ICT and Climate: A Digital Structure for the Energy Transition

The Global Climate Forum and Fraunhofer IEE have published a perspective on a digital structure of the energy transition in the journal “GAIA – Ecological Perspectives for Science and Society”. The work described in the article is conducted within the Kopernikus project ENavi which develops a navigation system that helps to identify and tackle critical transitions in the German Energy Transition. The Global Climate Forum, Fraunhofer IEE and its partners explores the possible roles of communication technologies in the future energy system as well the opportunities that digitalisation processes create with regard to electricity, thermal energy and mobility. In a mobile visualisation environment, GCF discusses scenario-based narratives of a transformation to a more sustainable mobility with stakeholders in an interactive setting.
