The increased use of renewable energies promotes decarbonization and raises the load on power distribution networks, forcing responsible distribution network operators to re-evaluate and re-design their networks. In the study "Distribution Network Optimization: Predicting computation times to design scenario analysis for network operators", we focus on infrastructural decomposition, where the distribution network is decomposed into multiple parts and planning problems, which are then optimized separately. (read more)


Wel­come to FlexiEn­ergy!

In the joint project FlexiEnergy, a consortium from research and industry is developing an intelligent decision support system for cross-sector planning of energy networks. The planning tool offers the possibility to use synergies between different energy sources, such as electricity, gas, heat and mobility, and thus to design energy systems more cost-efficiently and with lower CO2 emissions, as well as to ensure the stability of the grids in the future. In addition to recommendations for future grid design, the project will also develop recommendations for the design of business and tariff models as well as regulatory policy recommendations.
