At this occasion, participants, mainly professionals from the industry, had the opportunity to attend talks about “Numerical Science and Energetic Efficiency.” Several companies working in the field demonstrated their software applications in Grenoble, France.
Artelys and its partners from the I-lab METIS exhibited their latest achievements on local energetic strategy simulation and optimization. These software tools help local authorities choose the best energetic investments (heating network, isolation and demand control, renewable energies, etc.) to reduce costs, lower polluting emissions (CO2, particles, etc.) and limit their financial exposure to fossil energy prices uncertainties. These tools are in development as part of the European project CitInES and are under testing in two Italian cities, Bologna and Cesena.
