Fossil fuels and nuclear energy contributes to more than 80 % of the global energy supply. Their share will dominate for decades to come and also beyond 2050, while the share of renewables will certainly increase gradually and steadily. The Ukrainian crisis has demonstrated in a dramatic manner the vulnerability of the global and regional energy supply chain and means also to wide extent as energy security is national security. However, the uneven distribution of energy supplies among countries has led to significant vulnerabilities. 

The Secretary General of the United Nations stressed on 23rd March 2022 that the war in Ukraine is a global crisis, given the impact, it is having on energy, food, or fertilizer markets and the great risks it poses to all countries, especially the poorest ones. “No country will be able to isolate itself from a collapse of the global economic system, the ripple effect of food or fuel hoarding, or the long-term impact of increasing poverty and
hunger. With rapid and continued population growth in the world, depletion of natural resources, and climate change, it is no longer a question of when we will incorporate various renewable energy sources into the mix, but how fast the transition can be managed. IFEED held a series of conferences concerning renewable energy for Power, Food, Water, and industry in Germany, China, Canada, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, and Denmark.

The conference will focus on strategies, technologies, research incentives, and policies to accelerate the transition process and secure reliable, sustainable, and affordable energy access, and avoid food catastrophe in the 21st- Century for mankind.
