THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY TECHNOLOGY
The Department of Energy Technology focuses on a sustainable future, thus research is carried out in renewable energy, efficient energy consumption and distribution, conversion technologies and control of energy. Hence, the department addresses the energy technological challenges, which are met on the path to a society free from fossils, based on a robust energy system with a high degree of supply security. This is connected to a number of challenges within e.g. optimal consumption of biomass and waste, integration of wind-, photo-voltaic- and wave energy in the energy system and configuration of a future intelligent grid including, electricity, heat and gas. Furthermore, research is carried out with regards to challenges with transportation by electric cars, efficient and reliable conversion technologies, storage and future houses, which produce net energy.
AIMS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY TECHNOLOGY
The department has four overall aims:
- To conduct definitive international leading edge research with strong industry interaction
- To educate highly qualified candidates at all levels from B.Sc. to M.Sc. and PhD
- To interact with peers in the industry and academia
- To create a good and innovative work environment in the department
EPE Association is an international non-profit scientific association under Belgian law, located in Brussels, Belgium, promoting and coordinating the exchange and the publication of technical, scientific and economic information in the field of Power Electronics and Electrical Drives. EPE Association’s interests include: Devices, Packaging & System Integration, Power Converters Topologies & Design, Measurement & Control, Electrical Machines & Drive Systems, Renewable Energy Power Systems, Grids & Smart Grids, Power Supplies, e-Mobility, Industry Specific Energy Conversion & Conditioning Technologies and Education in Electrical Engineering
EPE Association publishes, in collaboration with Taylor & Francis Group, the quarterly EPE Journal. The aim of the EPE Journal is to supply all experts in the field of power electronics and drives, especially the EPE members, with the most recent information on the rapid evolution in the field of Power Electronics, Drives and Industrial Applications. The journal wants to attract contributions from scientists but also and probably mainly from the ones who are designing and producing power electronics systems and those involved with the applications of systems in industrial processes.
Further, EPE Association organizes, in collaboration with a local partner, the EPE ECCE Europe Conferences. These are organized since 1985. The first 13 editions were organized biennal. Since 2011, the EPE Conferences became the EPE ECCE Europe Conferences, are annual and are co-sponsored by EPE Association and IEEE PELS, in the frame of the joint sponsor’s agreement for the ECCE (Energy Conversion Congress and Exhibition) series. The next EPE ECCE Europe Conference will take place in Genova, Italy, from 2 to 6 September 2019. About 900 participants are expected.
