On behalf of the organizers and sponsors we are pleased to welcome you to the APEC Conference on Low Carbon Town and Physical Energy Storage. Why should you participate in the conference? To hear the latest results on research, to meet and network with colleagues, or just to have a good time and visit new places. The programme includes outstanding speakers from all over the world who have been invited to deliver keynote lectures. In addition, we have invited well renowned experts from the APEC ecnomic regions who will share their experiences.
As a group, we have an important role to play in society. All over the world society’s foremost challenges this century are global warming, sustainability and security of energy supply. These issues are altogether linked with global stability, economic prosperity, and quality of life. We focus on complementary research fields to find an intergrated way to solve the issue of higher energy consumption in the world’s urbanization process. Physical energy storage is an efficient way to utilize energy while resolving the mismatch between on-peak and off-peak loads. All participants are colleagues who come from various cities and countries. There will be no strangers, just a number of friends you have not yet met.
We thank all the contributors, participants, the International Scientific Committee, the chairpersons, members of the Organizing Committee, students, institutional sponsors, and, last but not least, our financial sponsors, without whom we could not have made this conference possible.
We welcome you to the APEC conference in beautiful Changsha City,China.
