Short description

VI Regional Conference on "Industrial Energy and Environmental Protection in South Eastern Europe", organised by the the Serbian Society of Thermal Engineers which will be held from June 21 - 24, 2017 at Zlatibor, Serbia


More than 20 years since the 1st conference of the Society of Thermal Engineers titled "Industrial Energy" and 9 years since I Regional Conference Industrial Energy and Environmental Protection in South-Eastern Europe, and following the success of the first four regional conferences, Serbian Society of Thermal Engineers carries on with a VI regional conference in 2017.

The necessity of frequent and persistent exchange of views on how the industry can improve its energy field and place energy efficiency on a higher level, is especially important now when it is reviewed if the EU energy policies are achieving the 20-20-20 objectives. Serbian Society of Thermal Engineers organizes this conference again two years since the previous one, and although there have been developments in legislation and in the implementation of specific projects within the region, the VI conference is above all an opportunity to analyze the actual achievements in improving energy efficiency, environmental protection and application of renewable energy sources.
