Technoport RERC Research
Technoport RERC Research is the first part of the Technoport 2012 – Sharing Possibilities conference. Technoport RERC Research will be held 16 to 17 April in Trondheim, Norway. There will also be a reception and concert in the evening 15 April. During the conference researchers will explore how smart technology can play a role in the transition to a greener economy.
Technoport Research and The Renewable Energy Research Conference (RERC) are biennial conferences. RERC is organized by the Centre for Renewable Energy. The 1st RERC took place in Trondheim in 2010, and gathered more than 400 participants from 21 different nations. The first Technoport Research and the 2nd RERC will take place during Technoport 2012- Sharing Possibilities in Trondheim. Technoport and Centre for Renewable energy organize Technoport RERC research in collaboration.
During Technoport RERC Research 2012, scientists from all areas of environment-friendly energy research will have an opportunity to give an update and discuss recent technological and scientific achievements in 13 parallell sessions (see below). The parallell sessions will include both oral and poster presentations. There will also be plenary sessions, organized as Technoport Talks during the Technoport Summit.
The Technoport RERC Research parallell sessions will cover the following topics:
- Sustainable built environment
- Solar energy
- Wind energy
- Marine energy
- Biofuels and biorefinery
- Hydrogen – Bipolar plates for PEM fuel cells and electrolyzers
- Energy systems – smart grids
- Innovation in transition to a green economy
- Sustainability assessment of energy technologies
- The role of technology and engineering in sustainable energy transitions: Social science perspectives
- CO2 capture and storage – Transition technologies
- Transition strategies:
This theme aims to shed light on approaches to implement emerging energy systems and technologies into the traditional systems; possibilities, material limitations, global potential and suitability, external conditions etc.
- Combating poverty with environment-friendly energy:
How can the different energy systems and technologies contribute to “energy for all”?
Interactions between traditional and renewable energy sources; technological solutions and systems thinking in global, regional and local perspectives.
Technological, societal, economical and environmental impacts of the transition to a green economy will be summarised from the parallel sessions and debated with politicians and industrialists during the Technoport Summit.
There will also be organized two side events in affiliation with the conference:
- Monday April 16th : DECARBit
- Thursday April 19th: How could a bridge construction increase the potential for utilization of renewable energy?
