The Users TCP Day is dedicated to socio-technical topics of the energy transition, such as the involvement of users in innovation processes. Topics of the TCP day will be current activities and highlights of the work within the Users TCP and input from other IEA TCPs with Austrian participation, addressing the topic of "inclusive energy transition". To round off the exciting inputs and impulses from Austrian experts within existing IEA cooperation, an application-oriented contribution is planned by representatives of the energy supplier Wien Energie.

The energy sector is in an enormous phase of change. The ecological need to decarbonise requires a rapid increase in demand-side energy efficiency and flexibility, as well as the growth of decentralized renewable generation, which brings energy to the heart of communities, cities and municipalities. At the same time, digitalization is changing the broader societal expectations of service, value and user-friendliness. These social and ecological forces are reversing the energy system and make it imperative that technology designers and political decision-makers properly understand how people allow, accept and use new energy technologies. There is a need to better understand the role of users in energy systems and to acquire this understanding together with know-how about technologies to accelerate the energy transition.

Adopting a "systems perspective" makes people - technology designers, policy makers, intermediaries, and end users - an integral part of hardware and software solutions that provide an energy system that meets our broader social, environmental, and economic goals. This “socio-technical” approach is the core of the IEA's User-Centred Energy System TCP (Users TCP), which forms the framework for this event.

The Users TCP Day is therefore dedicated to socio-technical topics of the energy transition, such as the involvement of users in innovation processes. Topics of the TCP day will be current activities and highlights of the work within the Users TCP and input from other IEA TCPs with Austrian participation, addressing the topic of "inclusive energy transition". To round off the exciting inputs and impulses from Austrian experts within existing IEA cooperation, an application-oriented contribution is planned by representatives of the energy supplier Wien Energie. This contribution from the “implementation point of view” is then followed by a visit of a newly established energy community project in a neighbourhood located in Vienna.

The TCP Day is planned as a “hybrid event”, allowing to participate on-site and remotely online. Please indicate in your registration if you want to participate:
-    on-site participation at the location of the TCP Day (see information about “2G+ rule”) or
-    online participation (access link will be shared short before the event)

Please note: There is only a limited number of participants on-site at the location of the event possible.

The 2G+ rule applies: recovered / vaccinated + PCR tested
For further information please see the current FFG health and safety concept online.
