Optics and Photonics for Energy & the Environment (E2)


E2 focuses on monitoring and controlling the generation of energy and its impact on the environment.

The conference will showcase optical techniques and instrumentation used in sensing and transmitting information relating to energy and the environment. It will bring together people from industry, university, and government to address environmental impacts of energy production and policies to guide its management. Special emphasis will be on sensor devices and optical techniques for energy, environment, and air-quality monitoring, energy usage and transmission (including smart grid technology), and energy efficiency in industry.
