International Energy Modeling Experts meet in Freiburg

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 40th edition of the International Energy Workshop (IEW), a leading conference for the international energy modeling community, will take place from May 25 to 27, 2022 in Freiburg, Germany. It will be hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE. Early Bird tickets can be purchased until April 15.

Computational modeling allows to estimate and plan future developments of the energy system.

The topics of the workshop range from energy policy to decarbonization of buildings, industries and economies, integration of renewable energies and the role of technologies for the energy transition. In doing so, the IEW offers international analysts the opportunity to compare quantitative energy forecasts, discuss methodological issues, and observe new trends in global energy production and consumption. Case studies from developing and developed countries will highlight the consequences of energy policy decisions.

This year's keynote speakers include Francesco Ferioli, energy analyst in the European Commission's energy modeling team, and EnBW board member Dr. Georg-Nikolaus Stamatelopoulos. "We are very pleased to host the international research community in the field of energy systems in Freiburg and to be able to offer them such a top-class program," explains Prof. Hans-Martin Henning, Chairman of the conference and Institute Director of Fraunhofer ISE.
