The organisers of the Winter School on Energy Scenarios cordially invite PhD students and other young researchers to discuss current challenges of how to shape and describe future energy systems.
30th January - 03rd Februar 2017
Kurhaus Trifels, Annweiler am Trifels
The ESS Winter School is an advanced, interdisciplinary and interactive course for PhD students who undertake theoretical or applied research on energy scenarios and scientific energy policy-advice.
During the five days of the school students will explore both theoretical and practical aspects of how scenarios may shape and describe future energy systems. Throughout the whole week students will discuss whether theoretical insights can be helpful in practical contexts.
In particular, the ESS Winter school will address the integration of decentralized and renewable energies in context of energy scenarios, the impact that scenarios may have on policy orientation and society, and theoretical methodologies of multi-criteria and quality criteria assessment for energy scenarios. Besides, the school will provide opportunity for PhD students to increase their network connections; to discuss their own research and to learn from experts in field of energy scenarios.
