Securing a Sustainable Net-Zero Future Now

Invitation to SEE 2024

The Joint Graduate School of Energy and Environment (JGSEE) at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), in collaboration with its consortium partners and Kyoto University, is pleased to announce the organization of the 9th edition of the International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environment, “SEE 2024,” themed “Securing a Sustainable Net-Zero Future Now.” The conference will take place from 18 to 20 December 2024 at the Millennium Hilton hotel in Bangkok, Thailand.

The urgency for climate action has never been more pronounced. Meeting the goal of limiting global warming to below 1.5°C, as outlined in the Paris Agreement, requires halving carbon emissions from the energy sector by 2030 and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. All sectors of society must actively participate and contribute to this vital effort. Individuals and organizations within the research and education community play a particularly pivotal role, as their expertise, innovation, and workforce and skills development activities are indispensable components of effective climate action.

For the past two decades, the SEE series of biennial conferences has provided a platform for sharing recent progress and advances in science, technology, and innovation addressing energy, environmental, and climate change challenges, fostering idea exchange and networking. SEE 2024 remains committed to this tradition. In this milestone 20th anniversary edition, the theme “Securing a Sustainable Net-Zero Future Now” highlights the imperative for immediate actions toward energy and sustainability transitions, both regionally and globally.

The conference will delve into various topics, including advanced energy and power systems, bioenergy and biorefinery, circular economy and sustainability, decarbonization of end-use sectors, climate science, technologies, and innovation, and green governance and policy. We welcome contributions from academia, research organizations, government agencies, international institutions, and the private sector in the realms of science, technology, and policy. Submissions for in-person presentations are encouraged.
