A call for projects was launched as a prelude to the 6th International Conference on Renewable and Sustainable Energy (IRSEC'18), to be held from 5 to 8 December 2018 in Rabat, Morocco.
The 6th edition of the International Conference on Renewable and Sustainable Energy (IRSEC’18) could be called “Play before the stakes”. It is the innovation made by the organisers of this annual meeting, with a qualifying competition at the event. This is a call for projects. Researchers from around the world can submit their research works before June 30, 2018. A committee of more than 120 experts will evaluate the works to select those who will be invited to Irsec’18.
The first edition of the International Conference on Renewable and Sustainable Energy was initiated in March 2013 in Ouarzazate (desert city located south of Morocco editor’s note). Six years later, the issues that led to the creation of this conference have evolved. In addition to encouraging technical and scientific research in the field of renewable energies, Irsec aims to provide a forum for exchange between experts, researchers, industrialists and decision makers in the fields of renewable energies and energy efficiency. Technically supported by international organisations, such as the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and Ises (International Solar Energy Society), Irsec also provides an opportunity for Moroccan academics and industrialists to present their research work to experts and find opportunities for collaboration to set up and finance projects.
This year’s edition is organised by the Mediterranean Space of Technology and Innovation (MSTI), the Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (Masen), the Mohammed V University of Rabat, the German Cooperation (GIZ) and the Abdelmalek Essaadi University of Tetouan, in partnership with several nationally and internationally renowned organisations, Irsec’18 covers a wide range of current topics, including renewable energy technologies, energy efficiency, green energy, climate change, sustainable energy systems and smart grids. Among other activities on the program are workshops and tutorials led by international experts and a large exhibition space designed to welcome national and international manufacturers.
