Advances in space tech for climate action at EMEX

Events  |  23 November, 2020  |  Reading time: 2 minutes

26 November 12:00–13:00 BST  |  Online event

EMEX is an annual trade event and platform that connects industrial and commercial energy consumers with leading experts, policy makers and suppliers to share their knowledge and experiences from successful implementations of energy efficiency strategies.

The conference takes place this year online on the 26 November. Space4Climate will be featured in the technology session which takes place 11:50–13:00.

Space4Climate has participated in EMEX for the last couple of years with Pufferfish, having scientific and industry members on hand to answer questions about space-enabled climate data products and services.

Talk summary:

Advancements in space-based technologies for climate action

The UK Earth Observation community are world leading in designing, delivering and exploiting high-quality climate observations from satellites. These observations offer evidence and assurance, for risk disclosure, monitoring environmental change and taking climate action. For those businesses seeking to exploit this data for mass market, policy and operational decision making products, this talk will provide a valuable insight into new technology including the possibility of solar energy from space, missions currently being designed, soon to launch missions including Microcarb – a new satellite with a city sweep mode for detecting carbon emissions from cities, newly launched satellites as well as Earth observation based data analytics infrastructure and climate data products available now from climate risk disclosure to asset level emission monitoring through to wide-scale monitoring of green house gas emission concentrations.
