About the Conference

About The Conference

This conference will provide a platform for national and international experts to discuss pathways to achieve net -zero carbon energy systems. Given the wide range of advancements that need to be in place for net zero energy systems, papers will be invited on eight tracks that are listed below. The topics have been selected to such that all aspects of energy systems-energy generation, energy storage, grid integration, policies, and regulations required to provide an enabling environment for greening the energy systems. A panel session day 2 of the conference will also be organized to get views of experts from academia, industry, industry, and government on the developments required to achieve net zero energy goals. Selected papers from the conference will be published by Springer Nature as proceedings in the book series "Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering". This book series is indexed by Scopus and EI Compendex database.


Theme of Conference

The theme of conference aligns with the Honorable Prime Minister’s commitment at COP26 for creating net zero carbon energy systems in India by 2070. The conference, therefore, shows IIT Roorkee’s commitment to helping India achieve this goal. At the the same time, this conference will provide visibility to our institute as a leader in research and development of hydro and renewable energy.


Venue of Conference

Conference will be organized in the hybrid mode. The on-site programs will be held in the Department of Hydro and Renewable Energy located in the lush green campus of Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee at Roorkee Campus, Uttarakhand, India.
