VII International Conference for Renewable Energy, Energy Saving and Energy Education

Request for EOI for ST 1 (646)

The Research Center for Renewable Energy Technologies (CETER), of Mechanical Engineer Faculty at the Higher Polytechnic Institute “José Antonio Echeverría” (ISPJAE) invites scientists, engineers, manufactures, investors, policy makers, energy users and other specialists to the VII International Conference for Renewable Energy, Energy Saving and Energy Education (CIER2011) to be celebrated from 1- 3 of June in The Conventions Palace of Havana. Within the conference’s framework there will be multiple workshops in related fields as, III International Workshop of Wind Energy, II International Workshop of Biomass and Biogas and I International Workshop for
Hydrogen. CIER 2011 provides an excellent platform to share experiences and promote synergies towards the challenge of achieving a sustainable energy culture.

 

The Seventh International Congress on Renewable Energy, Energy Saving and Education, CIER 2011, will take place in Havana next month to deal with topics such as the use wind energy and other renewable sources in Cuba.
Scientists, professionals and businessmen from 15 nations will participate in this event, scheduled from June 1 to 3, sponsored by the Center of Studies on Renewable Energy Technologies of the Higher Polytechnic Institute Jose Antonio Echevarria (ISPJAE), in the Cuban capital.

The president of the Organizing Committee, Conrado Moreno, told ACN that CIER 2011 aims at exchanging experiences on the latest innovations and advances in this field so as to face present challenges.

He explained that the participants will talk about projects to build wind farms, the generation of electric power, and the design of wind turbines, among other topics.

According to researches by several Cuban institutes, the Cuban potential in this filed rises up to 1,200 megawatts per hour (mw/h).

A Cuban specialist, Guillermo Leiva, affirmed that it is possible to take advantage of wind force throughout the north coast of the country, mainly in the central and eastern regions.

Leiva noted that the use of renewable energies is the only alternative in view of the prices of fossil fuels and their possible disappearance in the short term.

Cuba possesses two wind farms (Gibara I and II) in the eastern province of Holguin, which produced almost 10,000 mw for the National Electric System in 2010, and accounted for the saving of 2,225 oil tons.

More than 200 Cuban and foreign delegates will attend CIER 2011 to debate on biomass, energy saving and efficiency, among other topics.
