Communication Technology and Data Analytics for Future Energy Systems

The design of energy systems that can cope with the intermittency of renewable energy sources as well as the lack of flexibility of demand is a crucial societal concern. Recently, several new technologies, such as power-to-heat systems and electrical vehicles, have become ubiquitous, making energy system design even more complex. The new discipline of Energy Informatics (EI) plays a central role in providing a scientific basis for the design of complex energy systems. In addition to exploring technologies for reducing the overall energy demand, it addresses (1) providing a higher extent of consumer flexibility so that more sustainable and locally generated energy is used, (2) increasing the resilience of energy generation and (3) improving the efficiency of new energy systems. It also provides methodologies and technologies to extract and manage information from energy systems. Furthermore, it offers communication and information-processing principles to operate energy systems securely.

The Summer School entitled “Communication Technology and Data Analytics for Future Energy Systems” focuses on providing a strong foundation in the principles of Energy Informatics, with a focus on communication technology, data management, and analytics. The summer school will be a venue for graduate students, researchers and practitioners to learn about and contribute to this field.


Primary language for the Summer school will be English, sufficient language skills are expected for participation. Some talks may be offered in German. The number of participants for the summer school is limited and participants are selected through an application process. Applications are accepted until June 2nd, 2017.

If you have any questions regarding the application or encounter any kind of problem, please feel free to contact us via

Participation Fee

The participation fee for the Summer School is €180. The participation fee includes (from Monday September 11th through Friday September 15th2017):

  • Participation in talks, workshops and practical sessions
  • Access to summer school materials
  • Lunch and coffee breaks
  • Participation in the Summer School dinner (held on one evening only)

The participation fee does not include travel cost, local transportation fares or any accommodation expenses.


The summer school will feature a mixture of theoretical and practical sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Monday will open with a keynote and theoretical sessions, while Friday will start with practical sessions and conclude the event with an end note. Several poster sessions will give participants opportunities to talk about their own research and exchange ideas and feedback with other researchers in their field. This exchange can of course be continued in a social event (conference dinner).
