Dear Esteemed Colleagues & Friends,
I feel privileged and honoured to extend a hearty invitation to you all to attend the International Conference on “Energy & Environment : Challenges and Opportunities” scheduled to be held during February 20-22, 2019 at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi.
Affordable, clean, and reliable energy is the basic precursor for world’s prosperity and economic growth. At the same time, the use of energy has to be optimal to make energy supply sustainable. Though coal is worldwide the predominant source of energy, hydroelectric, nuclear, solar wind and other renewable sources are being considered as low carbon alternatives. While tapping different sources of energy it is also necessary to adopt sustainable coal mining technologies and develop appropriate strategies to mitigate the industrial pollution and global warming.
In this backdrop, the International Conference and Exhibition on “Energy and Environment : Challenges and Opportunities” (ENCO-2019) is being organized by CSIR-Central Institute of Mining and Fuel Research (CSIR-CIMFR), Dhanbad at New Delhi, India. I am sure this event would provide a platform to the international community to disseminate and deliberate on various issues related to the subject and discuss several research and development opportunities and pathways that could lead to a prosperous, sustainable and secure energy future for the world.
The Organising Committee is making all sincere efforts to ensure that you will posses rich experience, both in terms of the conference as well as concurrent events that have been planned during your stay in New Delhi, India.
On behalf of the Organising Committee, I once again invite you all and look forward to your active participation and contributions to enrich the scientific and technical contents of this conference.
See you at ENCO 2019, New Delhi, India!
