The 40th edition of the International Energy Workshop (IEW) will be hosted by Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, Germany, on 25-27 May, 2022.
The IEW is a leading conference for the international energy modelling community. In a world of environmental and economic constraints, energy modelling is an increasingly important tool for addressing the complexity of energy planning and policy making. The IEW provides a venue for scholars and researchers to compare modelling tools, to discuss modelling advances for emerging energy sector issues, and to observe new trends in the global energy sector.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, with a staff of more than 1300, is the largest solar energy research institute in Europe. Fraunhofer ISE is committed to promoting sustainable, economic, safe and socially just energy supply systems based on renewable energy. Focusing on energy efficiency, energy conversion, energy distribution and energy storage, the Institute develops materials, components, systems and processes and provides system analysis for local, national and international energy systems. One particular feature of Fraunhofer ISE is its excellent technical infrastructure and its capability to provide comprehensive system analysis based on the use of energy system models.
