The 9th IEEE Conference on Technologies for Sustainability (SusTech 2022) is designed to explore development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It brings together scientists, engineers, technologists and scholars from multiple disciplines to hold a dialogue on environmental issues and collaborate on ideas to develop and utilize innovative tools and intelligent systems to address the need for Sustainable Infrastructure.
Preliminary Program Schedule (including papers) is now available here.
The Sustainable Aviation Forum features Keynotes and a Panel with world class aviation experts, plus a special session in the SusTech sessions on Powering Sustainable Aviation.

“Accelerating Renewable Energy through Standards”
Moderator: Rudi Schubert
Standards can make a difference in how a new technology is implemented, especially in the area of renewable energy. This panel will discuss recently released standards enabling renewable energy, and engagements related to these standards where IEEE is actively supporting clean energy and climate change solutions, including our involvement in the Global Power Systems Transformation Consortium
Moderator: Sharan Kalwani
Nuclear power continues to develop technologically. Abundant energy is the base for advanced societies. We are being squeezed by two forces. The first is that our coal and oil burning does inflict lethal (yes, lethal) damage. The second is that coal and oil have finite resource lifetimes. They are a fixed resource that we burn huge amounts by the minute. This panel will discuss trends in the nuclear power industry.
Moderator: Siobhan Dolan Clancy, Founder & CEO of SDC Business Consulting Ltd.
We are now seeing a fundamental paradigm shift in the way the aviation sector is embracing a net-zero emissions target by 2050, with a common understanding that it will take multiple stakeholders working together to make it possible. There is a coming together of industry stakeholders including airlines, airports, aircraft /engine manufacturers, fuel suppliers as well as government and regulators in declarations of commitment and partnerships to work together to reach the aggressive emission reduction target while the industry is forecasting passenger numbers and air traffic to double in the same timeframe.
