April 19, 2016 — April 21, 2016 | Malé, Maldives
The REM2016, with the theme of “Powering a renewable future with mini/microgrid” will provide a platform focused on three tracks, namely technology innovations, high penetration of renewable energy, and implementation, commercialization and financing. Island renewable energy systems are of particular importance in the Symposium.
Abstracts should follow the event theme while keeping in mind that REM2016 also aims to discuss variable generation and controllable demand, and the efficient and effective use of space to supply, convert and use renewable energy resources, via smart grids and intelligent energy systems. The event also aims to discuss solving the challenges of intermittent power generation and mismatching of energy supply and demand over a time scale.
First Abstract: 10 February
Acceptance: 28 February
Final Paper: 15 March
Energy systems have been in transition, extending their boundaries beyond the energy systems themselves, characterized in the 3-D interactive extensions that relate to the dimensions of physical Space, Time scale and Human behaviors, so called Space-Time-Human 3D extension. One of the important changes associated with increased widespread use of renewable energy calls for investigation of the new challenges: variable generation and controllable demand. This defines the aim and scope of the Applied Energy Symposium and Forum, REM2016: Renewable Energy Integration with Mini/Microgrid to be held in April 19-21, 2016 in Maldives organized by Asian Development Bank (ADB) together with Applied Energy Journal and Applied Energy Innovation Institute (AEii).
New smart grids and intelligent energy systems are tools that aim to solve the challenges of intermittent power generation and mismatching of energy supply and demand over a time scale. Human behaviors are also integrated into the energy systems to interactively improve the sustainability.
The REM2016, with the theme of “Powering a renewable future with mini/microgrid” is geared towards providing a platform focused on three tracks, namely technology innovations, high penetration of renewable energy, and implementation, commercialization and financing. Island renewable energy system is of particular importance in the Symposium. All stakeholders are invited, including academia, inventors, project developers, financiers, suppliers, policy decision makers, even the public and end-users to participate in the conference. The new approaches and innovative solutions to solve the challenging issues associated with new transitions of future renewable energy systems will be explored. Its interdisciplinary and synthetic approach not only reveals the systematic overview, but also detailed components of renewable energy systems.
The event consists of keynote sessions, panel discussions, academic papers sessions, and on-site tour of renewable pilot projects.
Track 1: Technology Innovations of Mini/Microgrid
Track 2: High Penetration of Renewable Energy in mini/microgrids
Track 3: Implementation, Commercialization, and Financing of Renewable Integration of Mini/Microgrids and Regulations, Policy Issues.
