This workshop discusses how. The workshop – the first of three between now and 2012 – is ideal for anyone who wants a better understanding of the technological and market requirements that affect these issues. It is given by industry experts and prestigious academics (see below) involved in the SmartCoDe project (https://www.fp7-smartcode.eu/).
But you don’t have to be a SmartCoDe project participant or contributor to benefit from the discussion. You can benefit if you are an R&D expert in areas related to increasing energy efficiency – and you can contribute ideas to fine-tune the SmartCoDe project’s direction.
Our two keynote presentations are given by prominent players in the climate/energy space: Prof. Dr. Nebojsa Nakicenovic, a former IPCC official and Bettina Lenz, of the EWE Research Centre for Energy Technology. Please see below for detailed programme information.
Registration deadline is October 31, 2010.If you are interested in hearing about the topics, we cordially invite you to join us. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Energy de-carbonization requires a dramatic improvement in energy efficiency. This is driving "smart integration" between energy generation and the end use, which is undergoing a transformation toward more self-organization using Internet-like management tools. The speaker discusses the implications for R&D, deployment, and the economics.Energy Forecasting for Distributed Generation in Local Energy Neighbourhoods
Distributed feed-in of renewable energy into the low-voltage-grid will increase significantly. However, energy that cannot be used instantaneously should be stored – and storage devices are usually very costly. The speaker discusses the motivation for energy storage, reviews storage technology, and presents an initial approach to system sizing.Security Considerations for SmartCoDe Network

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
