About the Conference
The main objective of this International Conference on Sustainable Energy Solutions for a Better Tomorrow (SESBT 2021) is to provide a platform to researchers and practitioners from both academic institutions and industries to meet and share cutting-edge developments in the areas of sustainable energy and associated disciplines. This conference also provides an opportunity to exchange research evidence and innovative ideas and also the challenges in achieving sustainable energy. SESBT 2021 will include presentations on the latest research on Carbon Neutrality, Electric & Hybrid Vehicles, Green & Energy Efficient Buildings, Sustainable Computing, Energy Storage, Computational Models for Energy Systems, Advanced Cryo Techniques, Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Energy Systems, Thermal System Optimization and Renewable Energy. This conference will also gather an excellent group of keynote speakers from around the globe who will share their latest research findings among the above mentioned conference themes.
After successfully organizing the First Version of this International Conference, we now invite you to join SESBT 2021, where you are sure to have a meaningful participation with scholars and academicians from around the world. Sustainable energy has become a buzz word in recent years. India being third among the world’s largest emitter of Greenhouse Gases (GHG’s), after China and US is striving very hard in achieving net zero carbon by 2050. Global warming and the resulting climate conditions have emerged as a serious threat to the well-being and progress of human life. This is mainly due to the increased extraction and burning of fossil fuels along with deforestation. The pledge made by over 190 countries including India in the Paris Agreement, 2015 with regard to reducing the emission due to GHG’s, is still not a reality. This is evident from the fact that the carbon dioxide emissions are constantly increasing at a rate of 2 ppm every year and have presently reached a level of 416 ppm.
In order to achieve the targeted carbon sink (33-35% reduction in emission intensity compared to 2005), 40% of the installed electrical capacity from renewable / nuclear by 2030, India will have to expand its forest cover to a larger extent and intensify the research towards green energy. With electricity generation and transportation sectors being the largest contributors to carbon emission in India, there exists larger scope of research in the areas of renewable energy like hydro, solar, wind, biomass, energy storage and electric vehicles. With major industrial sectors like steel, cement and petro-chemical industries posing technological challenges along with cost and competitiveness in moving toward zero carbon emission, Indian industries are becoming more energy efficient nowadays.
Our VIT Chennai Campus had been bestowed with Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) Gold Rated Green Campus Award in 2016 and our Vellore Campus had received Green Award for the year 2017 from Tamilnadu Government in recognition of its immense contribution towards increasing green cover and conserving natural resources. Recently, Electric Vehicles Incubation, Testing and Research Centre (eVIT – RC) was established in our Chennai Campus and its focus areas are Power Train, Noise Vibration and Harshness, Battery and Battery Management Systems, Power Quality Analysis, Wireless Charging, Light Weighting, and Ancillaries. Our CO2 RGTC and TIFAC centers at Vellore campus focus its cutting-edge research on development of various sustainable technologies.
The Green Office Groningen uses the Sustainability Roadmap as a starting point for all activities. Moreover, it coordinates and initiates projects related to sustainability at the University of Groningen.
As it is still uncertain about when the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions across the globe would end, the conference is currently planned to be conducted in VIRTUAL MODE only.
Scope for Publication
Authors will have the opportunity to submit their papers for publication in SCOPUS Indexed Journals, Conference Proceedings and Book Series. However, the manuscript will be subjected to the standard peer review process
SCOPUS Indexed Book Series will be announced during our Valedictory Session
