Welcome to the world's first international conference on OTEC and developing countries! The object of the conference is to bring together the world's leading OTEC researchers with organizations that specialize in funding, people from aid organizations, researchers in development/humanitarian issues/sustainability, and governmental institutions. The goal of the conference is to establish connections between people who, within a few years' time, can provide African nations with electricity and fresh water, and ultimately bring an exciting clean energy source to many countries throughout the world. The conference has three tracks:
- OTEC and similar technologies (energy from wind, waves etc)
- funding of cleantech
- humanitarian issues: how can the African people benefit the most from water plus electricity from OTEC facilities?
The conference is arrranged by the OTEC Africa organization and held at The School of Business and IT at the University of Borås, Sweden. Running presentations of the three tracks simultaneously makes the conference highly time-efficient. As the conference is all about connecting people, it will be a friendly event in a rather informal setting.
The programme is still under development, which means that more presentations are welcome!
The Early registration price for the conference is only 170€, inluding two lunches, a friendly dinner, and a book sent out after the conference. Note that companies and other organizations are welcome to market their products and services, for no additional charge.
