TÜBA, as the national science academy of Turkey, conducts the research/reporting activities and scientific meetings with working groups. TÜBA Energy Working Group continues scientific-based activities in line with the innovations and needs of the age. The developments such as increasing population, rapidly rising industrial production, and technological improvement have increased the dependence of countries and societies on energy. This emerging need has brought along studies on the concept of energy security and alternative energy searches.
Energy has been always at the forefront throughout human history and shaped modern times. As a result of our ongoing habit of using wood, coal, natural gas, and oil as primary energy resources, humanity has been introduced to the concepts of “global warming” and “climate change” in the 20th century. Due to the increased environmental threat, clean energy transformation programs have been initiated and widened to a global scale at the end of the last century. Hence, fossil fuel use in developed and developing countries has gradually decreased, and humanity has been taking firm steps towards a carbon-free future.
Today, energy investments and roadmaps are planned with the common perspective of many different disciplines such as economics, international politics, social sciences, informatics, health, and natural and applied sciences. In this context, on behalf of the Turkish Academy of Sciences, I would like to invite you to the TÜBA World Conference on Energy Science and Technology (TÜBA WCEST-2021), to be held between 8 – 12 August 2021, to discuss the energy technologies, strategies, and policies in a multidisciplinary aspect.
