Deadline Extended: Register for the 2nd SmartCoDe Expert Cooperation Workshop on Energy Efficiency in Buildings

(PresseBox) (Hannover, ) We cordially invite you to join us for the " />2nd SmartCoDe Open Expert Cooperation Workshop ( on October 12, 2011 at the Hotel Westbahnhof in Vienna, Austria. The workshop will discuss the status of the SmartCoDe project, which is developing technology critical to accelerating the shift from traditional energy sources to renewable energy sources. The technology will enable us to:

Manage the volatility and unpredictability inherent to almost all major renewable energy sources.
Match our future energy consumption to the available supply of (renewable) energy, and not vice versa as it is today.

The project has already delivered test-bed prototypes. For instance, there is a board-level prototype of the SmartCoDe chip. The chip will enable communications and control between energy-using products (EuPs) and an energy management unit (EMU), enabling the latter to control the EuPs according to predefined requirements. Also, an initial version of the EMU software has been developed. And we have established the project's demonstrator in a building in Austria (you can view the location " />via webcam) (

In this workshop, the project partners will be joined by leading academics in the fields of energy forecasting, management and storage. Further, the EU FP7 project " />S4EeB ( will co-locate its kick-off meeting with us and will present its goals to the SmartCoDe community. As a result the SmartCoDe Workshop registration deadline has been extended to Sept. 30, 2011.
