International scientific seminar on energy and green growth

.

On November 16th 2012, the Institute of Energy Science held an international scientific seminar on energy and green growth in Hanoi to promote information exchange, cooperation and experience sharing in studies on developing energy sources in association with restoring and preserving natural ecosystems, and minimizing the impact of climate changes.

The seminar drew the participation of Prof. Sc. Dr. Duong Ngoc Hai, vice president of the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST); Dr. Sadokho Valery Evgenevich, Ambassador of the Republic of Belarus to Vietnam; Prof. Didier Lecomte, Science Director of the University of Science and Technology of Hanoi; Prof. Dmitriev Ghennady Mikhailovich, director of the Institute of Energy under the Belarus National Academy of Science; Ms. Bogacheva Alla Ivanovna, general director of Eco-Energetika company, Saint-Peterburg, Russian Federation; Dr. Edelev Aleksei Vladimirovich from Melentiev Energy Systems Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences; representatives from departments and institutes under VAST, universities and scientific organizations; and domestic and foreign scientific researchers.
Green growth is a new approach in economic development. This approach not only brings economic benefit, but also works to restore and preserve natural ecosystem, support human life, and minimize the impact of climate changes. Therefore, many countries in the world are adopting this new trend towards sustainable development.
Energy and green growth may seem opposed, but must be unified for socio-economic development. To exist and develop, human beings need energy, but exploiting and using energy is one of the major causes of greenhouse gas emissions, environmental pollution, and exhaustion of natural resources. It is necessary to have the effort and cooperation of the government, international organizations, managers, scientists, enterprises and communities to solve the problems around energy and green growth.

Prof. Sc. Dr. Duong Ngoc Hai, VAST vice president, made a speech at the seminar

To obtain objectives in economic development, each country, especially developing countries, need to define difficulties during economic growth in the context of “green growth”. 

The seminar received enthusiastic and active participation from organizations, individuals, scientists, energy experts from the Institute of Energy Science, VAST, and Vietnamese and foreign colleagues. The seminar collection released 41 scientific reports selected from 85 reports by 98 Vietnamese and foreign authors. These reports present research results of scientists in three major fields related to green growth, including sustainably developing energy systems and national energy; exploiting and using new and renewable energy; and using energy more economically and effectively.
