The organising committee members are faculty within the divisions of Physical Resource Theory and Energy Technology, Department of Space, Earth and Environment. The Physical Resource Theory (PRT) has an overall focus on developing knowledge for transitions to a sustainable future with a high quality of life for the global community. The research focuses on the interactions between technology, society and nature. Systems perspective is used to perform interdisciplinary research including theory development, mathematical modelling, as well as quantitative and qualitative analysis. The Division Energy Technology (ET) conducts research and development on energy technologies and energy systems. Current research projects and activities cover a wide range of issues related to energy transformation and how to limit the environmental impact. The research comprises experimentally based research on combustion and gasification, process analysis as well as energy systems studies with focus on the electricity and heating systems. Both PRT and ET aspire to pursue an active engagement and dialogue with society, through education, stakeholder interaction and support to decision makers.
