Robust infrastructure and sufficiency of energy are fundamental imperatives for development of any economy around the globe. There is huge gap between energy needs of developed world and developing countries. Our earth has limited natural resources to fulfill our energy needs; hence we have to think seriously on saving our energy resources for future generations. We need to create sustainable habitats, cities, communities for our better life. To achieve this objective, people, industries, communities and the governments need to work together. The Paris Climate Change Agreement 2015 ensures that all the countries across the world should work together to combat climate change and balance our energy needs for the better world.

School of Petroleum Management (SPM), Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, Gandhinagar is organizing International Conference on Energy and Infrastructure Management- 2018 (ICEIM 2018) in its 6th edition with an objective & scope to deliberate, discuss and document key contemporary issues relevant to managing energy & infrastructure sector with reference to emerging economies. The conference shall also focus on identifying new opportunities, challenges, best practices and strategies for sustainable growth of these sectors.
