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 the sustainable development.

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

   -  CSE 2023 – Renewable Energy Mixes for Carbon Neutrality in Communities
   -  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 7th edition, CSE 2023 opens the floor 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.

R&D Centre Renewable Energy Systems and Recycling, RESREC

The RESREC center was founded in 2002 and currently gathers 21 permanent members, along with Ph.D. and M.Sc. students enrolled in the Faculty of Product Design and Environment.

The main research focus is 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 and adapted to the implementation location for covering the thermal and the electrical energy demand in buildings, 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.

With the support of:


European Sustainable Energy Alliance, ESEIA

The European Sustainable Energy Innovation Alliance is a European association of cross-sector organizations leading the field of sustainable energy systems, from energy provision to energy consumption in research, teaching and innovation.



Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences, ASTR

The Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences promotes the development of high quality research and technological innovation and supports engineering education.



Romanian Academy Renewable Energy Commission 

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.



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

The Internationl Federation for the Science of Machines and Mechanisms promotes research and development in the field of Machines and Mechanisms by theoretical and experimental methods, along with their practical application.
