Series II: Demonstrators


Lunch talk series II: ESI platform

On Thursday, 31 March 2022, Christian Peter from PSI presented the Energy System Integration (ESI) platform, a physical experimental demonstrator for testing the technical feasibility of different processes and methods.



Lunch talk series II: Ehub platform

On Thursday, 03 March 2022, Philipp Heer from Empa presented the Ehub platform, a virtualised environment that manages the data flow of the Empa-NEST and -move demonstrators and enables energy management, building control and real-time sector coupling. 



Lunch talk series II: EPFL Smart Grid 

On Thursday, 03 February 2022, Prof. Mario Paolone from EPFL presented the Smart Grid demonstrator, an infrastructure for experimental validation of technologies to be deployed on a large scale for situational awareness and control of power distribution systems.

Series I: Models / Tools


Lunch talk series I: EXPANSE model

On Thursday, 28 October 2021, Prof. Evelina Trutnevyte from UNIGE presented EXPANSE, a model for assessing cost-optimal and near-optimal energy scenarios. 


Lunch talk series I: CESAR-P tool

On Thursday, 7 October 2021, Kristina Orehounig from Empa presented CESAR-P, a tool for assessing the energy demand of buildings and even entire cities with EnergyPlus as the simulation core.


Lunch talk series I: SecMOD model

On Thursday, 23 September 2021, David Shu from ETH Zurich and Christiane Reinert from RWTH Aachen presented SecMOD, a model for the optimisation and life-cycle assessment of sector-coupled energy systems.


Lunch talk series: Calliope tool

On Thursday, 8 July 2021, Prof. Stefan Pfenninger from TU Delft presented Calliope, an open-source tool for modelling energy systems from urban districts to entire continents.


Lunch talk series I: Ehub tool

On Thursday, 1 July 2021, Andrew Bollinger from Empa presented Ehub, a tool for planning optimised energy supply solutions for buildings and districts. The spinoff Sympheny, a web application, was also demonstrated.


Lunch talk series I: ReMaP platform

On Thursday, 27 May 2021, Gianfranco Guidati from ETH Zurich presented ReMaP, platform for developing and validating new control concepts and components in a seamless process from a pure software environment – the Simulation framework (SFW) – to a hardware environment – the Control framework (CFW). 


Lunch talk series I: Nexus-e tool 

On Wednesday, 12 May 2021, Marius Schwarz from ETH Zurich presented Nexus-e, a tool for modelling interconnected energy systems.
