Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 30 November 2018: ASHRAE has announced a call for papers for the seventh International Conference on Energy Research and Development (ICERD), to be held from November 19 to 21, 2019, in Kuwait.

Organised by Kuwait University and ASHRAE, the theme of the conference, ‘Advances in Energy Research & Development’, focuses on emerging energy conversion technologies, conservation and management strategies, the communiqué said.

“Emerging energy technologies will play a critical role toward advancing sustainability in the built-environment on a global scale,” said Walid Chakroun, conference chair. “This conference offers the international energy research and development community insights to optimise the utilisation of basic energy resources in the major energy consuming sectors, while helping decision-makers shape energy policies for the region.”

The conference steering committee is seeking papers focused on the development of high impact technologies and processes that are lifecycle cost effective, and reduce energy use and environmental consequences, the communiqué said. Papers should demonstrate how their topics, on the thermal and moisture performance of the exterior envelop of whole buildings, will lead to high performance buildings, demonstrate technologies ready for implementation and show the promise of short to mid-term adoption, the communiqué further said.

According to ASHRAE, suggested paper topics include:

  • Energy conversion and management
  • Energy conservation
  • Fuels and alternatives
  • Energy policy and planning
  • Combined and co-generation energy systems
  • Air-conditioning & refrigeration systems
  • Energy & environmental issues
  • Energy and sustainable development
  • Renewable energy technologies
  • Energy storage

The communiqué said that abstract submissions are due by December 24, 2018; if accepted, papers will be due by January 21, 2019.
