In the attempt to disseminate the positive practice and results of technological development concerning power generation problems, Society of Thermal Engineers of Serbia, following successful International events POWER PLANTS 2004, 2006, and 2008, is organizing International Conference POWER PLANTS 2010, in cooperation with the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS), under the auspices of the Ministry of Mining and Energy, Ministry of Science and Technology Development, Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Serbia. The Conference POWER PLANTS 2010 is foreseen to gather energy policy makers, company managers, researchers, technical experts, environmental engineers and the other professionals actively involved in the strategic, economic, social and environmental aspects of the research, development and operation of Power Industry, mostly from the member countries signatories of the TREATY establishing ENERGY COMMUNITY of the SOUTH EASTERN EUROPE (ECSEE) and from other countries, concerned with topics and implementation of the ECSEE TREATY.

Scope and Topics

1. Energy resources and sustainable development.(integrated energy policy concerning the sustainable development; characteristics of available energy resources used for power generation by thermal/hydro/wind and other Power Plants in the following period; planning, effective consumption, perspectives and improvement of coal characteristics as the main fuel used in thermal Power Plants);
2. Liberalization of electricity market, impact on energy efficiency and effective operation of Power Plants. (development and operation of the deregulated energy market; energy efficiency of all processes and equipments used for power generation by thermal /hydro/wind and other Power Plants; research and modeling of processes in steam boilers, turbines and other equipment of thermal/hydro/wind and other Power Plants; combined production of heat and power, reliability and availability of facilities and Power Plants; effective utilization and reduction of fuel consumption; optimization of processes, equipment, facilities and whole Power Plants; economic handling of processes; rationalizations and innovations of the production processes; introduction of system of quality);
3. Questions concerning Power Plants life cycle extension and introduction of new clean coal and low carbon power generation technologies and equipments. (policy and instruments for investment in new facilities; diagnostic of equipment conditions and remaining exploitation period, process diagnostic, planning, realization and analysis of revitalization, improvements of mechanical and electrical equipment);
4. Thermal/hydro/wind and other Power Plants exploitation problems (development and application of diagnostic methods and equipment for process monitoring and management; improvement of equipment regarding occurring processes; contemporary production organization, methods and tools for equipment maintenance);
5. Environmental aspects of power generation by thermal/hydro/ wind and other Power Plants (ecological aspects of exploitation and combustion of coal used in power generation; methods, technical and technological solutions and equipment for decreasing SOx, NOx, PM, as well CO2 emission and pollution/degradation of air, waterways and soil caused by Power Plants operation; experience in protection of environment).
