Renewable Energy Symposium: Fundraising Event for Fukushima - 11 March 2013

Renewable Energy Symposium: Fundraising Event for Fukushima to be held on 11 March 2013.

Event website is: http://www.after-tsunami.org/

The event is a symposium on renewable energy in Scotland in connection with Fukushima local government's decision to attain 100% electricity from reneweable energy by 2040. Through the event we hope to connect the University of Edinburgh and the University of Fukushima.

Donations raised at the event would be sent to Fukushima Future Centre for Regional Revitalization, which was set up by University of Fukushima after the disaster in March 2011 for promoting renewable energy.

This event's cohosting bodies are Institute for Energy Systems (University of Edinburgh), International Network on Offshore Renewable Energy, and the Day after the Tsunami Committee.

Live Video Streaming of the event will occur from 6:25pm via:

The live video stream will be relayed into "The Venue@Vue", a virtual worlds meeting space on the Virtual University of Edinburgh (Vue) regions in Second Life.

Sample Chart for Interpretation (for parts of 26-Mar-2011 and 27-Mar-2011):

Interpretation Notes

  1. Row 8 indicates Ibaraki Prefecture where Fuchushima Plant is based.
  2. Charts are one page per day with one hour time slices per column.
  3. Radiation dose is provided in microsieverts (μSv) per hour (μSv)
  4. Page 3 provides a simple guide diagram for typical radiation dose rates per year.
  5. Compare per hour and year doses by *24*365 (e.g. approx. 1.14 μSv per hour = 10,000 μSv per year).
