A four days International Conference on Power Generation Systems and Renewable Energy Technologies will be held in the beautiful Capital City of Islamabad, at the International Islamic University, Old Campus Auditorium (Faisal Masjid), Sector E-8, in Islamabad, Pakistan. It is planned during the comfortable early winter weather on November 29, 2010. The foreign and Pakistani experts will be invited to deliver their Keynote talks, contributory lectures and poster presentations on the conference topics. The topics are selected to elaborate on the theme of the conference on new power generation technologies and available hydro-power capacity in Pakistan. This conference offers an opportunity for engineers, scientists, professionals, policymakers, investors and other parties to review recent developments in the energy systems and technologies.
The conference topics beside hydro power, nuclear power and fossil fuel power will also include subjects like: Energy applications of nanotechnologies, green power energy, bio-fuels energy, sustainable energy, solar energy, wind power, clean energy technology, renewable energy as well as climate change effects on energies. All these topics are important for development of the economy of a country. Today, the world’s oil, gas and coal energy supply has proven to be contributors to our environmental problems. Since exhaustible energy supplies are limited, there is an urgent need to focus attention on development of renewable energy sources and use of energy efficient technologies. With increasing scope, scale, research and development the costs of renewable energy technologies will come down. It is estimated that renewable energy could contribute at least half of all electric power in large economies in the future. The renewable energy will drive world’s economic system in the future as its share rose to about 15 to 20% in 2008 with an estimated investment reaching to the tune of USD 100 to 130 billion.

The outcome of the topics, lectures, expert discussions, presentations and latest R&D on different power generation systems and technologies will help our societies in Asia and particularly in Pakistan to get rid of energy crises and power shortages. The experts will help us during the discussions and meetings for possible solutions on our industrial and domestic energy production goals.

The young engineers/professionals will be given a chance to present their findings on the conference topics. Conference will provide an opportunity for everyone to come and join us in the day to day discussions, lectures, presentations with their new ideas covering everything from a micro project to a mega project. The Conference theme covers as many topics as possible, under different fields of electricity/power generation, sustainable, as well as, renewable systems and technologies.


The energy related and other parties will be provided space for display of their products, materials and literature for the show, during the conference four days. The parties will be asked to pay Rupees 20, 000/- for four days, or, Rupees 5,000/- per day, if they want to stay for less than four days.


The outcome of the conference will be broad based for the public sector as well as private enterprises; the benefits will be equally achieved by all the concerned parties, whether local or international. We definitely need sponsors for this conference, to meet its expenditure which will be in the tune of 20 million rupees (about USA Dollars 25000.00). The sponsors will be recognized/put on all conference literature as well as in the proceedings book.


The papers will be based on all the topics related to the objectives of the conference. The technical papers will be accepted up to 8 pages on A-4 size sheets, this should include figures and tables. All the authors are requested to send one original hard copy plus a soft copy on CD to Conference Secretariat address; also send one copy by E-mail (electronically) to The paper format will be used as described by the IEEE journal.

The poster presentations will be displayed on 1-meter wide and 1.2 meter high board, provided by the organizers. All the technical papers will be reviewed by the subject experts and these will be published in the conference proceedings book. The oral paper presentations will be made on power point slides, shown by multi-media projector, in the designated halls. The posters as well as oral presentations will be treated equally in the proceedings book. The Keynote talks will be given 40- minutes duration with 10-minutes for question answers (total 50-minutes), where as oral/contributory papers will be given 15-minutes for presentation and 5-minutes for question answers (total 20-minutes).
