The Conference for Sustainable Energy, CSE, was launched as an international event for promoting renewable energy systems as part of the current and future energy scenarios that are developed to feasibly implement sustainable development.

Starting with 2005, each edition had a core subject, defined according to the most significant research topics at global level:

   -  CSE 2020 – Solar Energy Conversion in Communities
   -  CSE 2017 – Nearly Zero Energy Communities
   -  CSE 2014 – Nearly Zero Energy Buildings
   -  CSE 2011 – Sustainable Communities
   -  CSE 2008 – Solar Energy Conversion
   -  CSE 2005 – Sustainable Energy

The 6th edition, CSE 2020 is opened to new results, innovative concepts and solutions expected for the transition towards sustainable communities that give use primarily to the solar energy, alone or associated with other renewable energies.

Faculty of Product Design and Environment

R&D Centre Renewable Energy Systems and Recycling, RESREC ( EN, RO )

The RESREC center was founded in 2002 and currently gathers permanent 23 members, along with Ph.D. and M.Sc. students enrolled in the Faculty of Product Design and Environment.

The research is focused on complex, integrated solutions for the built environment in sustainable communities, based on renewable energy systems for energy efficient buildings, covering the concept “material-product-technology”. Renewable energy conversion systems are developed, adapted to the implementation location, for covering the thermal and the electrical energy demand in a building, along with novel solutions, based on solar radiation, for advanced wastewater treatment targeting water re-use and for using wastes as second raw materials for novel products development.


European Sustainable Energy Alliance, ESEIA

ESEIA is a non-profit body of cross-sector organizations in the field of sustainable energy systems, from energy provision to energy consumption. Its activity spans over research, teaching and innovation and its members are dedicated to advancing the implementation of renewables and sustainable technologies in Europe.



Technical Sciences Academy of Romania

ASTR is a public body that gathers Romanian representative personalities, active in the engineering field for promoting interdisciplinary technical results, the innovation and for identifying new evolution lines in the technical sciences.



Renewable Energy Commission – Romanian Academy

The Romanian Academy of Science is the highest scientific and cultural structure in the country that gathers recognized Romanian and foreign personalities, acting for promoting research and science as active parts in the society. The section of Technical Sciences of the Academy has launched the Commission for Renewable Energy as a representative forum for promoting new trends in using clean energy resources as an efficient path towards sustainability.



Technical Committee: Sustainable Energy Systems International Federation for the Science of Machines and Mechanisms, IFToMM

The TC SES promotes research and development in the field of machines and mechanisms considering the Sustainable Energy action lines and supports working groups in this field for developing research, education and industry joint programs.
