10th SEE Forum meeting (21st Nov 2012) and 1st International Conference on Sustainable Future Energy System (22-23 Nov 2012)
About the Conference
The shift towards a global sustainable future energy system is now clear. Although fossil fuel will remain dominant in the next few decades, there are signs that the era of cheap oil is over as production costs and demand increases. There is also an increasing urgency to limit CO2 emission to the 450ppm level. Judicious use of available conventional energy along with the utilization of new and renewable energy resources are viable ways towards a sustainable and secure energy future. An International Energy Conference is being organized in Brunei Darussalam with the purpose of bringing the energy research community to a common platform to share recent advances in various areas of energy research and to deliberate on the possible pathways for clean energy solutions. This International Energy Conference is jointly organized by Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) Energy Research Group, Material Research Cluster, the Sustainable Energy and Environment (SEE) Forum and the ASEAN University Network (AUN). This conference is expected to receive more than 150 researchers from across the world.
