The aim of our work is to develop efficient energy systems. We develop and optimize energy-efficient and economical energy systems through the interaction of energy supply, distribution, storage, and use. The focus lies on local energy systems and the integration of renewable energies.
We develop solutions to design transformation pathways for municipal energy systems and heating networks. In doing so, we cooperate closely with public utilities and municipalities. We develop integral concepts, create measurement concepts and evaluate them, investigate dynamic system behavior and perform multi-criteria evaluations. Furthermore, we prepare demonstration projects and implement promising energy concepts together with our partners.
The future of energy supply is regenerative, but also dynamic and diverse. Short-term fluctuations in regenerative electricity generation must be compensated for by a large number of small, spatially distributed plants. At the same time, the sectors of electricity, heat and gas supply, and production and mobility are increasingly converging. These complex requirements are countered by a multitude of system variants and operating options. With the help of mathematical optimization models, we develop energy-efficient and economical energy systems. We optimize the dimensioning and operation of energy supply plants and storage facilities in future markets.
Whether for existing buildings or new construction projects – we support you both in the climate-neutral and economical design of districts. Our distinctive feature: the integrated consideration of electricity and heat supply as well as refurbishment options and e-mobility. With the help of appropriate models and mathematical optimization, we select the ecologically and economically most suitable concept from the numerous technology and efficiency options. By considering different scenarios, we make the district ready for the future.
