Sustainable energy supplies a major talking point at next year’s global forum

The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) is encouraging its rapidly-expanding network of stakeholders to submit abstracts for the 12th International Exergy, Energy and Environment Symposium or IEEES-12. Organised by a global network of universities, the symposium will bring together leading experts on sustainable energy systems.

In keeping with previous events, the scope of IEEES-12 is broad and ambitious. Participants will consider developments in renewable energy technologies, smart energy systems, hydrogen and fuel technologies, among others. IEEES-12 will pay particular attention to green transportation and sustainable mobility and discuss updates in the areas of desalination technologies and green vehicles.

IEEES-12 also coincides with the UN World Water Day. A special session will be held on the importance of water as well as desalination technologies and the challenges associated with the process of implementation. Internationally-recognised experts in the field of sustainability will present several thematic workshops and presentations.

CSE Dean Dr Mounir Hamdi, said they aim to provide well-balanced training in the developmental needs, economic growth, and environmental protection of the nation. The symposium, he said, highlights its core mandate of driving, proposing and encouraging research that ties into global concerns while searching for highly relevant solutions.

According to IEEES-12 Chair Dr Yusuf Bicer, IEEES-12 will undoubtedly become a major global forum for discussions on sustainable energy and interrelated issues.

We’re also cognizant that our network of academics and experts have vested interests in all the topics which will be discussed at IEEES-12. That’s why we’re encouraging them to submit abstracts and short papers ahead of next year’s initiative.’

IEEES-12 welcomes submissions on the following themes:

▪ Bio-Waste Utilisation ▪ Cogeneration and Micro-generation ▪ Combustion, Pyrolysis, and Gasification Technologies ▪ Desalination Technologies ▪ Electro-Chemical Devices (fuel cells, capacitors, batteries, etc) ▪ Energetic System Optimisation ▪ Energy Systems and Applications ▪ Environmental Engineering Technologies ▪ Environmental Impact Assessment ▪ Exergy Analysis and Modelling ▪ Fossil Fuels ▪ Green Buildings ▪ Green Energy Technologies ▪ Green Transportation Vehicles ▪ Heat and Mass Transfer ▪ Hydrogen Production and Utilisation Technologies ▪ Life Cycle Assessment ▪ New Materials for Energy Applications ▪ Nuclear Energy ▪ Refrigeration and Heat Pump Systems ▪ Renewable Energy Systems ▪ Smart Grids ▪ Sustainable Communities ▪ Development ▪ Sustainable Mobility ▪ Synthetic Fuels ▪ Thermal Systems and Applications ▪ Thermodynamic Optimisation

Abstract submissions are open until 15 November. Accepted abstracts will be announced on 1 December 2019. Visit the HBKU website for more information.
