2019 Young Energy Researchers Conference

The Young Energy Researchers Conference deserves special attention because our low-carbon energy transition depends on a strong future generation of experts.

The 2 conferences present the work and achievements of young researchers in the fields of biomass and energy efficiency. They offer an opportunity to interact with researchers and industry experts from all over the world.

Young researchers (born after 1983) are invited to submit contributions. The deadline i10 October 10th, 2018. Information is available here. A brochure is available here.

A high-level scientific committee selects papers for oral or poster presentation.

Submissions are invited from any scientific field (e.g. technology & engineering, economic and social sciences, architecture, law, arts, etc.) and must be in English only.

The 2 best contributions are honoured with the awards “Best Young Energy Efficiency Researcher” and “Best Young Biomass Researcher” and will receive 1,000 Euro each as prize money.


• National Energy Efficiency Conference 2018 in Sydney, Australia

The National Energy Efficiency Conference is Australia’s premier annual event for the energy efficiency, cogeneration and demand management sector. Taking place in Sydney from Monday 19 – Tuesday 20 November 2018, it will bring together over 350 energy users, policy makers and energy efficiency providers with leading domestic and international experts to analyse, debate and explore new opportunities to save energy in Australian homes and businesses.
