Conference on Advances in Renewable Energy ( CARE-2023)

Electrochemical Energy Storage, Photovoltaic Technologies, & Hydrogen Energy
Venue: HRI, Prayagraj, India
February 2-4, 2023

According to the International Energy Agency, Paris (an Intergovernmental organization), 80% of today's energy demand is being met by fossil fuels only, which results in the emission of CO2 of the order of 30-35 Gt year-1. The escalating and alarming climate changes demands finding an alternative to the existing energy supply chain, which demands newer approaches in energy conversion and storage.

CARE-2023 aims to bring pioneering researchers from both academia (theory & experiment) and industry to a common platform to discuss such pressing issues on energy crisis, particularly related to hydrogen energy, advances in photovoltaics, and potential strategies in electrochemical energy storage. This three-day event being conducted during February 02-04, 2023 will discuss these topics. Each day will be devoted to one topic, and will aim to foster intense discussions among researchers on novel research strategies and formulating future energy policies. This platform will be of great value to India’s push towards green hydrogen generation, solar energy, and electric vehicle technologies.

The conference also encourages participation of young researchers as they will be provided with a chance to present their promising work in the form of poster presentation which will be assessed by a panel consisting of experts in each field.
