CERN/ERF/ESS Workshop "Energy for Sustainable Science at Research Infrastructures"

Date: 29/30 October 2015
Location: DESY Hamburg

Volatile energy costs, a tight budget climate and increasing environmental concerns are all inciting large-scale research facilities across the globe to devise mid- and long-term strategies for sustainable developments at their research infrastructures, including the aim for reliable, affordable and carbon-neutral energy supplies.

This workshop will bring together international sustainability experts, stakeholders and representatives from research facilities and future research infrastructure projects all over the world in order to identify the challenges, best practices and policies to develop and implement sustainable solutions at research infrastructures. This includes the increase of energy efficiencies, energy system optimizations, storage and savings, implementation and management issues as well as the review of challenges represented by potential future technological solutions and the tools for effective collaboration.

This workshop is the third event in the series “Energy for Sustainable Science at Research Infrastructures” that is organized by ERF, CERN and ESS holding biennial workshops at various places. The first workshop was held at Lund, Sweden on 13/14 October 2011, the second one at CERN on 23-25 October 2013. DESY will host the third workshop in this series in cooperation with EuCARD.
