6th International Conference on Smart Energy Systems

The 6th International Conference on Smart Energy Systems took place on 6-7 October 2020. Due to COVID-19 pandemic situation, the conference was no longer hold in Aalborg, Denmark. Therefore participants met exclusively online.

CHESTER project hosted a presentation in the second panel ‘Smart energy infrastructure and storage options. Our partner, PlanEnergiĀ  presented a lecture on the topic ‘Combined heat andĀ  power storage: the feasibility in a national renewable energy system context’.

The full agenda can be found here: Online programme.

The aim of the conference was to establish a venue for presenting and discussing scientific findings and industrial experiences related to the subject of Smart Energy Systems based on renewable energy, 4th Generation District Heating Technologies and Systems (4GDH), electrification of heating and transportation sectors, electro fuels and energy efficiency.

The 6th conference in the series cemented it as a main venue for presentations and fruitful debates on subjects that are pertinent to the development and implementation of smart energy systems to fulfill national and international objectives.
