OBJECTIVES

The Centre de Développement des Energies Renouvelables (CDER) is organizing the International Renewable Energy Days (IREnDays’2024), with a particular focus on wind energy through the 2nd International Conference on Wind Energy and Its Applications (2nd ICWEA’24). This event will take place on May 28-30, 2024, and will be held in Algiers, Algeria.

IREnDays’2024 will bring together experts from academia, industry, and government to share their knowledge and ideas in the field of renewable energy. This event aims to provide an international forum for researchers, engineers, and professionals to showcase the latest developments and scientific advances in their research.

IREnDays’2024 will include high-level plenary talks, keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations, technical panels with interactive sessions and social events. This will provide attendees with networking opportunities, allowing them to share their experiences and innovations on all aspects of renewable energy.

This event fully aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), comes at a critical time in the global effort to address climate change and accelerate the transition to renewable energy sources. IREnDays’2024 is expected to contribute to the global effort to achieve a more sustainable and equitable future.

Researchers, students, industry professionals, and policymakers are invited to participate in this international event and contribute to promote the development of clean, sustainable energy sources.

Discussion Panels

  1. Renewable Energy Innovation: strategy and standards

A panel discussion on “Renewable Energy Innovation: Strategy and Standards” could provide a platform for stakeholders, professionals in the renewable energy field, researchers, and representatives from various sectors to engage in insightful discussions. This platform allows to exchange ideas, explore innovative strategies, promote technology transfer, and establish quality and safety standards to provide a common framework that enables interoperability and compatibility between different renewable energy technologies. Industry professionals, such as equipment manufacturers, project developers, energy service providers, researchers, and academics, could share their perspectives on the latest technological advancements, challenges faced, and opportunities to seize. By joining forces, the local industry and business sectors can promote the adoption of renewable energies, drive innovation, create local economic opportunities, and contribute to a greener and more prosperous energy future.

  1. Artificial intelligence for Renewable Energy systems

A panel discussion on “Artificial Intelligence for Renewable Energy Systems” could address the latest advances in artificial intelligence (AI) applied to renewable energy systems. Panelists could discuss the advantages of using AI to improve the efficiency and reliability of renewable energy systems, as well as the challenges associated with adopting this technology. They could also explore opportunities for collaboration between AI experts and renewable energy experts to develop new innovative solutions. The panel could examine how AI can be applied to renewable energy systems, such as optimizing energy generation and consumption, predicting maintenance needs, and improving energy storage. Additionally, they could discuss how to address concerns around the ethical and societal implications of using AI in the energy sector. By bringing together experts from different fields, the panel could facilitate a cross-disciplinary dialogue on how to leverage AI for a sustainable energy future.
