The 7th AIGE/IIETA International Conference and 16th AIGE 2022 Conference - "Energy Conversion, Management, Recovery, Saving, Storage and Renewable Systems"


The 7th AIGE/IIETA International Conference and 16th AIGE 2022 Conference - "
Energy Conversion, Management, Recovery, Saving, Storage and Renewable Systems" 

Parma, Italy on June 8-9, 2022


The 7th AIGE/IIETA International Conference and 16th AIGE 2022 Conference on "Energy Conversion, Management, Recovery, Saving, Storage and Renewable Systems" is organized under the joint auspices of the AIGE and IIETA with the aim of providing technical information to their members and to the scientific and industrial community at large.

The joint Conferences shall foster a binding platform for researchers from universities, research institutions and industries as well as students to network, learn more and share their knowledge. They will pursue the goal of providing a forum for the exposure and the exchange of technical/scientific information.

The joint Conferences will give the opportunity to discuss the state of the art and to present experimental, analytical and numerical results in Energy Conversion Systems, in Energy Management, in Energy Recovery Systems, in Energy Saving Techniques, Energy Storage Systems and Renewable Systems, with a particular attention to the engineering, environmental and economic aspects.

Since the city of Parma has recently received the acknowledgement of "Italian Creative UNESCO City of Gastronomy", a special section regarding the food processing engineering has been added to the conference with the aim of presenting the most promising energy solutions in the food processing field, spanning from novel thermal management techniques to environmental-friendly applications.

A plenary round table will be organized in continuation and updating of those of Matera and of the past years. The new “Piano Nazionale di Ripresa e Resilienza” (National Recovery and Resilience Pan) will be also discussed.

The following list of topics is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather to indicate topics that fall within the aim of the conference.
