The Clearwater Clean Energy Conference
This is the Official Program for the 43rd International Technical Conference on Clean Energy that ran from June 3 to 8, 2018, at the Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater, Florida, USA. 2018 Official Program
Plans are now underway for the 44th Conference that will take place June 8 to 14, 2019, at the Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater, Florida, USA.
MISSION STATEMENT – Increased demand – coupled with energy security issues, uncertainty in the oil sector, and environmental regulations – make this conference a must for those involved in all aspects of power generation who must meet the competitive pressures and environmental concerns in the 21st century.
Through the Technical Sessions, Short Courses, and Panels, cutting-edge developments dealing with technical solutions to problems; specific strategies; projects; innovations; industry trends; and or/regulatory compliance will be offered. The program presents an extensive overview of emerging, evolving, and innovative technologies, fuels and/or equipment in the power generation industry. We seek papers from all countries worldwide at the annual technical conference which takes place each June in Clearwater, Florida, USA.
International Programs – Technical Developments – Policy Issues
Papers from the international community are strongly encouraged. In the 2016 conference 16 countries were represented at the conference. In addition, one-third of all attendees were from the international community. The international papers were related to energy/environmental developments throughout the world.
The Committee also encourages papers that deal specifically with the topics covered in the Keynote Session, Panels, Short Courses and Plenary Sessions.
At the direction of the Conference Committee, it was decided to broaden the scope of the conference to include some new and exciting technologies currently on the horizon. The name of the conference was changed to reflect this new and exciting direction. We will continue to be in Clearwater and we will continue to be the Clearwater Conference.
Industry professionals representing nearly all the major players in the electric utility industry were in Clearwater, Florida, USA for the 41st Conference (informally known as “the Clearwater Clean Energy Conference”).
This conference has earned a reputation for excellence as one of the premiere conferences on coal technologies as it grows in size and scope since its inception in 1975.
