    Aims

    This WG will have the specific objective of using AI for improving the management of energy systems and providing sustainability with smart cities, smart facilities, smart buildings, smart transportation and smart houses. Decision support systems, planning and optimization in the above-mentioned subjects require understanding of related systems, modelling, applying appropriate AI techniques including machine learning algorithms and handling temporary aspects of big data.

    Energy generation, transmission, distribution, sales and consumption need separated focus with the energy mix optimization, distributed approaches, renewable energies with storage. Any short-term, mid-term and long-term forecasting, optimization models, trend foresights and prescriptions based on scenarios are studied in the energy world and the smart systems for sustainability. This group will bring together researchers and practitioners inventing and experimenting the various artificial intelligence techniques for energy (traditional and renewable) lifecycle.

    The ultimate goal of the group is to bring a contribution to sustainable life. The founding members ambition in improvement and expansion of Energy Sustainability and Climate Change (ESCC) conferences.

    Scope

    Intelligence in energy is a very important issue for energy management, production and consumption. To face climate change, the attitudes of all involved actors have to evolve.

    We would like to promote the wise use of energy and intelligent techniques to manage it, an alternative way of considering energy from various perspectives and as a system component of our natural ecosystems.
