The IEEE Green Technologies Conference provides an open forum for the Engineers, Academia and Industrial Community, that is Researchers, Innovators, and Regulators, from around the world to collaborate on the development and deployment of sustainable Technologies which are environmentally friendly.  Interested individuals from around the world are invited to participate in developing and applying Technological solutions to a number of global concerns.

Media reports on rising CO2 levels in the world causing climate issues.  Global dependence on finite fossil fuels for energy production and transportation, much of which comes from unstable countries, continues to result in wildly fluctuating energy expense.  Green Technologies can be a backbone to solve many concerns to help stabilize energy needs in the world.

The global development and use of large-scale wind, solar voltaic and solar thermal farms, plus bio mass and water production, is being utilized to convert to sustainable electrical energy and is displacing conventional electrical generation.  So now, the forecasting of weather has taken on new urgency in support of efficient use of all technologies to support the reliability in use of Green technologies. To provide a reliable electrical grid, we must not only meet the current and projected loads but review energy generation, usage, and storage in support of the newer infrastructure.

Researchers have provided development and deployment of newer storage technologies.  This is evident with the replacement of bus and cars that use fossil fuels with vehicles that use improved battery technologies.  These newer competing battery technologies resulted in higher energy storage densities to make electrical usage feasible.

Batteries are the most recognized electrical energy storage technology today. Lithium-Ion batteries support multiple applications from computers, transportation, and just in general large-scale energy storage.

The storage of solar energy by the conversion of biomass is fairly new technology.  Conversion of biomass material to synthetic natural gas and fuel pellets provides energy storage as an application of Green Technologies in replacing use of fuel oil and felling of forests.

The Green Technologies conference was developed and deployed to support the local and global communities to remain independent.  Regulators play an important role in determining energy expense with the use of infrastructure, metered energy usage, outages and production in support of customer services in general, community safety so we need them involved too.

The 12th annual Green Technologies Conference presents a continuing opportunity to support the collaboration of Green Technologies.  We seek your support by providing an opportunity to make a difference in the world through sharing innovative ideas.
