TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR THE WORLD
What is the most cost effective way of producing Energy? What are the various technologies planned to be deployed in this sector? What are the various studies or researches performed in this area? How can we produce energy in an environmentally friendly way? Come to EnergyCon for answers to these and many more questions.
Welcome to IEEE EnergyCon 2010
The first Energy Conference sponsored by the IEEE Region-8 will be held during December 18-21, 2010 at Manama, Bahrain.
Energy is fundamental to the quality of our lives. We are totally dependent on an abundant and uninterrupted supply of energy for living and working. It is a key ingredient in all sectors of modern economies.
Topic areas include but are not limited to Reliable energy supply to the world, Reduced carbon generation, Smart grid and Power delivery, Reducing energy consumption, etc.
New electrical technology developments that help reduce energy use, carbon emissions, production efficiency or fossil fuel consumption are suitable for presentation. Also invited are papers that present technology reviews, including perspectives from different geographic regions, technology implications, market and policy interactions and challenges. Papers should address key questions of long-term sustainability, reliable supply on energy to the world, reduction in energy consumption, creation of cleaner environment, policy changes for large scale adoption, and significant barriers to adoption and commercial success. The conference will include industry presentations and an exhibition to showcase new technologies that will impact energy sustainability over the next few decades.
RELIABLE ENERGY SUPPLY TO THE WORLD:
Exploring the right technologies to expand fossil energy supplies including seismic surveying and reservoir processing, on-shore and off-shore drilling, intelligent fields, oil and gas plants, refining and distribution, process & control systems, pipelines and SCADA systems, related communications systems, computing & applications, cogeneration and transportation efficiency.
REDUCED CARBON GENERATION.
Renewable energy technologies including solar and wind power, hydropower, ocean, geothermal, fuel cells, bio-energy, hydrogen infrastructure, energy storage, carbon cap and trade or carbon tax, market incentives, grid management, economics of renewable energy, solutions for developing countries.
SMART GRID AND POWER DELIVERY.
Power delivery issues to support sustainable energy, Smart Grid, grid control with high penetration of renewables, real-time-pricing and impact on grid operation, microgrids, delivering “green” electrons, energy storage, carbon cap and trade or carbon tax, market incentives, grid solutions for developing countries.
REDUCING ENERGY CONSUMPTION.
Lighting technologies (LED, OLED, other), improving energy efficiency in industrial, commercial and consumer use, reducing heat load in data centers, reducing per family energy demand, real-time pricing of electricity, creating markets for “green” electrons, smart homes, impact of carbon tax, solutions for developing countries.
Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers based on their original work not exceeding 5 pages in length using the format specified above. We also encourage submissions of proposals on tutorials and special sessions on interesting topics. Regarding industry presentations, speakers are only required to submit abstracts.
