With the rapid techno-industrial growth and energy-intensive human lifestyle over the last few decades, the needs for different approaches to meet the ever-growing energy demands have also been amplified significantly. However, the depletion of natural resources like fossil fuels, oil and gas reserves and the associated high CO2 emission are the major concerns of the global society, which drives the interest in the experts and researchers of industry and academia for further deliberation and efforts on reliable, efficient, and sustainable energy technologies.

With this global context, SSTP-RTECT2020, the short-term staff training program has been intended to create a platform for sharing the knowledge and deliberations on recent trends in different energy technologies to the global community. The basic objective of this short term training program is to appraise the academicians, research scholars, and professionals working on different energy technologies, such as solar energy, bioenergy, wind energy, hydro energy, CO2 capture, energy storage, fuels & combustion, energy-efficient buildings, energy sustainability and lifecycle analysis, energy simulation, and modeling, etc.

Based on the expertise, the speakers from different national and international universities such as Curtin University Malaysia, Curtin University Australia, University of Technology Sydney, The University of Tokyo, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, Asian Institute of Technology Thailand, Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, University of Malaya, Indian Institute of Technology Indore, Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur and CADFEM SEA Pte. Ltd., Singapore will deliver technical sessions in SSTP-RTECT 2020 from their research and job experiences.

I wish you enjoy and explore your valuable engagement with the expert ideas in sustaining your own professional development in the field of different energy conversion technologies as mentioned above.

Thank you.
