  1. Astrid Nieße is new speaker of the special interest group for Energy Informatics (GI FG WI-EINS)

    The special interest group on Energy Informatics of the German Informatics Society (Fachgruppe Energieinformatik der Gesellschaft für Informatik, GI) announced Astrid Nieße as new speaker for the upcoming next years. The GI, the German Informatics Society, is a non-profit association of highly dedicated computer science professionals in the German-speaking world. The GI comprises members from different professions, like computer science professionals from research and academia, IT professionals from public administration, business, and industry, educators teaching computer science in schools and apprentices and students aiming for a profession in IT. The special interest group on Energy Informatics is involved in many European and international activities in Energy Informatics and supports the most important conferences in this area, i.e. DACH+ conference on Energy Informatics and ACM e-Energy. Besides now serving as a speaker for the German special interest group, Astrid Nieße is also active in the ACM special interest group on energy informatics (ACM SIG e-Energy).

  2. New project granted: PYRATE

    We have been granted a new project by BMBF, the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research! For the next three years, we will work together with OFFIS - Institute for Information Technology and the University of Applied Sciences Bremen on a project dealing with polymorphic agents to analyze security in cyber-physical systems. This topic is highly relevant for critical infrastructures like energy systems, where we expect counterplayers to jeopardize security and safety to maximize their outcomes.


    Our work in the project PYRATE will be focused on the design of the software agents and multi-agent-system architecture.

  3. Congratulations, Paul Hendrik Tiemann, on winning the Helmut Schaefer Prize!

    We are pleased to announce that our colleague, Paul Hendrik Tiemann, has been awarded the Helmut Schaefer Prize for his Master’s thesis. On the occasion of its 70th anniversary, the Research Centre for Energy Economics (Forschungsgesellschaft für Energiewirtschaft mbH - FfE, München) awarded the Helmut Schaefer Prize for the first time as part of its Energy Days 2019.

    Helmut Schaefer Prize

    From a large number of submissions, the FfE selected three theses whose authors were to present their work results in a 5-minute pitch talk to the jury, made up of scientific representatives of the FfE. In his work, which was developed at the Institute for Electric Power Systems (IfES) at Leibniz Universität under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Richard Hanke-Rauschenbach and Dr.-Ing. Astrid Bensmann in cooperation with the VEA Federal Association of Energy Consumers (VEA), Paul Hendrik Tiemann investigated the economic efficiency of the use of battery storage systems to reduce grid charges for energy-intensive companies. He was able to determine which parameters have an influence on whether it is worthwhile for companies to invest in an electrical energy storage system.

  4. DFG Priority Program 1984 - General Meeting 2019 at Leibniz University Hannover

    This week, we were honoured to host our DFG focus program (DFG SPP 1984) with the yearly general meeting. Beside our project partners from all over Germany and Switzerland, we were happy to welcome Prof. Nießen from Siemens AG who gave an insight on the importance of cross-sector research from an industrial point of view.

    General meeting 2019 of DFG SPP1984

    16 projects within 5 teams presented the current status of their research for multi-modal and hybrid energy systems. In a program spread over three days, an interactive format had been chosen to facilitate cooperation among the involved researchers: Research team spokespersons gave an overview on connecting research topics, followed by flash-talks of PhD students. The poster sessions provided a proper foundation for a mutual knowledge exchange between projects and some deep scientific discourses. We organized this meeting with the institutes IfES and IAL at the Leibniz University Hannover. The general meeting finished with the mentioned industry talk and an introduction to LiFE2050 given by Dr. Volker Schöber. An excursion to the combined cycle power plant in Hannover Linden was guided by Mr. Michael Kranz, head of energy industrial sector Enercity AG. Thank you to everyone who made this meeting a success!

  5. PhD Workshop Energy Informatics 2019

    For the 10th time, the PhD workshop on Energy Informatics invites PhS students to present their research ideas and methodology. This workshop is organized by the Leibniz University of Hannover in cooperation with the Center for Secure Energy Informatics, Salzburg and supported by the German Informatics Society’s (Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)) Special Interest Group “Energy Informatics (Energieinformatik)“ (GI WI-EINS).
