The 15th Conference on Research & Development in Power Engineering will be held on 30 November – 3 December 2021

with Honorary Patronage taken by

the Rector of Warsaw University of Technology (WUT)

The 15th Conference on Research & Development in Power Engineering is organized by the Institute of Heat Engineering (WUT) and the Institute of Applied Research (WUT) in collaboration with the Committees on Energy, Thermodynamics and Combustion, Polish Academy of Sciences.

Over the years, this biannual event has become a leading forum for discussing issues related to the sector of power engineering for representatives of industry and academics. It is a platform for exchange of knowledge, raising questions and providing answers on the state-of-the-art power engineering by people with unquestionable expertise in the field.

Bearing in mind the challenges which the sector of power engineering has been facing, the conference can be considered as an important event to shape the European and Polish energy sector


Conference fee:

1 400 PLN / 1 200 PLN* (if paid till 6 October 2021)

1 600 PLN / 1 400 PLN* (if paid after 6 October 2021)
