With the reduction of traditional fossil fuels and increasingly serious global environmental degradation and health dangers, we are ready to meet new age of energy production. While human demands for energy will not decrease, the largest shifts are the increase in the renewable energy share and the decline in the traditional energy share. New energy occupies an increasingly important position in the whole energy system. New sources of energy, aided by improved technology and productivity, underpinned by large-scale investments make a significant contribution to supply growth. Entering its 6th year, New Energy Forum (NEF) has been grown substantially, NEF-2016 will provide a perfect opportunity to researchers from academia and professionals from industry, as well as government regulators to tackle energy challenges, and exchange best practices about improved new energy technology and cooperation.

Dr. Ken Howard
Ken Howard is a hydrogeologist, certified by the American Institute of Hydrology, chartered by the British Geological Society and registered as a Professional Geoscientist with the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario. He has wide experience in all aspects of groundwater resource evaluation, management and protection.
He was elected President of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) in September 2012, and continues in his role as Director of the IAH Urban Groundwater Network (IAH-UGN). He is also Director of the Groundwater Research Group at the University of Toronto. Since the mid-1970's he has worked on numerous applied projects in eastern Canada, UK, the West Indies, Australia and equatorial Africa, publishing articles on topics that range from numerical flow modeling and contaminant migration to environmental isotopes and borehole geophysics. In much of this work, he has focussed special attention on point and non-point sources of groundwater contamination and on the sub-surface transport and modeling of both reactive and non-reactive groundwater constituents.
Overseas, regional projects have included the long-term sustainability of well yields in bedrock aquifers of Uganda, the use of fossil groundwaters in the Sahel of Mali and Niger as a means of reducing desertification, and the origin of saline lakes in southeastern Australia. He has also carried out considerable research on the intrusion of saline groundwater into karstic carbonates of the Clarendon Plains, Jamaica and beneath Pacific atolls.
Mr. Andrew Lang
Andrew Lang graduated from Melbourne University in 1971 and undertook further study at Latrobe University, Melbourne. He is an agricultural scientist, teacher, farmer and farm forester, and is presently the president of Farm Forest Growers Victoria, and Chairman of SMARTimbers cooperative. He is a Churchill and Gottstein Fellow, studying forestry management and bioenergy technologies in Europe, North America and Asia.
Since 2008 he has served on the board of the World Bioenergy Association. He has co-authored a number of publications, with the most recent being Jatropha Oil Production for Biodiesel and Other Products (2013). In 2014 he is lead-author of an analytical report on feedstocks, processes, logistics and economics, for large-scale bio-jetfuel production.
While Andrew Lang’s main area of study is with agrobiomass and forestry wastes to energy, he also is informed on production of biofuels and utilisation of municipal wastes for energy, including upgrading of biogas as a fuel for light and heavy vehicles. His interests also cover the topics of energy-efficient building and urban designs, and of development of cleantech industry clusters and biorefineries.
