November Energy Showcase

MEMSI held its first Energy Innovation Showcase on the 1st of November, attracting more than 100 attendees from industry and across Monash. The Showcase was kicked off by a keynote speech by Giovanni Polizzi from Indra - a leading Spanish software company with $4 Billion/yr revenue across many energy and utility sector applications around the world. Indra joined MEMSI as one of its key researcher partners in the Net Zero Initiative

The event showcased 32 projects from across Monash’s Faculties of Arts, Engineering, Information Technology, and Science, the Monash Sustainable Development Institute (MSDI) and ClimateWorks Australia, Buildings & Properties, and the Centres of Excellence: FLEET, ACEx and ACES.

The projects included those funded by MEMSI under our cross-disciplinary seed grant as well as a range of other energy research projects.

The attendance and enthusiastic participation by Industry visitors from global organisations, such as Siemens, a major player in the global energy sector, demonstrates that MEMSI’s direction and activities are hitting the mark in meeting Monash’s strategic goals of research excellence and enterprise in a global market.
