Short description

The 15th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES), which is going to be held in the city of Cologne, Germany from September 1-5, 2020, is dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge on methods, policies and technologies for increasing the sustainability of development by de-coupling growth from the use of natural resources and by a transition to a knowledge-based economy. All taking into account the economic, environmental and social pillars of sustainable development.

One of the main issues of the coming decades is to improve efficiencies by integrating various life-supporting systems, using excess from one, as resource in another in the correct moment. Integrating electricity, heating, cooling, transport, water, buildings, waste, wastewater, industry, forestry and agriculture systems will be pivotal towards sustainable development.

Types of papers sought

The papers should report original, previously unpublished findings in the fields of sustainable development of energy, transport, water, food and environment systems, their integration, their technical, environmental, economic and social perspectives. The review papers are also welcome, if they give thorough review in a particular narrow field with deep gap analysis. All papers will be reviewed under the direction of the International Scientific Committee by the Scientific Advisory Board. The papers with archival value (archival papers), meaning those that contribute significantly to the state of the art and report final results of research, with proper literature review, will be thoroughly reviewed and will be candidates for publication consideration in special issues of several archival journals.
