The focus of the workshop is on energy efficiency as a major contributor to the green economy. Data shows that alternative sources alone are insufficient to meet the increasing energy demand. Higher efficiency is therefore required to address the energy problem and to reduce the carbon footprint resulting in better environmental conditions. Many new initiatives for energy efficiency are afoot worldwide. The Workshop will be a forum where various initiatives are discussed, results presented and open problems introduced. Emphasis will be on addressing the problem from a system standpoint.
The meeting is supported by the COMBEST European Project, the Artist Design NoE, the Fondazione Bruno Kessler, the University of Trento and the Autonomous Province of Trento.
