Coming science news radio broadcasts will say how top minds in energy are being asked to come forward in a sweeping call for papers

Dallas (April 10, 2014) – Organizers of the seventh annual green technologies conference (Greentech 2015) produced by Section 5 of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) have announced a call for paper submissions in dynamic energy solutions.

The Conference will focus on green technology, specifically Surviving Change and Building the Future, and will be held April 16-17, 2015, in New Orleans, LA.

Electric vehicles and their role in the green energy future continues to be a nagging question, and will be explored further when committee member Steve Bourg and conference technical chairman Doug Mader give a preview of the conference on the ScienceNews Radio network program, the Promise of Tomorrow with Colonel Mason. The program, which originates in Dallas, Texas, is to air Monday and then webcast for its world audience at www.PromiseOfTomorrow.biz

In the prerecorded interview, Mader and Bourg say they also hope to get papers on availability, security, and deliverability of renewable energy, and addressing the challenges of grid operations in systems with integrated green resources, such as SCADA vulnerabilities. Reports in homeland security circles say many of the current vulnerabilities in the power grid are attributable to newly adopted smart-grid technology.

Other selected topics of interest are said to be on deployment or removal of key barriers, and progress in addressing integration challenges. Plus paper on progress in the retirement of polluting fossil-fuel resources are sought.

The committee is also looking for useful case studies and inspiring success stories; and tools needed to plan, design, and operate systems with integrated green energy resources.

Only original unpublished papers on green technology should be submitted and all original unpublished papers on green technology, renewable energy, and clean technology will be considered. Deadline for submission is October 1, 2014 and decision notification will be made on December 15, 2014. Submission information will be at the conference website in June 2014, http://www.ieeegreentech.org/ .
