Part I – Energy Systems Analysis
Part II – Advanced Energy Technologies
Renewable energies play an increasing role in the Japanese and German energy supply systems. However, the full potential of collaboration between Japan and Germany in this field has not been systematically explored. The goal of the “German-Japanese Workshop on Renewable Energies” is to provide a platform for exchange between researchers from academia and industry as well as policy makers, and to identify research needs and prospective joint projects in the area of renewable energy technologies and systems. The event will consist of the two individual workshops which can be attended either separately or together.
Part I – Energy Systems Analysis, 5-6 July 2017
This workshop is devoted to the analysis of energy systems and energy scenarios on the regional, national and international scale as well as on the impact of the conclusions on the energy policy of Japan, Germany and more broadly, on Asia and Europe. Topics include but are not limited to the (1) assessment of renewable energy technology potentials, (2) energy storage and load balancing technologies, (3) development of energy supply scenarios, (4) modelling of the energy system, (5) application of energy system models, (6) renewable energy economics, market integration and market design, (7) future research questions of energy system analysis. Particular emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of methods for ensuring and enhancing the robustness and quality of model-based energy systems analysis and scenario development. Another focus of the workshop will be on the refinancing of investments into renewable energy technologies as well as on demand oriented feed-in and market integration of intermittent power sources.
Part II – Advanced Energy Technologies, 6-7 July 2017
This workshop discusses the contribution of advanced energy technologies to the balancing of renewable energy fluctuations. Topics include but are not limited to (1) thermal energy storage technologies, (2) fuel cell technologies, (3) battery technologies, and (4) synthetic liquid fuels produced from renewable electricity. Special attention will be given to the future role of ammonia as energy carrier. Furthermore, the workshop will address recent advancements in the development of Wind Powered Thermal Energy Systems (WTES), which refers to a new technology that involves direct transformation of wind energy into thermal energy without intermediate electric generators.
The workshop is held at the DLR-Campus in Stuttgart-Vaihingen. It is located halfway between the city centre and the airport, and can be reached by metro service (station
Universität). For further information, please follow http://www.dlr.de/tt/en/Portaldata/41/Resources/dokumente/anfahrt/stuttgart/Anfahrt-ST-englisch.pdf
Abstract Submission and Contact
We encourage you to submit your abstract addressing any of the workshop topics until May 12th, 2017. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words and must include the names and affiliations of all authors. Submissions and presentations have to be submitted and delivered in English language. You are requested to submit your abstract as doc or pdf file by email to Mr. Hans Christian Gils (firstname.lastname@example.org) for part I and Mr. Toru Okazaki (email@example.com) for part II. Notification about acceptance of abstracts will be provided before May 15th, 2017.
