ACM e-Energy 2018 will have an exciting spread of four workshops. We invite everyone to consider submitting a paper and/or attending a workshop! The workshops, dates, and workshop chairs are listed below. The calls for workshop papers, deadlines, detailed descriptions, and links to the workshop websites will be added soon.


7th International Workshop on Energy-Efficient Data Centres (E2DC) – Full day – FZI Main Building – Room Tokyo

E2DC logo
The main goal of the E2DC 2018 workshop is to study innovative methods to improve efficiency and sustainability of data centres - important and ever growing source of energy consumption. E2DC concentrates on a broader context of data centre ecosystem by investigation of interactions with other data centres, smart cities and smart grids. Hence, the workshop discusses topics such as the use of renewable energy, optimisation of cooling and heat re-use, demand response techniques, federation of distributed data centres and many more. This year, in addition to these general workshop topics, we would like to discuss the future trends of data centre development, especially their architectures and location. We would like to discuss whether a majority of data centres will be concentrated in large colocation data centres and public clouds or if (and how) smaller systems can be integrated with existing infrastructure (e.g. buildings, homes, wind power plants, etc.).

3rd Workshop on Electric Vehicle Systems, Data, and Applications (EV-Sys) – Full day – FZI Main Building – Room New York

EV-Sys will be a full-day workshop, examining the latest development of areas that are expected to play a major role towards enhancing EV performance. Hence the main focus of the workshop will be based on methodological concepts through the improvement of the battery management system (BMS), the extensive use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to increase energy efficiency and thus the range of the vehicle, the revision of the electric and electronic architecture to reduce complexity and the number of components and interconnections, whilst improving energy efficiency, functionality and modularity and the development of tools and networks to enable the interoperable charging and services provision to owners of EVs. By sharing and exchanging the practical knowledge of electric vehicles, we hope to bolster further synergy and collaborations for a wide range of electric vehicle research in practice.

1st International Workshop on Energy Market Engineering – Full day – FZI HoLL Building – Room Hollywood

The energy landscape is undergoing several fundamental changes. Decentralized and intermittent generation from renewable energy carriers is replacing the controllable fossil fuel energy sources. Furthermore, micro-grids advocate a semi-distributed infrastructure as opposed to the conventional centralized energy systems. Finally, increasing the number of electric vehicles, and the replacement of passive consumers with active prosumers requires new energy trading platforms.
These trends create major challenges to electricity markets. Introducing new ways of providing flexibility, emergence of new concepts such as vehicle to the grid, redefining energy/power unit commitments, and creating local electricity markets. These are some examples of how new market designs can accommodate these changes efficiently.

1st International Workshop on Energy Data and Analytics – Full day – FZI HoLL Building – Event Hall

EDA aims at bringing together experts on data management and analytics on the one hand and as well as those on energy systems on the other hand, be they from academia, be they from industry, be they from related organizations or from administration. The design of future energy systems that are efficient, ecologically friendly, robust and scalable is a core concern of our societies. Further, in recent years there has been a major shift towards a data-oriented perspective on system design. In the context of energy systems, a broad variety of data, often huge in volume, is available. For instance, each smart meter generates data streams, which are often recorded and archived. Or think of simulations of energy systems where the simulation outcomes cannot be analyzed by hand any more. The questions on how such data can be captured and processed, and what can be learned from it are fundamentally important. This includes predictions of various kinds of supply and demand, predictive maintenance of energy infrastructures, the processing of energy-consumption data in a way that respects the privacy of the individuals involved as well as business secrets.
