Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a great pleasure for me to welcome all the delegates to the 18th International Conference on Clean Energy 2020, (ICCE2020) here in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. On behalf of the organizing committee, I would like to express our utmost appreciation and gratitude to Clean Energy Research Institute (CERI), University of Miami, for their confidence and support. We are thankful to have the privilege of holding this event here in this beautiful land of Sarawak and the first of the conference series in South East Asian. We are also indebted to Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB) and Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), without their backing and excellent arrangement, this conference would have not been possible.
Malaysia has pledged to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and has provided incentives for the utilization of renewable energy sources to further reduce the carbon emission. One of the best options is via clean energy systems. It is timely that Malaysia hosts this event to strengthen its commitment towards cleaner environment. This conference is a platform for regional policy makers, researchers, academicians, industry players and enforcement agencies to jointly explore progress in technology, research and development in clean energy. This is also a venue for them to exchange ideas and share aspiration towards sustainable and clean energy system. ICCE2020 offers the best academic symposia in this region and features exhibition for companies to showcase their products. The involvement of companies would assist them in promoting their latest invention.
The spill-effect of organizing this event would be felt in areas related to energy sectors. Such industries are the backbone of the nation’s aspiration towards fully developed nation. Key players in energy sectors and technology providers are gathering here to participate in this event. Policy makers would find this event meaningful to address issues associated with pollution abatement, mitigation of environmental disaster particularly concerning air pollution control technologies. The event would also enlighten the policy makers on the state of the art technologies and for drafting and amending existing regulation.
Lastly, my heartiest congratulations are due to the organizing committee for having tirelessly working towards making this event a reality.
