2nd International Tropical Renewable Energy (2nd i-TREC 2017)

3-4 October 2017

Courtyard by Marriott Bali Nusa Dua Resort, Indonesia


Tropical Renewable Energy Center (TREC), Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia is pleased to announce the 2nd International Tropical Renewable Energy (2nd i-TREC 2017), 3 – 4 October 2017 in the Courtyard by Marriott, Bali Nusa Dua Resort,  Indonesia.

We would like to invite you to submit your abstract and paper through the conference website:

The main theme of this conference is “Towards Tropical Renewable Energy Innovation and Technology Integration”.

The 2nd i-TREC 2017 provides a forum for researchers, academicians, scientists and industrial professionals around the world on recent developments in the fields of tropical renewable energy. The conference consists of keynotes, oral sessions and poster presentations.

The aim of this conference is to promote opportunities and challenges on tropical renewable energy, integrated with environmentally safe and economically sustainable innovation, as well as to create theoretical base of the development, utilization, and implementation for further applications. This is also to encourage relevant research and exchanging new ideas between scholars and practitioners.


The 2nd i-TREC 2017 topics are covered by three symposia, namely:

Symposium 1:  Renewable Energy System and Regulation

The following topics will be included in this symposium (but will not be limited to):
