Energy supply conference call for papers

Dear colleagues,

on behalf of the Technische Universität Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin and the University of Luxemburg we invite scientists and engineers from all over the world to discuss technical, economic, social and ecologic aspects of the implementation of microenergy systems in rural and developing areas.

For a long time decentralized energy systems have been regarded as transitional solutions towards a centralized energy supply in developing countries or as a negligible niche market in developed countries. In the context of the required global transition from fossil fuel-based towards renewable energy systems, new perspectives on centralized and decentralized approaches are emerging. The conference would like to complement the macro perspective by introducing and discussing results concerning decentralized energy systems on the micro level. Microenergy systems comprise solutions for single households (e.g. solar home systems, im-proved cooking stoves, wind energy or biogas plants) as well as technologies for several households or communities (e.g. hydro power, biogas or wood gasification plants).

Central questions will be: Which lessons can be learned from experiences made up to date in different countries? Which innovative approaches have been introduced or are going to be introduced in the near future? Can existing decentralized energy systems be seen as key options in regard to poverty reduction and sustainability achievement? What is the potential of these systems for further advancement and extension? What kinds of technology and service systems are needed? How will the interrelations between centralised and decentralized energy approaches look like in the future?
