and ROUND TABLE
Sustainable forms of energy today are a vital focus of societies everywhere. The big picture involves energy production with classical fossil and nuclear fuels that fulfill most current energy demands along with a rapidly increasing contribution from renewable energy. This symposium will cover all aspects of energy production and utilization.
- Energy production from gas, liquid and solid fossil fuels i.e. Gas/Oil/Coal that are not carbon neutral and generally considered to be polluted forms of energy production. Analysis and discussion will be undertaken on how these industries are coping with the reality of climate change and carbon emissions by decreasing their carbon foot print, improving efficiency and productivity, and capturing and sequestering CO2
- Energy production from nuclear fuels, an almost carbon free technology, but considered by some parts of society as a risky technology
- Developing and utilizing renewable energy technologies
The symposium will also cover but not be limited to efficient and sustainable efforts in existing technologies that provide the bulk of energy today.
- Advanced extraction technologies (evaluation, equipment, applications, construction, completion) for shale gas, coal bed methane and hydrocarbon production
- Operation, optimization and control in petrochemical plants
- Operation, optimization and control in nuclear plants
- Operation, optimization and control in coal plants
Improving safety and efficiency of current plants.
- Nuclear Plants: resilience from earthquakes, spent fuel disposition and utilization
- Petrochemical Plants: Detection of wear and fault prevention in gear boxes by monitoring the quality of oil: warning before failure occurs; wear optimization; oil aging, degradation of additives, and load optimization
- Coal Plants: decreasing the carbon foot print; capturing, sequestering, and using CO2
- Global trends of the energy and power market and technologies
- Conventional power generation (incl. Nuclear)
- Renewable power generation
- The 100% Renewable energy consumer model
- Power transmission and distribution
- Predicting operation & maintenance conditions
- The role of progressive measurement & control methods in exploiting unused potentials
- Climate Change-Reality or Illusion?
- Transformation Trends in the Energy Market
- Decarbonization, Decentralization and Digitalization
- Digitalization in service of energy
- The role of Accademia in the energy society
- Powerships and Floating LNG Terminals
- Meeting the needs of emerging and distressed energy markets
- Funding of Energy Investments
- Funding the energy technology transformation
- E-Mobility-Market trends & technologies
- Energy Storage Technologies
- Thermal techn.
- Electrical techn.
- Mechanical techn.
- Electrochemical techn.
- Chemical techn.
- Rear metals in use for energy
- Conventional vs. Renewable-Challenging the confrontation.
- Futuristic energy solutions
ROUND TABLE TOPICS
A round table discussion open to everyone interested will be organized at a specific date and time during the symposium. It will be a platform for high level representatives of various industries, technologies, and academic disciplines to freely discuss and debate all topics of this symposium, and identify positive and efficient pathways towards sustainability in industrial practices, technologies, and research.
Special attention will be devoted to the following topics that are emerging in the energy sector:
- Increasing contributions from renewable energy
- Energy storage technologies
- Improved designs for power transmission and distribution networks that work for both central and distributed power generation sources
- Electricity markets: regulated versus unregulated
You are cordially invited to actively participate in this symposium by submitting and presenting a paper, or by attending the round table. We look forward to meeting you at the Phuket, November 2020.
