About Us

The world is moving toward a sustainable future and the development of technologies and policies that facilitate this transition is crucial.  Global demand for energy is continuing to increase, while concerns over climate change, water scarcity, and deforestation are mounting.  The only way forward is to prioritize the sustainable production and use of energy.  The ENERGY AND SUSTAINABILITY 2018 symposium at the University of Windsor will bring together energy engineering and sustainability experts from academia, industry, and policy arenas to uncover the challenges and solutions to ensuring secure and sustainable production and use of energy resources.  This symposium will disseminate the most recent advances in these field and promote collaborations to maximize opportunities for innovative solutions.  New developments in renewable energy generation, transmission, storage, and consumption are pertinent to this symposium. Studies on climate change, green buildings, green economy, waste and recycling, and social sustainability will also be the focus of ENERGY AND SUSTAINABILITY 2018.
