Global Science Technology & Innovation Conferences

23 October 2017 - 09:00 to 25 October 2017 - 18:00

G-STIC 2017 focuses on integrated technological solutions that potentially have a large impact on the achievement of the SDGs and climate change goals. The activities in G-STIC 2017 are organized and structured in 10 thematic areas, including 6 thematic clusters and 4 cross-cutting themes addressing aspects that are of global importance to the thematic clusters.

One of the conference themes is energy, with a specific focus on energy positive communities.

Energy positive communities operate on a local sustainable energy system that generates and delivers renewable energy to cover the living and comfort needs within local communities. But the positive impact of such energy systems on local communities goes beyond the delivery of energy services. They also help reduce poverty and stimulate local employment within communities through advancements in health, water supply, education, mobility, etc.

Micro- and mini-grids are a promising system solution for energy positive communities. The concept of these local energy networks differs from application to application: remote off-grid or island application, communities linked to the grid (hybrid mode), campus entities and industrial or commercial applications.
