Keynote 2: The Big Integration: Simulation Platforms for Low Carbon Decision Making

Dr Matthias Berger


  • the role of information and BigData in decision making
  • how interactive rooms and visualizations can support the d-m process
  • urban planning by the Future Cities Lab
  • beyond Smart Cities


Matthias Berger received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg (Germany) in 2006. He joined the High Voltage Laboratory of ETH Zurich (2006 - 2011) where his PhD was dedicated to modelling and optimization of multiple energy carrier systems and integration of distributed energy resources. Matthias has studied history and philosophy of knowledge (2008 - 2011) at the Department of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences of ETH Zurich. His practical experiences include working as a project coordinator for Seed Sustainability (2007 - 2008) as well as R&D at EADS Space Transportation in Bremen and EADS Astrium in Friedrichshafen (both Germany, 2005 - 2006). Matthias is member of AAAS, IAEE and IEEE. At present he is with SEC’s Future Cities Laboratory (Singapore). His research focus is simulation and visualization of energy-related issues of urban environments.
