Renewable Energy Hybrid Conference 2021 Announcement and Call for Papers-03122020.pdf
Renewable Energy Hybrid Conference Registration Form-17012021.pdf
Renewable Preliminary Programme 07052021.pdf
The Colloquium on Renewable Solutions for an Energy Intensive Industry will provide an overview of renewable technologies for electricity and process heat commercially available and currently under development. The workshop will host presentations from universities, research institutes and energy supply companies. Presentations from industry on renewable energy applications are also invited.
Global agreements to aim for less than 2°C global warming requires CO2 emissions to achieve net zero by 2060. Energy intensive industries are often criticized for lack of emissions reductions. In addition, carbon tax and its implications for industry necessitates an evaluation of alternatives to fossil fuel use. This colloquium strives to have an open discussion on the technologies available, the barriers to their implementation and how to overcome them.
Announcing PReMA project sponsorship of the Renewable Solutions for Energy Intensive Industry Colloquium:
The PReMA project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No 820561 to investigate solar thermal preheating technology in manganese ferroalloy production in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and electricity consumption. Come fi nd out about these and other renewable solutions at the Colloquium.
Technical topics include
At this point in time, the event is planned as a hybrid conference with international participation, which will allow for contact and online attendance and presentation. We are still in Stage 1 Lock down in South Africa as a result of COVID-19. We will monitor the situation, and if it appears that the effects of the pandemic are still such as to pose a threat to the health and safety of delegates, or restrictions are lifted to allow for more contact participation and international travel, the event delivery method will be adjusted accordingly.
Please submit your abstracts and papers as these will be peer reviewed and published for all contact and hybrid/online conferences.
To provide an opportunity for energy intensive industry to engage with companies and researchers in the renewable energy field. To inform on the state of technology development and promote the adoption of renewable energy solutions.
The colloquium is aimed at delegates from industry operating mines, smelters, kilns and other minerals processing units requiring heating, cooling or electricity and includes:
