The second Training Module of the CI-NERGY Initial Training Network Project will take place from 09 - 17 October 2014 in Vienna, hosted by partners AIT (AIT Austrian Institute of Technology) and Wien Energie, in cooperation with the associated partners Vienna University of Technology (TUW) and City of Vienna. The Training Module, ‘Energy Technology & Systems’, will highlight the City of Vienna Case Study, delving into the city’s energy planning methodology, infrastructure, database systems, performance monitoring and policies, with representatives from the City’s planning and energy departments in attendance. Theoretical seminars in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and 3D city modelling, district energy, electrical appliance modelling, and data management will be held, in addition to basic research skills training. The CI-NERGY Fellows, eleven Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and two Experienced Researchers (ERs), shall also present their research hypotheses, which address integrated energy concepts based on geographic spatial and energy data, utilizing the associated partner cities of Canton of Geneva and City of Vienna, with their very ambitious sustainability goals, as case studies.
