REDEC 2018 is a specific scientific conference that helps in finding innovative and adequate solutions for energy saving and production in developing countries. During the first REDEC 2012, the second REDEC 2014 and the third REDEC 2016 conferences, participants from across the globe have discussed the scientific issues that were presented and subsequently published in IEEE Xplore.
Due to the fruitful results, the organization of REDEC 2018 has started with additional types of sessions with new proposed topics giving more chance to a wide profile of participants to present their work in the domain of renewable energy and related research.

Renewable energies like solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, biofuel and others are extensively found in developing countries. Although some of these countries are involved in very important renewable energy projects, most of them suffer from the weakness of scientific and economic planning, the reduced financial means, and the lack of technical knowhow. This conference will give opportunities to researchers from all over the world to discuss scientific issues that help in improving the renewable energy production in developing countries. The suggested solutions and strategies that will be presented in this conference may encourage investors to support the implementation in these countries of renewable energy generation stations.

REDEC 2018 will be held on 1-2 November 2018 at Beirut which is the city of mixed cultures. It has around five thousand years of history. Discovered ruins in Beirut Downtown show the traces of Phoenician, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Crusader and Ottoman civilizations. Visiting Beirut is a great opportunity to see how contrasts in the architecture, in the convictions, and in the way of living may coexist.
