Energy System Analysis

Project Description

Due to the phase-out of nuclear power and the extension of renewable energy sources the Bavarian electric energy system is faced with great challenges. In the project Energy System Analysis Bavaria a hybrid simulation model for the energy transition in Bavaria is developed. The simulation of different scenarios enables us to analyze the impact of different options on the electricity generation balance, the electricity consumption and the environment. For this purpose we model the most important components along the energy chain (supply, transportation, demand). A main area is the modeling of fluctuating renewable energy sources, such as wind or solar energy, in order to investigate the interaction of conventional power plants, storages and the electricity demand.
