 RTD Experience
The AIT Energy department focuses on the development of sustainable energy systems. The research aims at systemic approaches to achieve energy efficiency, using low or zero carbon technologies, controlled by intelligent management of supply and demand. Electric and thermal energy systems of producers and consumers are to be fully integrated and intelligently managed. AIT Energy Integrates land, urban, energy and transport planning processes with regard to implications for energy management of cities. We analyse and model urban climate and its effects on energy efficiency and we improve the urban metabolism with regard to implications for energy management for the whole urban area.
