EnergyTech 2011 will survey promising technologies in electrical power and energy to address an urgency in sustainable energy. This new conference will bring together experts in diverse areas to review and explore technologies that promise significant contributions towards addressing a looming world energy crisis.
Topics will include: smart grid, energy storage, wind power, plug-in electric vehicles, co-energy, distributed generation, efficiency and conservation, power electronics, photovoltaics, solar energy, and other alternative and renewable means of power generation. Submitted papers will be peer reviewed and the conference proceedings will be published on IEEE Xplore. Both research and application papers are invited, with an emphasis on how the technology described can help address the global concern.
Keynote addresses will be given by representatives of DOE, ARPA-E, NSF and Draper Labs (see "keynotes" tab).
Attendees for whom this conference is intended include: power and energy researchers and practitioners; engineers entering energy research, desiring an overview of the current technological challenges in power and energy; research directors and investors seeking clarity of the most promising energy technologies; and planners and representatives desiring background on energy alternatives impacting public policy.
