Daily life of people and their commercial and coastal security activities in remote coastal locations demands energy for their operations and presently rely predominantly on diesel powered electricity that is imported, which consumes a fair share of their financial capacity. Also fossil based energy sources impairs ecology and leaves a huge impact on the carbon footprint of the region. This challenge is particularly severe in South East Asian Countries that has enough remote coastal locations and its islands which exceeds more than 25,000. This can be mitigated through identification of appropriate clean renewable energy resources and harvesting through sizing and deployment of onshore and offshore renewable systems towards remote coastal locations’ conditions and limitations. However there are several barriers to adoption such as lack of clarity in energy resource availability and right sizing of the renewable system.
Accordingly, this special track is designed to invite speakers from various dimensions of the renewable energy value chain to highlight their views and solutions towards promoting renewables for remote coastal locations and achieve energy self-sufficiency, sustainability and resilience. This special track’s topics include energy resource mapping including wind, wave and tidal, renewable device design for tropical water conditions, onshore and floating renewable solutions, renewables deployment and maintenance strategies, complimentary technologies such as power electronics, health monitoring, etc. and renewable powered smart nano-grid architecture to suit remote coastal location.
Call for Papers is open for discussion topics in the following:
Resource Mapping for renewables
Energy resource characterization
Device design and development
New materials development and material processing advancements
Environmental Impact Assessment studies
Future markets and financing
Grid connection and system aspects
Policy development and legislation
