Thinkershub invites all the Participants from around the globe to attend the World Renewable Energy Conference (Thinkershub REC 2017)will take in London and organised by Thinkershub organisation during October 23-25 2017, London, United Kingdom.
Renewable energy is energy that is generated from natural processes that are continuously replenished. This includes sunlight, geothermal heat, wind, tides, water, and various forms of biomass. This energy cannot be exhausted and is constantly renewed. The Renewable energy industry generates hundreds of billions in economic activity, and is expected to continue to grow rapidly in the coming years. There is tremendous economic opportunity for the countries that invent, manufacture and export clean energy technologies.
The global renewable energy market (excluding biofuels) reached $432.7 billion in 2013 and $476.3 billion in 2014. This market is expected to increase to $777.6 billion in 2019.
IRENA estimates that renewable energy employed 8.1 million people around the world in 2015 (excluding large hydropower). This is a 5% increase from the number reported the previous year. In addition, IRENA conducted a second global estimate of large hydropower employment, showing approximately 1.3 million direct jobs in the sector. Countries with the highest number of renewable energy jobs were China, Brazil, the United States, India, Japan and Germany. Solar PV was the largest renewable energy employer with 2.8 million jobs worldwide, an 11% increase over 2014. Solar PV employment grew in Japan and the United States, stabilised in China, and continued decreasing in the European Union. Wind power witnessed a record growth year. Strong installation rates in China, the United States and Germany resulted in a 5% increase in global employment, to reach 1.1 million jobs
Doubling the share of renewables in the energy mix by 2030 would increase global GDP by up to 1.1 per cent, improve welfare by up to 3.7 per cent and support over 24 million jobs in the sector.
In this digital age, conferences and face-to-face meeting are increasingly being substituted by webinars, video conferences and other forms of digital communication. There are some clear advantages with digital communication such as convenience, cost and time savings. Despite these advantages, the impact of communicating in person is much higher and is backed by scientific evidence. According to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, during face-to-face communication, synchronization of brain activity between partners occur leading to successful exchange of information. Besides, frequent eye-contact during face-to-face communication helps build trust between individuals and produce better outcomes such as increased creativity and productivity. Hence, conferences and meetings are necessary even in a world dominated by digital communication channels.
ThinkersHub facilitate these face-to-face interactions between scientists, technologists and other innovators around the world through THconferences. It covers a wide range of topics – from renewable energy to cancer – and aim to identify knowledge gaps in specific research areas. Sessions formats include keynote lectures, oral presentations, symposia, workshops and poster presentations. Besides, THconferences will serve as a platform for young researchers from around the world to showcase their work and for professional development through workshops and discussion forums.
London: Global Knowledge Hub as Venue for our conferences
London is a centre for academic excellence. London is the second most visited city in the world. International students come from over 200 different nations, making London a global, vibrant and diverse city. Over 70 Nobel Prize laureates have studied or worked at London universities. There are over 45 universities in London, including top multi-faculty universities and world-class specialist institutions. Universities in London have a combined research income of over £500 million ($820 million).
Thinkershub wants to make meetings as sustainable as possible. This conference centre has a Responsible Business programme and has been awarded Gold accreditation by the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) for its efforts in environmental practice and responsible business.
