The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, DBLP, Semantic Scholar, EI and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Creating so-called “urban energy islands” is based on the rationale that if every community generates the energy it needs locally and sustainably, the global issue of climate change can partially be solved locally.  Consequently, an urban energy island is a geographically delineated district that aims at achieving a high level of energy self-sufficiency while offering energy services to external grids when needed. 

In a trans-disciplinary approach, the EU Horizon 2020 research project RENergetic tackles this task by optimizing the generation and composition of energy supply across the energy sectors electricity (including electric vehicles) and heat, and distributing it efficiently. On top of this, energy demand is adapted to available local supply as much as possible, building on the acceptance or even the active support of the inhabitants of the energy island. 

As the project lifetime is in its last term, the outcome should be presented to a wider public and discussed with experts working in related areas.
