Seminar: The fossil and renewable energy mix: towards a sustainable energy future 12-10-2018


Next Friday, October 12, from 4pm to 6pm, at room V1.05, will take place the seminar on The fossil and renewable energy mix: towards a sustainable energy future, given by Professor Edgar Fernandes, Director of the Laboratory of Thermofluids, Combustion and Energy Systems of the IN+.

Energy is a structuring factor in society, as it defines and influences economic, financial, social, environmental, cultural and political aspects, being strategic for all types of societies. In this context, it is necessary to seek and encourage technologies that promote the use of energy from renewable sources with the aim of developing sustainability. This seminar explores the pros and cons of the actual/traditional energy-converting-processes that must be adapted/retroffited to incorporate the “new synthesized renewable fuels”.

This will be the second seminar on the series of Seminars on Sustainable Energy Systems, following the lecture hold by Joana Portugal Pereira on Opportunities and limitations of integrated bioenergy and carbon capture and storage systems to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.
