Freiburg, Germany, 25-27 May, 2022

Deadline early bird fee: 15 April 2022


The 40th edition of the International Energy Workshop (IEW) will be hosted by the 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.


About Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE

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.


A (non-exclusive) list of conference topics is:

  • Reaching net-zero emissions: modelling the transition; sectoral modelling enhancements and coverage of all emissions in all sectors, sustainability and circular economy
  • Emerging markets and decarbonisation: modelling future energy services, synthetic fuels and resources analysis for the energy sector in transition
  • Managing power system transitions: addressing flexibility and system aspects for the integration of variable renewables; market design; integrated modelling looking at future energy systems and dealing with short-term issues
  • Technology insights: role of technologies in the energy transitions (e.g. CCUS and negative emission technologies, hydrogen, energy efficiency in demand and supply)
  • Cities and digitalisation: analysing the transition in cities and the impact of smart and digital technologies on the future energy system
  • Socioeconomic analysis of the energy transition: employment, skills, health, investments, consumer bills, integrating behaviour in energy models such as sufficiency

The Programme and the list of Keynote Speakers of IEW 2022 are available on the conference website.
