Report of Ms. Gail Hayhoe, MASc Student, University of Toronto, supported by the IAS CMD WIE Initiative to attend SAE2
The Summer Academy on Energy '16, held at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, was a wonderful experience, full of lectures, group work, and site visits all in a city steeped with culture. The summer academy entailed 11 hours of professional lectures, 15 hours group working on a case study of a fictional country's power system and 4 hours of professional site visits. Some of my favourite activities were the guest lecture by IEEE IAS's President-Elect, Tomy Sebastian, group work on the case study, and listening to each group's solutions to the case study. The organizers also arranged a bus tour of the city to see historical landmarks and other opportunities to appreciate Budapest, which the international attendees truly benefitted from and enjoyed. I am very grateful for the support to assist in attending this event.

The Summer Academy on Energy ’16 held at Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BUTE), was a very great opportunity to learn more, have new friends and discover the beautiful city of Budapest.During the summer academy, we attended 11 hours of professional lectures in we handled different topics like the medium-term energy strategies, the different types of renewable energy, the nuclear energy in the world (role, use, safety, cost, effects), renewable energy from the view of economists, the blackouts in the power systems, and the best lecture was presented by the IEEE IAS president—elect Mr. Tomy Sebastian about the automotive electrification. We also had 15 hours of group working on a case study of a fictional country’s power system.Moreover, we had 4 hours of professional site visits: the KFKI research campus (the Budapest Neutron Center BNC and the Nuclear Research Laboratory) and the High Voltage Laboratory in the BUTE.The organizers also took us to visit some historical sites, restaurants, we went on a bus tour around the city and we played some cultural games.Overall, this experience will allow me to achieve the high standards I’m aiming for. So I’m very grateful for the support to attend such a great event.
