The 9th International Green Energy Conference (IGEC-IX) will be held in Tianjin, China, May 25-28, 2014. It directly follows the previous 8 successful conferences held in North America, Asia, Europe and Middle East, sponsored by the International Association for Green Energy (IAGE).

The City of Tianjin, China, is about half an hour ride from Beijing, China’s Capital city, by high-speed trains. It is the economic powerhouse powering the third (and the present) wave of China’s economic growth.

The IGEC conference series is a multi-disciplinary conference on energy systems and technologies with no/reduced environmental, economic and social impact, and provides a forum for the exchange of technical information, for the dissemination of high-quality research results, and for the debate and shaping of future directions and priorities in energy sustainability and security.
