Welcome to the CEN2022-Applied Energy Symposium 2022: Clean Energy towards Carbon Neutrality.

Whilst energy has always provided the foundation for social and economic development worldwide, the rapid rise in energy consumption has led to significant pressure on global energy reserves and the environment. There is a growing consensus that the factors of ‘clean’ and ‘sustainable’ are becoming increasingly relevant in the energy sector. Hence, there is a global demand for clean, sustainable and cost-effective energy to fuel current and future developments, but not at the expense of the environment. It is a collective effort to meet such targets and it is essential that the energy policy makers are more informed and deliberate now more than ever. With Clean Energy as the main focus of this symposium, the CEN2022 aims to provide a knowledge exchange and transfer platform for international leading researchers, industrial experts and policy makers to share recent advances, experience and expertise in the area of clean energy and its associated studies, and thus fuel the advancement towards a carbon neutral and greener future.

The CEN2022 will be held on April 23-25, 2022 in the city of Ningbo, one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities in China. The three-day event is jointly organized by Applied Energy and the Applied Energy Innovation Institute (AEii), and jointly hosted by the Nottingham Ningbo China Beacons of Excellence Research and Innovation Institute, University of Nottingham Ningbo China and Zhejiang University.

The symposium will include keynotes, invited talks, plenary sessions, oral presentations and poster sessions. Outstanding papers will be considered for full publication in a special issue of Applied Energy (Ranked 1/185 in Engineering, IF of 9.746, CAS Q1, Top Journal,
