Energy Saving for Fluid Machinery Equipment and Effective Usage of Unused Energies

25 - 31 August 2010


Energies in various forms are indispensable for sustaining human life and pursuing development. Consumption of energy resources worldwide has increased conspicuously in the past decades along with economic growth and population increase, for which exhaustible fossil fuel resources are occupying majority of consumption. Such mass consumption has resulted in serious environmental impacts represented by emission of greenhouse gases.

Energy efficiency is the cheapest, fastest and smartest strategy available for saving money and resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions around the world. To provide energy security and to preserve the environment for future generations, it is essential to be knowledgeable about state-of-the-art technologies in effective measures for energy conservation.


The Training Course is intended to

  • Inform trends in energy demands and impacts on the environment,
  • Understand energy saving methods in fluid machinery and air conditioning systems,
  • Understand utilization technologies of unused energies in the systems, and
  • Describe Life Cycle Assessment on energies for environmental evaluation
