With the continuing rapid expansion of the economy in the last decade and now the recovery after the recent downturn, many demands will be placed on energy services and the environment. The future will see a continuing challenge to balance growth with sustainability in the economic, social and environmental sectors. The International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering (ICSEEE 2016) aims to address global challenges in sustainable development by bringing together stakeholders from universities, industries, government agents and businesses that are involved in the invention, design, development and implementation of sustainable technologies. The first ICSEEE was held in 2012 and the second ICSEEE was held in 2013, the third ICSEEE was held in 2014 and the fourth ICSEEE was held in 2015. And the 2016 5th International Conference on Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering (ICSEEE 2016) was taken place in Shenzhen, China, November 12-13, 2016.
All papers have undergone a careful peer-review by expert referees to the professional and scientific standards before being selected for publication in these volumes. The total number of submitted papers was 564 and 173 are accepted. Studies presented in this book cover these topics: Development and Utilization of Solar Energy, Biomass Energy, Wind Energy and other New Energies; Energy Materials, Energy Chemical Engineering, Green Building Materials, Ecological Buildings, Energy-saving Buildings and Architectural Environment Analysis; Power System and Automation, High Voltage and Insulation Technology; Power System Management; Environmental Chemistry and Biology, Environmental Safety and Health, Disaster Prevention and Mitigation; Environmental Planning, Assessment, Analysis, Monitoring and Protection; Pollution Control Project (Air, Water, Solid); Waste Disposal and Recycling; Ecological Environmental Protection; Hydrology, Water Resources Engineering, and Hydraulic; Soil and Water Conservation and Desertification Control; Mineral, Oil and Gas Resources: Prospecting, Exploration, Mining and Process Engineering; Energy-Saving, Low-Carbon, Eco-Economy, Circular Economy, Environmental Protection and Economic Development, etc.
