Renewable Energy is inevitable choice of history, as the world now is facing critical issues caused by the use of fossil fuels. The seriousness of the challenge calls upon the international society to work constructively together for the common good. With more than 60% of world’s population and over 40% of world’s energy consumption, the Asia-Pacific region has the largest and fastest-growing markets for clean and renewable energy.
In this regard, Asia-Pacific Forum on Renewable Energy (AFORE) provides a convenient platform for the discussion of renewable energy problems and for finding new ways to solve them. This year we will have AFORE 2016 in Guangzhou. It is the first time that this forum is held in China. We are preparing to make this event as fruitful as it has always been, to provide an excellent platform for people working in renewable energy to exchange their ideas, showcase research results, establish network and develop a new vision for the cooperative future of the renewable energy in Pacific-Asia area. The program consists of plenary talks, keynote speeches, oral sessions, posters, special sessions, and renewable energy site tour.
Guangzhou lies in southern China. It is the capital city and the political, economic and scientific center of Guangdong Province. With a long history of over 2200 years, Guangzhou is South China’s comprehensive industrial manufacturing center and is also dubbed “the millennia-old capital of commerce”. The city is also known as “the best place in China for food”, “home of fruit” and “shopping paradise”. AFORE 2016 will provides a splendid opportunity for you to pay a visit to the city of Guangzhou.
On behalf of the organizing committee, I cordially invite you to AFORE 2016 to be held during November, 2016.
Your participation will make AFORE 2016 more special and I expect to see you all in beautiful Guangzhou.
MA Longlong, Ph.D. Organizing Committee Chair of AFORE 2016
