Workshop in Doha, 12 october, at HEC Tornado Tower

Modeling Transition to Energy Sustainability in Smart Cities: Application to Qatar

ORDECSYS, HEC Paris and FIKRA Research and Policy are organizing a workshop at the occasion of the end of the project Modeling transition to energy sustainability in smart cities.  

The workshop will be held at HEC in Doha, Tornado Tower,

Wednesday october 12

9h30 to 11h30.

Room 1521, 15th floor.

Abstract

The workshop will deal with the modeling of the evolution of the regional energy system of Qatar, over a time horizon of 35 years or more, taking into account the possible transition toward a smart city paradigm of the Doha region and the probable climate regime that will result from COP21 and the next rounds of international climate negotiations. The impact on the energy system of a transition toward smart city could take many forms that are examined to identify what kind of arbitrage exists between different alternatives over the long term. Typically, the model, that has been developed, could be used to compare the impacts of different energy policies especially over the power system, the energy import/export mix and the carbon emission.

 

Schedule

9:30 - 10:10:  Modeling a regional energy system in a smart city & low emissions perspective: the example of Qatar (Download presentation and draft paper).

10:10 - 10:30: Hands-on session: how to use the model to explore new scenarios.

10:30 - 10:45: Coffe break. 

10:45 - 11:15: New research perpectives related to global energy flows with smart technologies, COP 21 framework and geopolitical uncertainties (Download presentation).

11:15 - 11:30: Discussion and exchange of ideas.

 

The research project has been supported by QNRF. It has been realized by a consortium composed of
