Note: In the wake of government restrictions and in the interest of the safety of our conference attendees, Energy Oceania committee and Prism Scientific Services has decided to postpone the Energy Oceania Conference until 2021. In addition, many universities in the whole world, as well as funding agencies have imposed travel restrictions that prevent a strong number of participants from attending or making travel plans. The new dates for Energy Oceania 2021 are September 06-08, 2021.


Energy Oceania Conference embraces a strong motive in promoting novel innovations to overcome existing challenges and break the barriers in energy transition for a sustainable future by laying a global platform.
