Welcome EnergEn 2018

The 2018 Conference “New Cryogenic and Isotope Technologies for Energy and Environment” (EnergEn 2018), organised by the National Research and Development Institute for Cryogenics and Isotopic Technologies – ICSI Rm. Vâlcea, will be held at Băile Govora, Romania, between 24-26 of October, 2018.

The aim of the Conference is to provide a forum for Romanian and foreign researchers, scientists and engineers to present and discuss the current status of modern technologies, experimental techniques and actual developments.

We expect theoretical, methodological and conceptual reports discussing advancements, technical challenges, and novel applications in material science, processes, instrumental developments and isotope applications for energy and environmental & health.

In the heart of Romania, surrounded by the charismatic beauty of the sub-Carpathians, the EnergEn 2018 will provide the best environment for scientific discussions and new partnerships at Palace Hotel, Băile Govora, a place that can easily stimulate your inspiration and creation.

Come and enjoy Science at EnergEn 2018!

Topics

     


      Energy Storage And Hydrogen Technologies

    The growing concerns regarding the drastic reduction of available fossil fuel resources and the impact of greenhouse gases has led to extensive research related to the energy system, a system where the hydrogen technologies and the storage play a significant role. The discussions will involve the latest achievements related to:

    • hydrogen production, purification, storage and distribution
    • renewable energy
    • fuel cell technologies (development of components, single cell or stacks, simulations, testing and applications)
    • electrolysis
    • lithium batteries and all energy storage forms,
    • marketing and policy pathways in energy storage and hydrogen technologies,
    • cross-cutting issues (safety, legislation, education and training).

Venue

We invite you to join us at the 22nd EnergEn 2018 Conference that will be organized on 24 – 26 October 2018 to Băile Govora, Romania. Băile Govora is a spa resort in the South-Central area of Romania (Vâlcea County), situated 20 km South-West of the Râmnicu Vâlcea city. It is located at west of the Olt River, in the Sub-Carpathian zone, at an altitude of 360–380 meters, in a region of hills covered by forests of beech, oak, spruce, pine and acacia. The resort is known for its springs rich in chloride, sodium, iodine, bromine, sulfur (for external treatments) and in magnesium, calcium, a small quantity of sulfur (for internal treatments) used since 1866 for different diseases. The meeting will be held at the Palace Hotel, a jewel of the early 20 th century architecture, located within the Central Park of Băile Govora spa.
