The Joint Graduate School of Energy and Environment, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (JGSEE-KMUTT) in collaboration with its consortium partners, including Chiang Mai University as local organiser, and Kyoto University, is pleased to announce the organisation of 8th edition of the International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environment (SEE 2020) on the theme “Meeting the 1.5° Climate Ambition: From Local to Global Innovation” during 28-31 October 2020 in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The year 2020 will see the deadlines for various action items to take effect as established by the Paris Agreement, with the central aim of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change. More than 70 countries have committed to net zero carbon emissions by 2050; and more than 100 cities have done the same. In the face of a “climate emergency”, as declared by the European Parliament, it is now more critical than ever that all these actions be aligned and targeted towards limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Since 2004, SEE, which is a series of biennial conferences, has been serving as a forum for presenting recent progress and advances in science, technology and innovation that addresses energy, environment and climate change issues, and exchange of ideas and networking. SEE2020 is thus focused on sustainable innovation for accelerating solutions for climate actions in meeting the 1.5°C climate ambition and underpinning sustainable growth and development in the region and globally. The importance of innovation in supporting local actions will also be highlighted.

SEE 2020 will therefore serve as a forum for the exchange of information, knowledge and experiences, and networking opportunities in the field of renewable energy and smart energy systems, energy efficiency, low carbon technologies, smart city and transport, environmental and climate science, climate technology and innovation, circular economy, and energy and environmental policy. Potential contributors from academia, research organizations, government agencies and international institutions, and private sector practitioners are invited to submit papers in the areas of science, technology and policy, for oral and poster presentations at the conference.
