  • Conference Call
  • The 2nd Pacific Rim Energy & Sus­tain­abil­ity Con­fer­ence (PRESCO) 2013 will be held by the PRESDA Foun­da­tion in Hiroshima, Japan from August 27 – 29, 2013. The con­fer­ence coin­cides with the 68th Hiroshima Peace Memo­r­ial and Remem­brance Month. Spe­cial events and tours will be offered to participants.

    About PRESCO 2013

    Despite efforts since the late 1980’s by the global com­mu­nity, espe­cially the United Nations, to take a proac­tive stance on the sus­tain­abil­ity of energy resources, the stark real­ity is that global con­sump­tion of energy has not dimin­ished. In fact, CO2 emis­sions from fos­sil fuels have increased nearly 30% since 2000, and roughly 85% of global energy now comes from fos­sil fuels. More­over, recent spikes in world oil prices, as well as energy related crises such as the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mex­ico, and the nuclear melt­down at the Fukushima Dai-​Ichi plant in Japan have focused atten­tion on chal­lenges with the exist­ing energy landscape.

    The 2013 Pacific Rim Energy & Sus­tain­abil­ity Con­fer­ence will be held in Hiroshima, Japan: the City of Peace. The three-​day con­fer­ence will pro­vide an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary plat­form for aca­d­e­mics, researchers, pol­i­cy­mak­ers, entre­pre­neurs, stu­dents, and pro­fes­sion­als. Under the theme of Inte­grat­ing the dis­ci­plines, the objec­tives of PRESCO 2013 are to exchange ideas, present research, debate issues fac­ing sus­tain­able energy as it inter­sects with the social, envi­ron­men­tal, and eco­nomic aspects of the global sus­tain­abil­ity paradigm.

    We invite pro­pos­als to be sub­mit­ted through our online sys­tem. Pro­pos­als should focus on the fol­low­ing areas:

    Con­fer­ence Topics

    • Sus­tain­able Energy
    • Sus­tain­able Consumption
    • Resiliency
    • Pol­icy Needs
    • Other (please specify)

    Spe­cial Topics

    The future of elec­tric­ity gen­er­a­tion in a post-​Fukushima world: Are we on track to return to coal and oil with par­al­lel CO2 emis­sions? What might the eco­nom­ics of power gen­er­a­tion look like in the 5 – 10 year time frame? 50 years? Renew­able energy? Safety? Con­ser­va­tion? Soci­etal implications?

    Con­fer­ence Proceedings

    Oral pre­sen­ters are not required to sub­mit a full paper to be included in the con­fer­ence pro­ceed­ings. All sub­mis­sions to the con­fer­ence will undergo a blind review process. The pro­ceed­ings will be pub­lished in elec­tronic for­mat only.
