In the coming years of energy transition it is no longer sufficient to use and optimise single-energy networks separately. In stead of single-energy networks, as there are power, gas, and heat, it is required to integrate these networks in multi-energy networks.

Simulators for each of these networks are available. However integrating these simulators, taking into account the different properties of the energy carriers and huge size of the networks, it is impossible to use standard software for this challenge. New methods are needed both for the multi-energy networks that are based and optimised using the underlying physics and methods which are suitable for high performance computing, including massive parallel algorithms on CPU's, GPU's and FPGA's.

The conference that took place on June 17th, brought together researchers, working on system integration and High Performance Computing, with network companies and industry to address new challenges, share solutions and discuss future research directions.
