CONFERENCE SCOPE and TOPICS

The International Conference on Energy, Environment and Climate Change (International Conference on Utilities and Exhibition) – ICUE 2020 follows the series of ICUE conferences organized by the Asian Institute of Technology since 2006, and has the theme – Energy, Environment and Climate Change for its 2020 edition.  

The ICUE 2020 will bring researchers, academicians, private sector, business, industry, policy personnel, non governmental organisations, international and regional institutions, consulting agencies and research scholars/students to present their recent research and findings, share their experiences and exchange their experiences, and provide a platform for networking and discuss new opportunities for collaborative research and outreach. 

Past editions of ICUE conferences were well-attended by delegates from at least 35 countries around the globe and with conference proceedings published in IEEE Xplore.
