Booming economic growth, rapid industrialization and high standard of living of the global population demand more and more energy in different forms. Since the quantity of available energy from conventional resources shrinks day by day, development of newer or renewable energy technologies and improvement of conventional technologies become necessary to meet the energy demand in the future. While the quest for sustainable energy technologies persists to cater the need for energy, selective task groups of research and development community across the globe review continually current energy consumption methodologies from energy conservation point of view and advocate for a good understanding of the mechanisms involved in every step of energy transformations from the primary thermal or mechanical energy to the end-use forms of energy like electricity for both the improvements and innovations of the technology.

This conference will provide a unique platform for world-wide academia, engineers, industrialists, scientists and the governmental decision-makers to discuss on the advances in energy engineering and its allied fields. The themes for deliberations during the conference include newer developments in conventional energy sources, alternate energy sources and their utilization, analyses of energy systems, clean energy and bio-fuels, energy transformation and transmission, energy-consuming devices, energy instrumentation and environmental impacts.

Research papers on wide ranging topics pertaining to energy engineering and its allied fields of science and engineering will be presented during the first two days of the conference. A panel discussion will be held at the end of the second day for formulating the pragmatic suggestions towards implementing energy policy and improving energy systems. The final day of the conference will see the eminent researchers handling tutorial sessions for the benefit of research scholars.

The conference will be organized jointly by the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical & Electronics Engineering and will be held in the Auditorium Complex of Pondicherry Engineering College.
