CERN / ERF / ESS Workshop III
"Energy for Sustainable Science at Research Infrastructures"
DESY Hamburg, 29-30 October 2015
Volatile energy costs, a tight budget climate and increasing environmental concerns are all inciting large-scale research facilities across the globe to devise mid- and long-term strategies for sustainable developments at their research infrastructures, including the aim for reliable, affordable and carbon-neutral energy supplies.
This workshop will bring together international sustainability experts, stakeholders and representatives from research facilities and future research infrastructure projects all over the world in order to identify the challenges, best practices and policies to develop and implement sustainable solutions at research infrastructures. This includes the increase of energy efficiencies, energy system optimizations, storage and savings, implementation and management issues as well as the review of challenges represented by potential future technological solutions and the tools for effective collaboration.
The workshop will be held at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY in Hamburg which is one of the world's leading accelerator centres and a member of the Helmholtz Association. DESY develops, builds and operates large particle accelerators used to investigate the structure of matter. DESY offers a broad research spectrum of international standing focusing on three main areas: accelerator development, construction and operation; photon science; particle and astroparticle physics.
The workshop plenary talks will be held in the main DESY auditorium (building 05). The parallel sessions are held in seminar room 1a and seminar rooms 4a and 4b located in building 1. All rooms are equipped with beamer, PC and other technical equipment. Coffee during the breaks will be served in the foyer of the auditorium. Lunch will be taken in the DESY canteen. At the registration we will provide you with lunch vouchers. The workshop dinner on Thursday, 29 October, starts at 19:30 and will take place in the DESY canteen.
