Field Trips: Are Full for 2023

Thursday, June 15 from 2:00pm – 3:30pm two field trips will be available to choose from. The maximum occupancy of each tour is 20 people. Space is limited and will be allotted on a first come first serve basis. The tours are free however attendees will need to find their own transportation to and from the locations.

Flatiron Campus: The Flatirons Campus tour is a high-level overview of the Flatirons Campus that highlights the nation’s premier research and development facility for wind energy, waterpower, and grid integration.

RSF/ESIF (tour corridor and hydrogen station): This is a high-level overview of our South Table Mountain (STM) campus. This tour provides an opportunity to learn about the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) research and see how we are demonstrating clean energy technologies, reducing waste, and eliminating atmospheric pollution. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the Research Support Facility (RSF) and the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF). The RSF incorporates the best energy efficiency and environmental performance technologies and practices in a large-scale commercial office building. Many of the technologies and strategies used in the RSF are a direct result of NREL’s energy efficiency and renewable energy efforts. ESIF is the United States’ premier lab focused on energy systems research, development, and demonstration. This facility accelerates the efficient transition to future energy systems that are secure, resilient, reliable, affordable, and clean.

Additional Workshops and Meetings

The next IEA-ETSAP workshop will take place during the same week as IEW 2023, on 15th – 16th June 2023 in Golden, Colorado, USA.:

Participation in the ETSAP workshop is open to all interested in energy systems modelling and free to attend. There is also an option for presentations – if you want to present your work, please include the presentation title and abstract when you register and we will consider including your contribution in our program. Please note the deadline for the submission of abstracts for presentations in the workshop is the 28th of April 2023 The program and presentations from previous workshops are available at the ETSAP webpage: Workshops (iea-etsap.org).

ETSAP is a Technology Collaboration Program of the International Energy Agency (IEA). ETSAP functions as a consortium of member country teams and invited teams that actively cooperate to establish, maintain, and expand energy-economy-environment-engineering modelling capability. Its backbone consists of a common methodology, mainly based on the MARKAL/TIMES family of models, permitting the compilation of long-term energy scenarios and in-depth national, multi-country, and global energy and environmental scenario analyses.

IRENA side event: Planning for the renewable future: electricity demand profiles in the clean energy transition

Tuesday 13 June, Friedhoff Hall, Green Center 12:15-13:45 Lunch

The IRENA side event on the first day of IEW addresses electricity demand profiles in the clean energy transition. The event aims to gather modelling experts to better understand emerging complexities regarding the representation of electricity demand profiles in long-term modelling, as a result of new developments in sector-coupling and increased demand-side flexibility. The discussion during the event will act as valuable input to the framing and contents of IRENA’s next thematic installment of the Planning for the Renewable Future series.
