ASHRAE has announced a call for papers for the 7th International Conference On Energy Research and Development (ICERD), Nov. 19 to 21, 2019 in Kuwait.
Organized 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.
“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 optimize the utilization 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. Papers should demonstrate how their topics, on the thermal and moisture performance of the exterior envelope of whole buildings, will lead to high performance buildings, demonstrate technologies ready for implementation and show the promise of short to mid-term adoption.
Suggested paper topics include:
