International Conference on Energy Systems Integration

Golden, Colorado, United States (December 5–6, 2017)

Join us for iiESI's first International Conference on Energy Systems Integration at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado on December 5–6, 2017.

This year's event will focus on the theme "Infrastructure for an Integrated Energy System," and will feature thought leaders from across the globe on topics that cover energy infrastructure as well as operational and market issues in the developed and developing world.

Conference Overview

Energy systems integration is the process of coordinating the operation and planning of energy systems across multiple pathways and/or geographical scales to deliver reliable, cost-effective energy services with minimal impact on the environment. The goal of this event is to address such pathways—including electricity, thermal energy, and fuels—from engineering, scientific, policy, regulatory, market, and behavioral perspectives. Speakers will represent a balance of industry, academia, and policy.

Participating organizations include the World Energy Council, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Center for Energy Systems Integration (CESI), the European Energy Research Alliance Joint Programme (EEERA JP) and the Joint Research Centre - European Commission (JRC).
