Time: Thursday 20 October, 2020, 2.00-5.00 pm (CET)
Venue: Online, details to be announced
This seminar is organized by the Swedish Energy Agency as a part of the Swedish involvement in one of the technology collaboration programmes (TCP) affiliated to the International Energy Agency: Industrial Energy-Related Technologies and Systems (IETS TCP). An international collaboration in the area digitalization and AI for energy efficiency and GHG mitigation in industry has recently started in the IETS TCP.
Digitalization and AI is one of the important areas for achieving deep decarbonization in industry. Due to the breadth of this area, a work has started within the IETS TCP to identify the part of it, which is most relevant for energy efficiency and GHG mitigation. In that work also specific tasks of highest importance to start a further international collaboration in have been identified. These are:
- Methods and Applications of Digital Twins
- Lessons Learned and Created Values by Digitalization
- Digitalization Implementation Roadmaps
In this collaboration, groups from a big number of countries will participate and it will be led by National Resources and Ecole Polytechnique, Montreal in Canada. The collaboration will be mainly in the form of networking between participating groups and sharing of experiences and results. Academia, institutes and industry will be involved in the collaboration.
In the webinar, the leaders from Canada will present work done so far and further plans, Swedish experts will present ongoing and planned projects in Sweden, and, finally, there will be a discussion about the different tasks and a possible Swedish participation.
Target groups for the webinar are representatives from industry, universities, institutes and regional and governmental authorities.
The aims of the seminar are to increase the knowledge in Sweden in this area, to create a network in Sweden and discuss the Swedish contribution in the international collaboration as well as to discuss need for further work.
There is no fee for the webinar. A full programme will be distributed shortly.
