What the Risk and Resilience Day is all about
Energy Systems | Risk | Resilience | Uncertainty | Reliability | Modelling | Understanding
The EPSRC Supergen Energy Networks Hub Risk and Resilience Day is continuing the tradition of the previous Durham Risk Day series (2010-2014) and is an annual seminar for researchers involved in all aspects of risk and uncertainty analysis applied to current and future power and energy systems.
This one-day event will showcase the best research and industrial applications across the following topics:
Reliability analysis of system assets
resilience and high impact low probability events
Control and optimisation of uncertain power systems
Planning future energy systems under uncertainty
Modelling and quantifying uncertainty in energy systems
Communicating risk to energy system stakeholders and policy makers
The event (on 8 March 2023) is an in-person-only event and will be a mix of keynote presentations, oral presentations, and posters. We need you and your research to make it a success so make sure you get involved and make the most of this unique opportunity to meet other researchers focused on these crucial topics.
Dr Anupama Sen
University of Oxford
Dr Ian Llewellyn
Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy
The EPSRC Supergen Energy Networks Hub Risk and Resilience Day 2023 will feature two must-see keynote talks:
Anupama Sen is Head of Policy Engagement for the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at the University of Oxford, and an Official Fellow in Environmental Change at Reuben College, Oxford. Prior to the Smith School she spent over 10 years at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, where she was Senior Research Fellow, Executive Director of the Electricity Research Programme and Deputy Director of the Energy Transition Initiative.
Anupama will be talking about...
The New Energy State: The economics of risk and the recasting of energy market governance Anupama's presentation will focus on the evolution of risk perceptions in energy sector economics and policy across different geographical contexts, the regulatory and policy instruments to address it, and implications for the role of the state.
Ian Llewellyn is Head of the Technical Energy Specialists at the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) where he leads a team of energy engineering professionals that supply independent advice covering the range of engineering technologies that BEIS utilises to achieve its climate change targets. His current research interests are looking at how information and communication technologies can be used to meet the Government’s net zero targets.
Ian will be talking about...
UK electricity consumers have very high expectations about avoiding any risk of losing supply in the electricity network- for example, overall reliability of supply for the National Electricity Transmission System during 2019-20 was 99.999967%. But adding renewable generation into the supply mix inherently increases these risks as these technologies are affected by the intermittency of wind, solar and tidal resources. In this talk, we will look at work going on at BEIS to model the increased risk of generation not meeting demand in a system with a high penetration of renewables and the effect of technologies such as storage, demand side response and biomass generation on controlling the risk to levels acceptable to the consumer.
Make sure you come along to the EPSRC Supergen Energy Networks Hub Risk and Resilience Day 2023 to hear these amazing keynote speakers.

Submissions are now closed - thanks for all the great summaries that you sent.
We have got a great even lined up - scroll down to check out the programme
You can submit anything to the Risk and Resilience Day
It can be something you've already published, something you've not published, something you're about to publish, or even just a new idea you're working on. Presenting at the Risk and Resilience Day is about showcasing your research and starting conversations. Presenting will not stop you from publishing your ideas elsewhere - we promise!
To be a part of the Risk and Resilience Day in 2023...
You need to submit a one-page summary (using this template here) that describes what you will be presenting on the day. No extended abstracts or papers are required. You can include any figures or equations you need to clearly and concisely communicate your ideas. Just make sure you clearly cover:
The motivation for the research.
The unique aspects and novelty that make what you have done interesting.
The wider applicability and value of what you have done.
Once you have written your summary - please send it to email@example.com
We'll decide whether to put you down for an oral or poster presentation based on the mix of submissions we receive but if you have a preference for an oral or poster - let us know in your email. We can't promise you'll get your request as it all depends on space - but we'll do our best to keep everyone happy.

8 March 2023
Supergen Energy Networks Hub Risk and Resilience Day 2023
The big day!
The following information is provided as a rough guide to the time and format of the different presentation types. This is not guaranteed at this stage and we might need to change timings depending on the submissions we receive.
If you have an oral presentation:
You will be given 12 minutes to present (with 3 minutes for Q&A afterwards).
We will be very strict on time to keep things running so please do not bring along a 20 minute presentation and just talk quickly – that never works. There are no limits on slides, only on time – which will be strictly enforced.
Please bring your slides along with you on the day, or email them in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your presentation will happen on a Windows PC, so if you have prepared your slides on a Mac, you might want to make them into a pdf to be safe.
Don’t worry, there’s plenty of time in the schedule for you to have longer discussions about the details.
If you have a poster presentation:
Your poster must be A0 and portrait orientation. You need to bring your printed poster with you. We will not print it for you.
We will not be accepting A4 slides on a poster board (we know you’re not that lazy... but just in case). There’s no template – just make it look good.
You will also need to stand and present a 1 minute overview of your poster in the Poster Introduction Speed Round. You'll be doing this without slides. You’ll basically be trying to get the audience interested so they come over to say hello in the following poster sessions.
University Building, City, University of London, Northampton Square,
London, EC1V 0HB, UK
Wednesday 8 March 2023
09:00 - 17:30
Registration is now closed, sorry if you missed out on your ticket
Unfortunately nothing this good comes for free and we need to charge a small registration fee (£40) to cover basic costs like event hire and food. It's still an absolute bargain though!
Places are limited so don't leave it to the last minute, register early to secure your place.
Please note you will not be able to turn up and register on the day! Registration will close a few days before the event to make sure we know the final numbers.
