Uganda and the rest of Africa share great challenges concerning reliable and affordable supply of sustainable (green) energy. Addressing such challenges could be most effectively done if the academia, industry, government, and non-governmental organization joined forces.
This background motivated the establishment of the National Renewable Energy Platform (NREP) under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD) to spearhead the establishment of the interlink amongst the stakeholders.
Through the NREP, the MEMD is organising the Renewable Energy Conference 2022 (REC22) to bring together the forementioned stakeholders to share the diverse approaches of curbing the energy sector challenges and fostering renewable energy adoption in Uganda. The REC22 will mainly focus on scientific, technical, and organizational innovations as well as policy recommendations on sustainable energy generation, transmission, and distribution.
Oral and poster presentations on technological, economic, and social aspects of innovative solutions for African communities, particularly Uganda in the field of Renewable Energy. Papers discussing results or strategies for local and international cooperation in the field of Renewable Energy are highly welcome.
Topics to consider for the REC22 include, but not limited to:
