The manufacturing sector accounts for approximately one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the green and digital transformation of the industrial sector is essential for the transition to a sustainable energy model, adapting their energy generation infrastructure and their energy demanding systems to the latest trends, and preparing them for their active participation towards the foreseen European energy system. In this regard, this special session is focused on the discussion of emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, digital twins, industrial internet of things and cyberphysical systems, among others, applied to industrial carbon neutrality challenges.

Topics under this session include (but not limited to)

  • Industrial energy hubs
  • Industrial renewable infrastructures
  • Industrial demand response schemes
  • Digital models for the operation of energy systems in industry
  • Advanced control strategies of industrial systems for efficiency increase
  • Novel monitoring solutions for industrial assets performance monitoring
