Summary:

Going along auto consumption, Internet of energy is an emerging idea in Europe. Aiming at renewable and fatal energy valorization for district communities, its implementation rises technical development and questions energy economy and governance. Eco-SESA invites to a cross-disciplinary discussion to access a systemic vision and discuss methods and tools allowing the perception of local energy exchanges.

Detailed programme:

Monday 3 June
10:30am - 12:30pm
Interactive building and district communities: Why involvement of end-users of energy is crucial?
Collective self-consumption questions and renews the dynamics of building and district communities. Interaction between technical systems and users becomes necessary to ensure the balance between production and consumption. It assumes an self-conscious, fair and time-varying repartition of produced energy. How to conceive the interactions between technical systems and users? Which human-machine interfaces should be preferred? How are local communities of energy sharing created and organized? How to design privacy-friendly collective information systems?

Conclusion of the session
12:30pm - 2pm Lunch
2pm - 4pm
Energy communities from materials and components to global networks
The rise of renewable energies, especially within collective self-consumption, reverses the paradigm of centralized energy. How to regulate collective self-consumption at a local and national level? How to ensure network flexibility and solidarity ? Does largely developed new material for renewable production and energy storage fit collective self-consumption?
