About Environment-Friendly Energies and Applications (EFEA)

Environment-Friendly Energies and Applications (EFEA) is a forum for bringing academics, scientists, engineers and industry together to discuss the recent developments in environment friendly energies and their applications. The main theme of this conference is on renewable and sustainable energy systems, hybrid transportation systems, energy tranision and energy security. The 7th Edition of EFEA will be held in Flic en Flac, Mauritius, on December 14-16, 2022. The event will be hosted by Université des Mascareignes, in close collaboration with University of Northumbria, and the University of Aberdeen.

EFEA 2022 is the seventh event in the EFEA series, following EFEA 2010 in Ghardaia, EFEA 2012 in Newcastle, EFEA 2014 in Paris, EFEA 2016 in Belgrade, EFEA 2018 in Rome, and EFEA 2021 in Sofia.
