Conference: SESWA 2017

The Smart Energy Systems Week Austria Conference, formerly known as „Smart Grids Week“ encapsulated this year a greater field of topics in the domains of energy-subsystems and infrastructures (grids, buildings, traffic system) and their interaction (linking sectors, building to grid, vehicle to grid, etc.) was held in the Messe Congress in Graz.
About 300 national and international experts got together, including speakers from Canada. The topics of the conference have been interesting as well as pioneering for the research in Austria.

The Energy & IT group was present on site and presented poster to the ongoing projects in IniGrid, KORE, RASSA, SpinOFF, eNDUSTRIE 4.0. Our presence was strengthened by our information booth, where details for teaching and courses of studies of the TU Wien were available.

The coffee breaks and the sumptuous buffet formed the appropriate atmosphere to create new contacts in the domains of Power-To-Gas and helped to create concept ideas for new projects.
The project group ended the conference days with a visit at the Exit the Room – Graz games. Of course, they solved the riddles successfully!
