AI in Energy, Buildings and Micro-Grids Workshop
The 1st Workshop on
AI in Energy, Buildings and Micro-Grids Workshop (ΑΙBMG)
Sustainable energy is hands down one of the biggest challenges of our times. As the EU sets its focus to reach its 2030 and 2050 goals, the role of artificial intelligence in the energy domain at building, district and micro-grid level becomes prevalent. The EU and member states are increasingly highlighting the need to complement IoT capacity (e.g. appliances and meters) with artificial intelligence capabilities (e.g. building management systems, proactive optimization, prescriptive maintenance, etc.). Moreover, moving away from the centralized production schema of the grid, novel approaches are needed for the optimal management / balancing of local (or remote aggregated net metering) generation and consumption rather than only reducing energy consumption for presuming communities.
The AIBMG Workshop aims to bring together interdisciplinary approaches that focus on the application of AI-driven solutions for increasing and improving energy efficiency of residential and tertiary buildings without compromising the occupants’ well-being. Either applied directly on the device, building or district management system; the proposed solutions should enable more energy efficient and sustainable operation of devices, buildings, districts and micro-grids. The workshop also welcomes cross-domain approaches that investigate how to support energy efficiency by exploiting decentralized, proactiveness, plug-n-play, etc. solutions.
