The Renewable Energy Sources – Research and Business (RESRB) 2018 conference is designed as a platform for reporting, discussing, improving and disseminating recent developments in renewable energy science, technology, business and policy. Participants from various organisations such as universities, institutes, NGOs, associations, industries etc. are invited. It is an international event with ambitions to share leading research expertise and facilitate business development and thus to be one of the most influential renewable energy knowledge transfer channels. The conference is a must for research groups at the cutting edge of renewable energy science, technology, policy and business development. The conference will facilitate synergies between academia and commercial sectors. Delegates from enterprises seeking innovations and expanding to new markets may benefit from sponsoring, exhibiting and networking thus improving their business environment. RESRB 2018 is particularly focused on developed and developing countries applying green growth policies and plays the role in informing policymaking processes. The participation mode can be either in-person or virtual. Digital conference Proceedings will be made available to all participants including abstracts and contact details of all accepted contributions. Submitted full manuscripts will be internally reviewed by RESRB international referees and review outcomes communicated to authors for facilitated publication in leading international journals and edited books.
