Germany, Austria, and Switzerland have set ambitious targets for increasing energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emission and enlarging the share of renewable energy sources. Energy Informatics is developing the IT-based solutions required for achieving these targets. Applications include the construction of intelligent energy networks (“Smart Grids”), their utilisation for integrating renewable energy sources and energy storage, increased flexibility of demand as well as the design of systems for improving total efficiency, system stability and security of supply.
The objective of Energieinformatik 2015 is the support of a research-based development and implementation phase of adequate information and communication technologies (ICT)and to foster the transfer between academia, industry, and service providers in the
D-A-CH region. The conference addresses scientists and practitioners as well.
