2nd AIGE/IIETA International Conference and 11th AIGE 2017 Conference on "Energy Management, Recovery, Saving, Storage and Renewable Systems"

The Conference

The 2nd AIGE/IIETA International Conference and 11th AIGE 2017 Conference and the on "Energy Conversion, Management, Recovery, Saving, Storage and Renewable Systems" is organized under the joint auspices of the AIGE and IIETA with the aim of providing technical information to their members and to the scientific and industrial community at large.

The joint Conferences will give the opportunity to discuss the state of the art and to present experimental, analytical and numerical results in Energy Conversion Systems, Energy Management, Energy Recovery Systems, Energy Saving Techniques, Energy Storage and Advanced Systems with a particular attention to the engineering, environmental and economic aspects. The following list of topics is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather to indicate topics that fall within the aim of the conference.

  1. Energy Conversion and Management
  2. Energy Planning and Policy
  3. Power Systems and Networks
  4. Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer
  5. Renewables and Nuclear Energy Sources


The Conference will be held at University of Genoa, Italy, in the framework of the Polytechnic School, at the Department of Architecture, Aula Benvenuto, Stradone S. Agostino, 37 – (I)16123 GENOA.

Genoa is one of the more ancient Italian settlements, dating from the 6th and 5th centuries BC, going through the Roman age and birth city of outstanding pioneers such as Cristoforo Colombo (navigator and explorer, 1451-1506) or Nicolò Paganini (violinist, guitarist, and composer, 1782 – 1840) . Nowadays it is the 5th largest Italian city and capital of the Liguria region.

Genoa is located in the north-west part of Italy, and is connected to Rome by train (in about four hours), Milan (two hours) and by plane to many European cities. Spring is the ideal season to visit the city thanks to its mild temperature (22 to 26 °C, 72 to 79 °F).

Tours Suggestions

Genoa (in Italian, Genova) is a historical port city having a long history as a rich and powerful trade centre. However, with its multitude of hidden gems behind cozy alleyways, excellent cuisine (notably fish and seafood), renovated old port, beautiful sights (including one of Europe's biggest aquariums and most ancient historical old-town centers), represents an enticing place which is gradually becoming more included in the touristic market. With pastel-colored terracotta-roofed houses, artistic churches, lovely seaside villas, and also several luxurious boutiques, the city is worth to be visited and a good base to explore the Italian Riviera and world famous places like Portofino and the Cinque Terre.
