Energy efficiency

R&D activities in the field of intelligent energy management aim at optimizing resources in order to minimize environmental impact. The development of environmentally friendly technologies and energy-saving methods is one of the key challenges for scientists and engineers. The implementation of green and energy-saving technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution is one of the European Union’s research priorities. Therefore, work on energy-efficient ICTs focuses, on the one hand, on the use of energy-efficient ICT equipment, the energy efficiency of applications, resource management, but also on the use of ICTs for modeling and simulation of heating and cooling processes, energy management in homes and offices or smart energy networks.
