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

Chemical weathering of rocks over geological time scales is an important control on the stability of the climate. This weathering is, in turn, highly dependent...
Before the fluid of the middle ear drains and sound waves penetrate for the first time, the inner ear cells of newborn rodents practice for their big debut. Researchers at Johns Hopkins report they have figured out the molecular chain of events that enables the cells to make “sounds” on their own, essentially “practicing” their ability to process sounds in the world around them.
The researchers, who describe their experiments in the Dec. 3 edition of the journal Cell, show how hair cells in the inner ear can be activated in the absence...
Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...
Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
