Welcome to ICNEA 2021

Announcement about Covid-19 Due to the lasting impact of covid-19 pandemic, the organizing committees strongly encourage the authors to attend the conference in a virtual mode and present their papers online. We have significantly reduced the registration fee for authors who choose virtual participation. In the meanwhile, we will keep monitoring the situation and the conference may be held as a fully virtual conference since the safety and well-being of the participants is our top priority.

2021 5th International Conference on New Energy and Applications (ICNEA 2021) aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, and professinals from the industry, academia and government to discourse on research and development, professional practice in new enery and applications. ICNEA 2021 will  be sponsored by iNech, SGCE and  technically supported by Yokohama National University, which will be held in Phuket, Thailand during November 6-8, 2021. It is one of the leading international conferences for presenting novel and fundamental advances in the field of new energy and applications.


The conference serves to foster communication among researchers and practitioners working in a wide variety of scientific areas with a common interest in improving new energy technology and related techniques. It also brings authors and readers of SGCE together to communicate face to face and discuss chances for possible cooperation and hot topics in the field of new energy and applications.
