The SCCER-SoE Annual Conference 2019 presents insights into our research highlights, puts a strong emphasis on the project posters, and offers many opportunities for personal exchange.

We will start the first day with the status of the energy law implementation and the current state of work in the SCCER-SoE. The afternoon is dedicated to highlights of the future supply of energy regarding risk, social acceptance, global observation and energy system simulation and modelling.

On the second day two sessions for hydropower and geo-energy will run in parallel. The sessions have the same objectives: In the morning, we will focus on the research highlights and in the afternoon, we will meet with stakeholders and customers for knowledge and technology transfer workshops.
