The International Conference on Renewable Energy Research & Challenge (ICoRER) 2019 held in conjunction with the 12th AUN/SEED-Net Regional Conference on Energy Engineering (RCEneE) was successfully completed on 13th November, 2019 in Banyuwangi, Indonesia. The conference organized by Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) showed an outstanding collaboration among scholars, government sectors and industrial sectors.
