ICEP Conference Series

About the Conference

The International Conference on Energy and Power (ICEP) aims to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, researchers and educators from around the world who are involved in energy and power research, development and innovation. The conference enables the participants to present and discuss the latest trends and findings and to learn the state-of-the-art technologies in relevant topics and applications.

This conference will cover the broad field of energy and power technologies in all engineering and scientific disciplines. It will be an ideal place to know the recent development in power and energy technologies, which will be presented by leading academic, researchers and industry experts in the field. The conference themes include all aspects of fundamental and applied research in energy and power, but not limited to:

  • Renewable Energy: Bio-energy, geothermal energy, photo-voltaic, renewable fuels, solar-thermal, wind energy, wave energy, hydro-electric power, biomass systems, bio-fuels, ocean and tidal energy, hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

  • Conventional and Nuclear Energy: Coal, liquid fuel, combustion, enhanced oil recovery, natural gas-LNG & CNG, nuclear power, power generation, waste heat recovery applications, energy and exergy efficiency, gasification, pyrolysis

  • Energy Storage and Grid Modernization: Storage and conversion, batteries and fuel cells, smart grid technologies and devices, block chain technologies, power transmission & distribution, smart grid and metering, fault monitoring and predictive maintenance, superconductors, electricity networks of the future, power systems and automation, distributed generation, heat pump.

  • Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Technologies: Green buildings, green computing, thermo-electrics, green transport, energy efficiency and conservation, CO2 capture, low carbon technology, energy harvesting and scavenging, mitigation technologies, sustainable and resilient cities, building energy technologies and systems, HVAC systems, phase change materials.

  • Energy Management, Policy and Economics : Clean energy, energy auditing, cross-border power trading, energy and environment security, energy sciences, intelligent energy systems, energy demand and use optimisation, energy and environment policies, carbon tax, sustainable energy awareness, international cooperation.

History of the conference

This ICEP conference series was originally the brainchild of Prof Firoz Alam and Dr Harun Chowdhury. Both of them have been involved in organizing several international conferences including the 19th Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference (AFMC) in 2014 hosted by RMIT University. After the huge success of 19AFMC Conference with over 400 participants, they worked together to introduce this ICEP conference series since 2016.

The 1st ICEP2016 was organised by RMIT University in Melbourne (Australia) and the 2nd ICEP2018 was organised by Central Queensland University in Sydney (Australia). Over 150 participants from across the globe attended every conference. The 3rd International Conference on Energy and Power (ICEP2021) will be organised by Chiang Mai University, Thailand and Zhejiang University, China in association with Australasian Society of Energy and Power (ASEP) from 18-20 November 2021.

Recently in 2020, Prof Firoz Alam and Dr Harun Chowdhury have co-founded the Australian Society of Energy & Power (ASEP), a non-for-profit organization in Australia. The society will assist the hosting university/organization to organizing the conference series. Any interested university can host this conference by following the guidelines provided by the society. Any university willing to host the next conference initially needs to express their interest to the society. The next hosting university is normally decided or declared during on the last conference event by a opinion poll among the conference participants.
