Full details and Registration

You are invited to attend the third International Forum on Hydrogen Production Technologies (HyPT-3), to be held virtually from Tues Sept 12 to Fri Sept 15, 2023, organised by the Centre for Energy Technology at the University of Adelaide.

Registration here

We are pleased to announce the follow-up to our very successful Hydrogen Production Technologies (HyPT-2) forums held in 2019 and 2021. HyPT-3 will continue to explore, in depth, a range of current and emerging zero carbon emission (CO2-free) hydrogen production technologies, with world-leaders from industry, research and government agencies, keen to accelerate opportunities for low-cost hydrogen production.

Each topic will be repeated twice (A & B) for different time zones with 90 min sessions with 3 x 20 min Keynote speakers followed by 30 mins discussion with 2 Panellists.

This forum will present an in-depth overview of a range of current and emerging zero carbon emission (CO2-free) hydrogen production technologies and will explore through expert opinion and discussion, the different technologies, with emphasis on:

  • Appraisal of current technologies, projections and limitations.
  • Challenges and limitations of emerging technologies, and barriers leading to cost reduction
  • Consideration of system integration, scale-up and effectiveness, as well as life-cycle analysis.

Register now for the 4th SFERA Doctoral Colloquium and Summer School

11 – 15 September 2023
Focus topic summer school: Smart CSP: how smart tools, devices and software can help improve the design and operation of concentrating solar power technologies.
DLR Cologne / Hybrid event
The doctoral colloquium is open to SFERA-III members, while the summer school is open to a broad audience. We are inviting all CSP enthusiasts and CSP researchers to join the summer school on 14 and 15 September 2023.

2nd Solar Energy Storage Future ASIA 2023

Tickets at Energy Desk
Thermal Energy Storage Asia August 29


30 Oct – 04 Nov 2023 in New Delhi, India

Taking place in New Delhi, India, from 30 October – 04 November 2023, the ISES Solar World Congress will provide a forum for scientists and researchers, engineers, architects, and representatives from industry and business to present and discuss their latest findings, developments and perspectives. SWC was in India in 1978 for the largest conference up to now and we are thrilled to come back to India this year. India has proven remarkable global leadership in solar energy development and pursues ambitious plans to further move towards a renewable future, impressively scaling up solar energy use.

The SWC 23 will offer a dedicated program including plenary sessions, keynote addresses, technical oral and poster sessions, workshops, technical tours, special events for young researchers as well as social events where you will have the opportunity to network, meet old friends and to make new ones. ISES SWC 2023 will give you a chance to present your work, meet researchers, developers and industry and government representatives, and send you home inspired and motivated to continue moving the world towards 100% renewable energy.
