On behalf of the World Society of Sustainable Energy Technologies (WSSET), I am looking forward to welcoming you to Wuhan for the SET 2018 Conference. Previous SET conferences were held in Portugal (Porto 2002), China (Chongqing, 2003), United Kingdom (Nottingham, 2004), China (Jinan, 2005), Italy (Vicenza, 2006), Chile (Santiago, 2007), South Korea (Seoul, 2008), Germany (Aachen, 2009), China (Shanghai, 2010), Turkey (Istanbul, 2011), Canada (Vancouver, 2012) , China (Hong Kong, 2013) , Switzerland (Geneva, 2014), United Kingdom (Nottingham, 2015), Singapore (2016), and Italy (Bologna, 2017)
The conference is organized by Hubei University of Technology, China, and the World Society of Sustainable Energy Technologies (WSSET).
SET is a multi–disciplinary international conference on the sustainable energy sources and technologies, and will provide a forum for the exchange of latest technical information, the dissemination of the high-quality research results on the issues, the presentation of the new developments in the area of sustainable energy, and the debate and shaping of future directions and priorities for better environment, sustainable development and energy security.
This year’s conference includes a wide range of topics on sustainable technologies including energy, buildings, transport and industry. We shall have lectures given by eminent keynote speakers and technical sessions focusing on important research topics related to sustainable technologies and eco-buildings
As you no doubt realize, climate-change threatens the water and food security of billions of people around the world. Wider application of sustainable technologies/eco-buildings is vital to achieving a sustainable economy, improved quality of life and protection of the environment.
I hope that you find the event informative and enjoyable.
