The 2015 NTNU Japan Seminar: “Japanese and Norwegian Approaches to Sustainability in Energy”

Date: Thursday, September 24 (registration from 8:30)

Venue: Rådssalen, Hovedbygningen, NTNU, Gløshaugen, Trondheim

The threat of global warming has caused greater awareness of the need for a shift to more environmentally sustainable economic activity.  The impact of such a shift will be particularly large in the energy sector. At this Seminar, which takes place on the day after the Kyoto International Forum on Energy and the Environment (KIFEE8) ends on the same campus, three panels will examine Japanese and Norwegian approaches to the issue: The first will look at the effect of politics, society and economics on renewable energy. The second will highlight experiences with the development of renewable energy resources. The third will focus on how SMART grids can ensure more efficient coordination of the generation and consumption of electricity. Many of the presenters have a long experience of planning and conducting engineering projects in Japan or Norway.

There is no cost to attend, and a free lunch and coffee will be provided.  However, to attend you must register online by Monday, September 21.  You can find the complete seminar program and the online registration link here:
