​​​​​RE Asia Conference 2015 : Call for Abstracts is now open

Published on: 01-Apr-2015

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS


You are cordially invited to submit abstracts for presentation at the RE Asia Conference 2015 (RE Asia). RE Asia is planned to be part of the Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES), and will be held in conjunction with Singapore International Energy Week 2015 (SIEW 2015), a gathering of over 10,000 research, business, and policy leaders. The Conference is expected to bring together 300-400 academics, researchers, professional engineers, government policy makers, and business professionals from the domains of Smart Grids, Sustainable Mobility, Renewable Energy Integration, Offshore Renewable Energy, Power-to-Gas & Fuels, Biomass, among others.

The conference will consist of 3 tracks:

Smart Grids, Sustainable Mobility & Renewable Energy Integration

The development of smart-grids presents a major shift for the utility industry as customers may no longer be just the buyers, but can also become electricity producers, which, in turn, will lead to significantly enhanced penetration of distributed production resources. The smart grids track in RE Asia 2015 will gather leading innovators and strategists in the electric utility industry and government institutions, including research institutes and regional regulatory bodies. Presentations will address industry and academia perspectives on smart-grid design and operations, including reliability, energy management, micro-grids and interoperability standards. Integration of renewables and grid dynamics along with the increasing penetration of electric vehicles will also be covered. The forum is an opportunity to share ideas and get updated on technologies, policies and industry view-points   

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • ● Systems Design and Operations
  • ● Energy Storage and Networks
  • ● AC Micro-Grids, DC Micro-Grids and Hybrid AC-DC Micro-Grids
  • ● Medium Voltage DC (MVDC) Transmission, Distribution & Protection
  • ● Micro-Grid Standards for Interoperability & Control
  • ● Energy Storage Challenges and Advances in Mainstream Power Distribution Networks
  • ● Renewable Energy Grid Integration: Methods and Applications
  • ● Power Electronics and Intelligent Power Management for Smart Energy Needs
  • ● Distribution Sensors Network and Communication Technologies: Approaches and Protocols
  • ● Advances in Transmission System Network Management: On-line Metering and Diagnostics
  • ● Economics and Markets for Smart Grids in South-East Asia
  • ● Sustainable Mobility: Vehicles & Infrastructures
  • ● Electric Vehicle Propulsion Systems
  • ● Electric Vehicle Energy Storage and On-board Energy Management
  • ● Electric Vehicle Fleets in the Context of Sustainable Mobility
  • ● Synthetic Gas Transportation Systems
  • ● Fuel Cell driven Electric Vehicles with/without Battery back-ups
  • ● Electric Energy Distribution Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles
  • ● Business Models, Market Integration and Policies 


Offshore Renewable Energy

Offshore renewables are of key interest to developed and developing regions as they contribute to energy security and do not require arable land for deployment. Accordingly, academic and Industrial researchers have been focusing on technology innovation and development towards enhancing offshore renewables’ scalability, reliability and energy production. RE Asia 2015 will provide an interactive platform for discussion of several topics toward the deployment of wind, tidal and wave energy devices in the tropics and the associated enabling technologies across the value chain in energy generation, transmission, and distribution. This will be a forum for leading energy professionals, policy makers and business professionals to meet and discuss the technical and business solutions to the barriers faced in offshore renewables energy adoption and to discover the opportunities that await them.
Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • ● Wind and Ocean Resource Assessment
  • ● Wind and Tidal Farm Optimization based on Field Conditions and Turbine Technology
  • ● Advanced Device Development for Wind, Tidal and Wave
  • ● Materials, Coatings and Sub-structures for Offshore Renewables
  • ● Simulation, Prototyping and Test Bedding of Offshore Renewable Systems
  • ● Offshore renewable energy: installation and maintenance
  • ● Electrical Systems and Grid integration towards stand-alone and remote grids
  • ● Remote Sensing and Condition-based maintenance 
  • ● Economic feasibility and energy policy


Alternative Energy Paths: Power-to-Gas & Fuels, Biomass & others

Despite the environmental benefits of renewable energies, the transition to large-scale deployment presents several challenges.  Their intermittency stresses the electric energy systems by requiring increased spinning reserves and/or the integration of energy storage to compensate for the variability of supply.  Power-to-gas & fuels, a range of technologies to convert excess electrical energy from renewables into synthetic gas or fuels, is an alternative route to the traditional energy storage path (such as pumped hydro and batteries).  On the other hand, biomass is also an alternative energy path to the conventional power generation, and has gained increasingly more attention in recent years. RE Asia 2015 shall be a forum for participants from gas and electric utilities, energy companies, research institutions, investors, and government organisations to gain further information on the progress and challenges of power-to-gas & fuel technologies.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • ● Conversion of Renewable Resources to Hydrogen
  • ● Conversion of Hydrogen and Oxides of Carbon to Syngas and/or Synthetic Hydrocarbon Fuels
  • ● Integration of Power-to-Gas & Fuels into Renewable Energy Platform and Conventional Fossil Power Plants
  • ● Biomass Application
  • ● Waste Heat Storage/Recovery and Process Optimization
  • ● Thermochemical and Thermal Energy Storage System
  • ● Applications, Case Studies, Innovative Systems and Optimisation
  • ● Market Conditions, Drivers and Barriers
