|Conference Early Registrations Open|
The 18th National Annual Engineering Conference, ‘Fuelling the Future’, organised by the Chamber of Engineers will be held on the 16th April at the Hilton Hotel Malta. The impact energy has on the environment and the cost of conventional energy and renewables are the key problems that inspired this year’s choice of the title Fuelling the Future.
The programme includes research papers on a vast number of sectors both by local and foreign researchers. These will be presenting various positions on aspects of policy, technology and solutions that apply to the local scenario. Early registrations for ‘Fuelling the Future’, submitted by Friday 10th April, will automatically enjoy a 20% discount on registration fees.
The first part of the conference will deal mostly with issues of policy including the national strategy on climate change, energy, electricity generation plans and the inter-relationship of Energy, Economy and the Environment.
During the second part of the conference, a number of presentations on renewable and alternative technologies will be discussed. These will include papers on deep heat mining and Malta’s potential to harvest geothermal energy, wind farm development, photo-voltaics and energy from waste.
Conference participants will also have the opportunity to participate in two workshops and a number of technical presentations by various stakeholders in Industry adding value and recognition to the event and the Chamber.
The titles of the workshops are a) The Climate Change Strategy: Adopting and Adapting and b) Renewable and alternative technologies. On registration, one is to clearly indicate the workshop he/she wishes to participate in.
Early registrations for ‘Fuelling the Future’, submitted by Friday 10th April, will automatically enjoy a 20% discount on registration fees.
