In preparation: Resilience of Energy Systems and Energy Security


Bonn, February 14th – 15th 2018


Current transformations of the European energy system have significant implications for energy infrastructures. The European energy infrastructure is vulnerable to numerous strategic risks, such as cyber-attacks and chokepoints in grid architecture. The “Energy Union” could help to counter these challenges on the EU level, in order to increase energy security and resilience. However, improvements also depend on the EU-member states’ perceptions of energy security. They can diverge, not only between but also within states. Thus, modelling and measuring energy security and the resilience of critical energy infrastructures is essential.
Electricity is emerging as the key feature of the transforming energy system, rendering critical energy infrastructures even more integral to European energy security. Securing electricity supply comes with particular risks, such as cascading effects. To cope with the system’s complexity, its management is increasingly digitalized. The concepts of energy security and resilience offer an approach to identify and assess emerging challenges to electricity supply infrastructures and to conceptualize visions of the future energy system. Such visions need to consider questions of governance and regulation, especially with regard to risks emanating from cyber space.
The IEK-STE high-level seminar on “Resilience of energy systems and energy security” will discuss these issues on two consecutive days. On the first day, the session “Challenges in European energy security and resilience” will define European energy security via its political, sociological and methodological premises. On the second day, the specific challenges to electricity supply infrastructures will be discussed in the second and final session, “Challenges in electricity supply security and resilience”.
Further information will be available soon.

Scenarios – Methods and Meanings


September 12, 2017, Universitätsclub Bonn e.V., Bonn, Germany


Scenarios are a common tool for decision support in industry and politics. However, scenarios are facing various challenges nowadays ranging from transparency issues across embedding scenarios into their bigger context to the interpretation of scenario results. The high-level seminar serves as a platform to discuss recent developments in this field – specifically population and energy scenarios, the meaning and use of scenarios as well as the role of participatory modelling.

International School on Energy Systems (ISES)


September 3-8, 2017, Kloster Seeon, Bavaria, Germany.


ISES, hosted by Forschungszentrum Jülich (partners HITEC-Helmholtz Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training in Energy and Climate Research, University of Technology Sydney, Universität Bonn) is designed for young researchers and young professionals in the fields of energy economics, energy technologies, political and social science and related disciplines who are interested to discuss the transformation of energy systems and gain interdisciplinary insight. The goal of the school is to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges which concern today´s and future energy systems as well as the necessity to manage transformation processes towards sustainability.
The energy infrastructure of a country provides a fundamental means for societal development and economic growth. Energy systems comprise the technologies required for the conversion of primary energy carriers to final energy, meeting the demand of society and economy. Over the past century, the trade of fossil fuels has become a backbone of the global economy. However, environmental pollution, climate change, and resource depletion force societies to reassess their energy choices. Corresponding political decision making in accordance with goals like sustainable development and the mitigation of climate change have led to different approaches of transforming the unsustainable energy systems of today into sustainable energy systems for the future. In order to understand the characteristics of future energy systems and the obstacles and drivers of transformation processes, multidisciplinary expertise as well as inter- and transdisciplinary approaches are required that are not yet covered by standard academic curricula.

Management of Natural Resources from the Perspective of Sustainable Development.


January 12, 2017, Bonner Akademie für Forschung und Lehre praktischer Politik (BAPP) GmbH, Bonn, Germany.


Throughout history, humanity has rarely been able to achieve an equitable allocation and distribution of limited natural resources. In this process, the provision of and access to energy has continuously played a significant role. Beginning with von Carlowitz in the early 18th century, renewed by the Club of Rome and the Brundtland Commission, the call for sustainable development has manifested itself and finally lead to the implementation of the UN-SDGs in 2015. The high-level seminar serves as a platform to discuss recent developments in this field – specifically energy research, the role of planetary resource boundaries, the moral obligation for integrated resource management, as well as the challenges of sustainable civilization.

Final workshop NET-ELAN
On 23 February 2012, the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Systems Research and Technology Evaluation (IEK-STE) is organizing a workshop together with its cooperation partners
- Ford Forschungszentrum Aachen GmbH,
- Technische Universität Berlin – Department of Land and Sea Transport Systems – Automotive Engineering Division,
- Technische Universität Berlin – School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science – Chair of Sustainable Electric Networks and Sources of Energy,
- Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH, and
- Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart

to discuss the results of the research project “Grid integration of electrified drive systems into existing and future energy supply structures” (or NET-ELAN for short) funded by BMWi.

The project aims to answer key questions regarding the development of electromobility in Germany based on technical and energy economy models:
• What are the technical opportunities and restrictions in terms of the integration of electric vehicles into the electricity supply grid?
• What is the potential for an efficient integration of intermittent energy sources (such as wind energy)?
• What impact does the use of electric vehicles have on electricity consumption?
• What are the resulting emissions (environmental impacts)?
• What economic framework conditions have to be considered?

The workshop aims to present project results and discuss them with experts specializing in different fields, as well as to prepare future research and development tasks with a view to the grid integration of electric vehicles. More information on the project and workshop is available at www.net-elan.de.

Workshop on CCS acceptance research in Germany
On 25 January 2012, IEK-STE is organizing a workshop on CCS acceptance research in Germany in cooperation with the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, focussing on current results, practical relevance and perspectives. The aim is to present relevant scientific approaches and current research results providing information on factors and processes for CCS acceptance in Germany that could be important. The ensuing panel discussion will focus on the practical implementation of the research results and their transferability to other technology fields.
The workshop is aimed at interested experts from politics, administration, economy and civil society/NGOs. In an open dialogue with all those involved, the workshop will focus on drawing conclusions on aspects to be considered by politics and industry when implementing large-scale CCS projects. In addition, the need for further research into the acceptance of CCS and other large-scale energy technology projects will also be identified.
More details on the programme: Acceptance research workshop
The event will take place in the auditorium of the Wuppertal Institute and is free of charge. However, the number of participants is limited. Please register online for the conference by 13 January 2012.
