Decentralized systems as a key factor in clean energy production for locations with limited infrastructure

Renewable energy systems have become indispensable for dealing with the worlds current climatic situation by reducing green house emissions and fossil fuel consumption, yet they also provide great alternatives for energy production in underdeveloped and remote regions of the world. Every day newer and smarter solutions are being developed enabling for new technologies to arise. By addressing these trough research and education, new solutions can be expected for the current and future energy concerns. The SusRES Conference encourages the scientific and pedagogic knowledge exchange by providing a platform in which a proactive and environmentally concerned audience can share its ideas.

Prospective authors are invited to submit an abstract of their contribution, which will be reviewed within a double-blind review process. Once the paper is accepted, the authors are asked to rework their paper according to the reviews and submit the full paper or poster contribution before the final paper submission deadline. We particularly would also like to encourage under- and postgraduate students to submit papers to the conference, which will be considered for a student award.
