Symposium on the topic of intelligent energy within the framework of the RENEXPO 2010 the urban energy supply of the future faces major challenges: security of supply, efficiency and cost-saving consumption and reduction of CO2 emissions are only a few tags that deal with municipal utilities. The growing share of renewable energies also requires the integration of decentralised power generation facilities. Intelligent systems that match a variable energy generation and flexible consumption and allow a targeted monitoring and controlling are required. Intelligent energy is a complex issue, which is currently still in the development phase: it includes the network and load management, storage capacities, incorporating new concepts of mobility, two-way consultation between consumers and utilities, as well as the intelligent use of energy in buildings. “The Conference city of the future”, which on October 8, 2010 on the RENEXPO, international trade fair for renewable energies and energy efficient construction and renovation, in the exhibition center of Augsburg held, sets itself apart with these theme areas.
It gives an overview of the possibilities of urban energy supply of the future, presents visions, model concepts, existing and future technologies. So Ludwig enters Karg, the b.a.u.m. Consult GmbH, Director of research for the E-energy program of the Federal Ministry of Economics and technology challenges and solution approaches for a functional and secure Internet of energy. Because following Andreas Kiessling, introduces MVV Energie AG, first practical experience from the E-energy model city of Mannheim. Other topics cover grids metering, building automation and E-mobility smart, smart. Also on the complex problems, which is the change in the power network, which today is limited to a few large power plants and should in the future are fed from countless decentralized generation units, the lectures and provide a comprehensive insight into the different key aspects of intelligent infrastructure of the future. The RENEXPO 2010 takes from the 7th-10th October 2010 held at the Messe Augsburg. Thursday to Saturday from 09 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 10 h until 17 h open.
