Poland.

In addition to discussing the progress that the Seren project has been making through its various work packages, the conversation also focused on Wales’s energy needs and how the GRC could help support the regeneration of the nation’s most impoverished areas.
