About the Regsa+

The objectives of the International Conference REGSA 2014: Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Development are:

  • Enable universities around the world the opportunity to present their work (curriculum innovation, research, activities, practical projects) related to Sustainable Development, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy;
  • Promote the exchange of information, ideas and experiences in the implementation of projects, from successful initiatives and good practices in the use and generation of renewable energy, especially in rural areas;
  • Discuss methodological approaches and projects which aim to integrate the theme of sustainable and renewable energy projects and to support the implementation of action plans for renewable energy in communities and rural areas.

* The acceptance of articles will be subject to review ("peer-review"). Authors should make sure that the manuscripts follow the high international quality standard.

About the sustainable development+

Sustainable development is the process of transformation in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments and the orientation of technological development should be achieved through eco-friendly, economically viable, socially fair  and culturally diverse activities.

Access to electricity has a fundamental role in the socioeconomic development and, specially, poverty reduction. The production and local use of renewable energy offer significant potential for local economic development, as well as several environmental benefits.
