Research Interest

Field of Research: Industrial energy management, CO2 intensity

Keywords: mulit-modal energy system modelling, carbon intensity of energy, energy conversion, energy storages

Our research goal is the development of methods for further increase the flexibilization of the energy demand, which is one of the most important keys to a successful Energiewende. Therefore, we are focusing on the enhancement of transparency of multi-modal energy systems. We concentrate on the development and optimization of detailed digital replica of complex multi-modal energy related industrial systems and processes. Besides this, we aim for a renewable as possible supply, use and conversion of energy and thereby as climaneutral as possible at minimal costs.

To achieve this we simplify energy systems in such a way that we can solve it by mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) or linear programming (LP). Our whole system analysis is done in our own system modelling and optimization tool (similar to OSeMOSYS or oemof)

Our main research goals can be summarized as followed:

  • Establish the method of the “digital twin“ in context of digitization of energy systems
  • Optimizing the system setup to minimize cost and emissions by adding new technologies or rearrange the use of available ones
  • Uncertainty quantification (to obtain ±XX% cost and/or CO2 emission)
  • Development of a sensitivity analysis for small system constraint changes
