First International Conference on Energy and Sustainability (ENERGY 2007)
Venue: Ashurst Lodge
|Event Date/Time: Jun 20, 2007||End Date/Time: Jun 22, 2007|
The energy systems have evolved over a long period and more rapidly over the last two centuries, as a response to the requirements of industry and society, starting from combustion of fuels to exploiting nuclear energy and renewable resources. It is clear that the evolution of the energy systems is a continuous process, which involves constant technological development and innovation.
Whilst in the past, the driving forces behind the development of energy systems were the requirements of society and the current state of technology; nowadays this process is also shaped by the sustainability requirement. The concept of sustainable production and use of energy aims at preserving the natural resources which are vital for long-term development of a modern society. One of the greatest threats - global warming - requires that the emissions of greenhouse gases are reduced by relying more on renewable energy resources and clean technologies and also by increasing the efficiency of energy production and consumption. All these topics are subjects of continuous investigation and research.
This International Conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government interested in current developments in energy systems, and will include topics related to Sustainability
in Energy Production, Energy Storage and Distribution and Energy Management.
