IEEE Green Technologies Conference Seeks Papers on Current and Emerging Renewable Energy Sources and Energy-Reduction Technologies

By Chris McManes

IEEE Green Technologies Conference (GREENTECH 2013) organizers are seeking technical papers on topics related to current and emerging renewable energy sources and energy-reduction technologies.

Accepted papers will be presented during the fifth-annual conference, 4-5 April 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center. They will also be published in a conference proceedings CD, and available through the IEEE Xplore digital library.

Contributed papers, particularly in the following areas, are solicited:

  • Energy Transmission, Distribution & Efficiency — Smart- and micro-grids, usage-based distribution, e.g. offices & homes; novel energy efficient devices, systems & operations; life-cycle efficiency & optimizations, e.g. buildings, transportation, logistics (supply chain), products & services
  • Energy Generation & Storage — Renewable, low to zero emissions, e.g. biomass, wind, solar, fuel cells, ultra clean fuels, alternative fuels (thorium/nuclear); distributed, local/co- and poly-generation storage systems
  • Management & Control — Sensors, monitoring, control, security, fail-safe & ad-hoc networks/communications, frameworks & architectures, context-based management; process & systems simulation
  • Policies: Environmental, Legal, Social, Economic & Political Impacts — Emerging standards for renewable & reduced carbon emission energy sources & safety; technologies for developed & underdeveloped countries


Submit all papers (maximum of 8 pages) in IEEE-approved format through by 15 November. Submissions must describe original work not previously published or currently under review for publication in another conference or journal.


GREENTECH 2013 is designed to address the challenge of securing clean, green energy sources for the 21st century. The development and application of innovative clean and alternate energy sources will require the cooperative effort from many disciplines of engineering, science, architecture and policy. The event will showcase recent advances, emerging approaches, technical solutions and novel services and deployments.

GREENTECH 2013 is sponsored by IEEE Region 5, the Denver Section and IEEE-USA.

IEEE-USA advances the public good and promotes the careers and public policy interests of 210,000 engineering, computing and technology professionals who are U.S. members of IEEE.
