Below, please find an update in regards to the 2nd Asia-Arab Forum of Sustainable Energy, which includes the 4th International workshop on Sahara Solar Breeder and will take place on May 15 & 16, 2012 in Oran, Algeria.

We hope to welcome all of you in the beautiful city of Oran in May !

Organisers & Partners

  • Electrical & Electronics Engineering Faculty of the University of Sciences & Technology of Oran (USTO-MB) ;
  • Electrical Engineering Laboratory of Oran (LGEO, USTO-MB) ;
  • Laboratory of Electron Microscopy and Materials Sciences (LMESM, USTO-MB) ;
  • University of Saïda ;
  • URER/MS Renewable Energy Centre, Adrar.

Energy security, Economic growth and Environmental protection are the national energy policy drivers of any country of the world. Moreover, energy is central to achieving the interrelated economic, social, and environmental aims of sustainable human development, the renewable energies.

The financial, energy and climate crises are individually serious issues, but in combination their impact could be catastrophic for the global economy.

Even as we move into a global economic downturn there are growing calls from scientist, economist and politicians for an accelerated transformation towards low carbon energy supply and resource productive economies. To move forward will require new and more efficient solutions, technologies and products alongside behavioural change.

Scenarios to create a vision for the future of global energy supply, such as the Sahara Solar Breeder project being not only an energy solution but an integrated community, socio-economic, industrial, agricultural, environmental, and science and technology development solution, will guide decision makers and help understand the limitations of our ‘mental maps’ of the world – to think the unthinkable, anticipate the unknowable and utilise both to make better strategic decisions so that the progress serves better the future of the humanity.

The conference offers great possibilities in regards to sponsorships. The forum offers the opportunity to be directly involved by way of sponsorship to organisations that benefit directly from the business generated by materials, energy and environment. For these groups, the forum offers not only a return represented by their products being exposed, but also a chance to be a cornerstone partner in the forum and communicate about the role that they play in the energy and materials field to a large number of researchers and experts from a variety of countries. If you wish to support the forum and there are other ways in which your organization would like to be involved, we welcome the opportunity to discuss these with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We will adopt a flexible approach to sponsors, and may be able to negotiate to meet your needs.
