Past events


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.


Event: ReMaP current status and outlook

The event gave an overview of the current status and future outlook of the “Renewable Management and Real-Time Control Platform” (ReMaP) project. More information available on:
The interplay between the distribution network, buildings and mobility as well as different technologies for generating, converting and storing energy were presented. Participants also had the opportunity to visit the Energy System Integration (ESI) platform at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI).


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.


PATHFNDR kick-off

On Monday, 31 May 2021, the PATHFNDR project successfully kicked-off. Approximately 60 participants from the public and private sectors attended the virtual event. The project team presented the project objectives, expected outcomes and the involved stakeholders.


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.
