In this webinar jointly organised by Fraunhofer ISI (Germany) and Association negaWatt (France) in the frame of the Climate Recon project, we explored the role of breakthrough innovations and systemic change for the decarbonisation of the EU's industry sector.
In a joint research project, researchers from ITRI and Fraunhofer ISI used the FORECAST model to assess energy saving opportunities and costs in Taiwan’s cement industry. The cement industry is the second most energy-intensive sector in Taiwan.
In a recently published study for the European Commission, the models FORECAST and INVERT/EE-lab were used for a detailed profiling of the energy demand for heating and cooling in industry, services and the residential sector. …
A team consisting of researchers from Fraunhofer ISI and Oeko-Institut has developed model-based climate mitigation scenarios for Germany.
The 17th and 18th of February 2016, the FORECAST / eLOAD team was represented by two colleagues at the e-world in Essen, Germany
In a recently published Communication the European Commission proposes an EU heating and cooling strategy that aims to reduce the high share of fossil fuels which makes up about 75% of primary energy demand in the European heating and cooling sector.
Together with a team from the Catholique University of Rio de Janeiro, we used the FORECAST and eLOAD models to assess the future evolution of electricity demand in Brazil up to the year 2050. After two years of data collection, model calibration and training, the one-week workshop marked a major milestone: designing scenarios for the residential, services and industry sectors in Brazil.
The 5th and 6th of November, the annual FORECAST – eLOAD workshop has taken place in Beuggen, Germany. The main focus of the two days retreat was with model development and strategy planning.
In the study "Medium-term forecast of electricity supplied to final consumers in Germany in the calendar years 2016 to 2020" the Fraunhofer ISI determined the final consumption for 2016 across which the cost of refinancing renewable energies will be split in Germany.
The eLOAD model was recently used to assess the evolution of hourly load curves in Germany and Great Britain until the year 2050. The same exercise was performed by the DESSTinEE model to benchmark the results from eLOAD. Both models come to very similar conclusions.
ProgRESsHEAT aims at assisting local, regional, national and EU political leaders in developing policy and strategies to ensure a quick and efficient deployment of renewable energies in the heating and cooling sector.
