Call For Papers

Overview

The 2nd International Conference on Energy Production and Management in the 21st Century: The Quest for Sustainable Energy follows the very successful meeting held in Ekaterinburg in 2014. The aim of the meeting is to discuss the future of energy production and management in a changing world

The objective is to compare conventional energy sources, particularly hydrocarbons, with a number of other ways of producing energy; emphasising new technological developments, based on renewable resources such as solar, hydro, wind and geothermal. A key issue is the conversion of new
sustainable sources of energy into useful forms (electricity, heat, fuel), while finding efficient ways of storage and distribution.

In many cases the challenges lie as much with production of such renewable energy at an acceptable cost, including damage to the environment, as with integration of those resources into the existing infrastructure. The changes required to progress from an economy based mainly on hydrocarbons to one taking advantage of sustainable energy resources are massive and require considerable scientific research as well as the development of advanced engineering systems. Such progress demands close collaboration between different disciplines in order to arrive at optimum solutions.

The Conference will also discuss the energy use of industrial processes, including the imbedded energy contents of materials, such as those in the built environment. Energy production, distribution and usage, result in environmental risks which need to be better understood. They are part of the energy economics and relate to human environmental health as well as ecosystems behaviour.
