Call for Papers: International Energy Workshop 2022

The 40th edition of the International Energy Workshop (IEW) will take place from May 25 to 27 2022 in Freiburg, Germany and will be hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE. The IEW is a leading conference for the international energy modeling community. In a world of environmental and economic constraints, energy modeling is an increasingly important tool for addressing the complexity of energy planning and policy making. The IEW provides a venue for analysts to compare quantitative energy projections, to understand the reasons for diverging views of future energy developments, and to observe new trends in global energy production and consumption.

Researchers and practitioners from countries around the world are invited to submit original papers with new and innovative results on scientific, technical and practical experience on the economics of energy and climate systems. As is customary for the IEW, papers should be quantitative and rigorous.

The deadline for paper submission is February 1, 2022.

A (non-exclusive) list of potential conference topics is:

  • Reaching net-zero emissions: Reaching net-zero emissions and climate neutrality: modelling the transition; sectoral modelling enhancements and coverage of all emissions in all sectors, sustainability and circular economy 
  • Emerging markets and decarbonisation: modelling future energy services, synthetic fuels and resources analysis for the energy sector in transition
  • Managing power system transitions: addressing flexibility and system aspects for the integration of variable renewables; market design; integrated modelling looking at future energy systems and dealing with short-term issues
  • Technology insights: role of technologies in the energy transitions (e.g. CCUS and negative emission technologies, hydrogen, energy efficiency in demand and supply)
  • Cities and digitalisation: analysing the transition in cities and the impact of smart and digital technologies on the future energy system
  • Socioeconomic analysis of the energy transition: employment, skills, health, investments, consumer bills, integrating behaviour in energy models such as sufficiency

Selected papers will be presented and discussed in thematic sessions, circulated during the meeting and also posted on the meeting website.

Submission of papers

Full papers or long abstracts (minimum 1000 words) in pdf format should be submitted online at IEW 2022 no later than February 1, 2022. For further information please see: or contact:
