International Conference on Renewable Energy and Appropriate Technologies

5-6 December 2019

Davao City, Philippines

The Conference aims to gather together in one venue the key stakeholders of the energy industry and appropriate technologies in Mindanao in order to tackle the state of R&D in this field and use the available researches to feed the discussions on the issues and sustainable solutions suitable for the context of Mindanao. The conference aims to become a premier platform to exchange research ideas, experiences, technical, social, economic, and policy innovations on renewable energy and appropriate technology deployment in Mindanao and the greater Southeast Asia. The conference will convene multiple discipline energy professionals, policy makers, members of the academe, researchers and other key players in the renewable energy and appropriate technology sector.

The Conference Committee is inviting submission of abstracts of technical papers, academic articles, local and international initiatives on renewable energy and appropriate technologies, among others.

Call for Papers

Renewable Energy & Appropriate Technologies Journal

This peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal aims to disseminate the state of research and development of sustainable energy systems and appropriate technologies that are contour-fitted to the context of Mindanao. The papers that are included in the journal are envisioned to feed and stir the technology, entrepreneurial and policy design processes in the energy industry and other technology-based sectors in Mindanao and in the greater Southeast Asia.

The Journal documents the research, development, deployment and commercialization of clean energy systems and power generation technologies that utilize energy resources that are replenishable on a human timescale and has a technology bias for small-scale, decentralised, autonomous, locally fitted, people-centered and environmentally benign technologies that promote and assist sustainable functioning of communities.

The board of editors of the journal are composed of researchers from the Mindanao Renewable Energy R&D Center (MREC) partner institutions, the Center for Renewable Energy and Appropriate Technologies (CREATE) of the Ateneo de Davao University, and foreign academic/research institutions. The board of reviewers is composed of scholars in the field of energy and appropriate technologies from reputable academic and research institutions in the country and abroad.

The Journal invites papers for consideration as main article, editorial, or review article and follows the IEEE format of writing (see downloadables below). All submissions are to be subjected to double blind review by at least two experts in the field. The review process will normally take four to six weeks after which the authors will be informed about the Journal Editors’ decision.

Sample of research topics that can be included in the Journal are the following: renewable energy harvesting, missionary electrification, grid integration of variable renewables, DSM and energy efficiency, low carbon urban and rural development, energy products and service valorization, systems modeling and other appropriate technologies in the area of water, energy, food, transport, and telecom.

Submissions should be sent through the contact information provided below. March and September of each year are the target publication dates.
