The International Institute for Carbon-Neutral Energy Research (I2CNER), Kyushu University, will host the "2019 I²CNER Annual Symposium: Energy Transitions and the Role of CCS toward a Carbon-Neutral Energy Society" on January 31, 2019 in Fukuoka, Japan.


As the title implies, the upcoming symposium will focus on the issues surrounding the transition to a low-carbon energy future, considering both the deployment of renewable energy and the role of carbon capture and storage (CCS). Through discussion and exchange of ideas in this symposium, it is our hope that I2CNER can continue to identify ideal technological combinations, policy approaches, as well as emerging opportunities, and assess where the Institute’s research activities should be focused on a moving-forward basis.


Date: Thursday, January 31, 2019

            Symposium: 9:30 am-6:00 pm

            Reception: 6:00 pm-7:30 pm

Message from Petros Sofronis, Director of I2CNER

This year’s Annual Symposium is being jointly organized by our Energy Analysis and CO2 Storage Divisions. Our focus this year is to underpin the future low-carbon energy transition through a combination of renewable energy deployment, socio-technical regime understanding, and utilization of carbon capture and storage (CCS).  


We sincerely look forward to your participation.




In line with the Annual Symposium, joint research symposiums and division workshops will take place on Wednesday, January 30, and Friday, February 2, 2019 as follows.
