7th International Symposium on Energy // Waterloo Session: "Nexus of food, energy, and water systems"

This Nexus session, chaired by Amir Sharif of Brunel University London, is part of the 7th International Symposium on Energy, and multi-discipline event on both fossil fuels and many different forms of renewable energy.

Where and when

Manchester
UK

13-17 August 2017

Goals of the Session

  • Integrated projects across natural & built environments to provide for growing demand for food, water & energy while maintaining ecosystem
  • Advanced understanding of complex interactions between food & energy production & water systems
  • Innovative concepts & technologies that effectively address challenges of resource demands and constraints in food, energy & water systems
  • Building workforce that can realize these goals
  • Synergy among all 3 components required within context of sustainability

About the 7th International Symposium on Energy

The Seventh International Symposium on Energy combines previous two symposia: ISECM - working on small scales (ECM4, ECM5); ISECM – towards a big picture (ECM3, ECM6) into one. The conference involves multiple disciplines in technology, science, economy and policy-making related to energy challenges. The topics include both fossil fuels and many different forms of renewable energy. Also, it addresses issues related to the environment, energy efficiency, safety, energy policy and economy, etc.. The purpose is to gain a complete view of energy challenges and solutions among these different disciplines and from a global perspective.
