Hannover, 26.10.2010, The world must de-carbonize its energy production and consumption. But how? How can we achieve the necessary improvements in energy efficiency? How can we give consumers more visibility and control over consumption? How can local - often, unpredictable - renewable energy sources schedule their output for maximum efficiency? How can we optimize the mix of local energy production and the main power grid for maximum efficiency? How do we manage energy consumption at the building level - and even at the level of individual home appliances and office equipment? Just how do we implement intelligent demand management and smart metering and also protect them from malicious hack attacks? And how do we implement building-level energy storage?
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 https://www.fp7-smartcode.eu/]SmartCoDe project. 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.
The SmartCoDe Expert Cooperation Workshop will take place on November 16, 2010 in Vienna, Austria. For further information regarding registration, location and agenda, please visit https://www.fp7-smartcode.eu/events/ecw2010]SmartCoDe Expert Cooperation Workshop 2010. Registration deadline is October 31, 2010.
edacentrum is an institution dedicated to promote electronic design automation (EDA) research and development funded by the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research). It initiates, evaluates and supervises industry-driven R&D projects and offers a comprehensive spectrum of services on all matters concerning EDA, particularly project management of R&D projects. By encouraging EDA cluster research projects and EDA networks, it cross-leverages and reinforces the EDA expertise of universities and research institutes.
edacentrum provides a communication platform for the EDA community; it seeks to inform upper management, the public and the political arena about the central importance of design automation for solving complex system and semiconductor problems, especially those associated with nanoelectronics.
