Description

This international conference empowers Japan-UK research collaboration and bring discussions of the future research collaboration opportunity due to the mutual interest on scientifically contributing to the novel development of vacuum insulation and renewable energy technologies for NZEBs (Nearly Zero Energy Buildings). This conference will enable us to develop a future joint venture of different approaches by working together and widening engagement in research dissemination activities between Japan and the UK.

Themes

This international conference is a multidisciplinary forum of sharing the expertise and presenting the state-of-the-art research work in the form of presentations for the following themes.

  • Vacuum Physics
  • Building Integrated Renewable Energy
  • Solar Thermal Vacuum Engineering
  • Smart Windows
  • Vacuum Insulation
  • Building Retrofitting Technologies
  • Solar Collectors
  • Solar Heating and Cooling Technologies
  • Solar Architecture and Building Integration
  • Intelligent Energy Systems for NZEBs
