At the AER Spring Plenaries, regional policy makers reiterated their interest in the World Sustainable Energy Days, one of Europe’s largest annual conferences on sustainable energy. The WSED17 event, which took place from 1 to 3 March 2017 in Upper Austria (AT) gathered around 700 participants from 59 countries achieving resounding success.
What was WSED17 all about?
8 Conferences, treating relevant thematics as energy efficiency, biomass and sustainable buildings and 3 interactive events with technical study visits, allowing participants to gain first-hand information and to discuss specific questions on-site with the project operators.
Through a call for papers, around 80 papers were submitted by young researchers from 35 countries in the fields of energy efficiency and biomass. Some of the papers were selected and presented and two of them received the Best Young Researcher Awards:
• Best Young Researcher Biomass: Rebecca Trojanowski – “Repeatability in particulate and gaseous emissions from pellet stoves” and
• Best Young Researcher Energy Efficiency: Modar Yasin and Felix Klinker – “Cooling performance of phase change material systems”
Another interactive part of the event is “the voting”. During this session, the audience was invited to answer questions regarding their opinions towards the different conference topics. You can have a look at the results!
The 2018 edition of the World Sustainable Energy Days will take place from 28 February – 2 March 2018. The deadline for the Call for Papers & Speakers is 10 October 2017.
