8th International conference on Energy and Sustainability
Depletion of resources and severe environmental effects resulting from the continuous use of fossil fuels has motivated interest in renewable energy resources and the search for sustainable energy policies. Changes required to progress from an economy focussed on hydrocarbons to one taking advantage of sustainable renewable energy resources needs considerable scientific research. Energy policies and management are of primary importance to achieve the development of sustainability. Challenges lie as much in the conversion from renewable energies (wind, solar etc) to useful forms (electricity, heat, fuel) at an acceptable cost including damage to the environment as in the integration of these resources into the existing infrastructure. Diverse topics at the Conference involve collaboration between different disciplines in order to arrive at solutions, including studies of materials, energy networks, new energy resources, storage solutions, waste to energy systems, smart grids etc.
