Energy&IT Group

Institute of Computer Technology – TU Wien

The real CO2 complex of global challenges, the increasing energy demand, and the increasing use of information technology (IT), lead to a fundamental change in energy systems towards interoperable, smart solutions based on scientific achievements. The Energy&IT Group is a research group at the Institute of Computer Technology at the TU Wien. We work in research projects directly at the intersection of the two relevant domains in the emerging energy system, on the one hand power engineering and on the other hand information and communication technology (ICT), whereby  we repeatedly develop the infrastructure in both areas in projects, but are also accustomed to taking over organizational tasks.

Through more than 40 successfully completed projects, we have gained experience in all areas of smart grid applications, smart grid operation, e-mobility, building to grid, demand side management, and many more, but also more “abstract” topics of energy informatics such as smart gird architectures, participation in the European Technology & Innovation Platforms Working Group on Digitization of the Electricity System and Customer Participation (ETIP-SNET WG4) and security and privacy in future, smart energy systems. Competencies of specific technologies are covered in our team, ranging from chip development, FPGAs, sensors, decentralized control and regulation, (multi-)agent systems to data collection and evaluation, machine learning, big data, visualization, services and energy services, to Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, resilience, general Artificial Intelligence, and global technologies such as blockchain and scattered control mechanisms of distributed energy resources.
