Welcome to IT4SE

Like the rest of the world, Germany and New Zealand are facing the danger of global climate change and need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a major source of which is the production of energy through the use of fossil fuel. Both Germany and New Zealand therefore share the goal of maximising generation of cost-effective renewable energy, and its conservation through more efficient use. Information technology - including novel mobile and web-based services - will motivate and empower citizens who like to take an active part in this endeavour. The project acronym IT4SE stands for "IT for Smart renewable Energy generation and use".

IT4SE was funded by the International Office of the German Ministry for Education and Reserach under the APRA programe.

The IT4SE project expired by the end of 2016. However, network activities are now continued under the umbrella of the IFIP working group wg13-10
