Synergistic Approach of Multi-Energy Models for an European Optimal Energy System Management Tool

H2020 project No 773897 - Nov. 1, 2017 - Oct. 31, 2020

An end-to-end planning and operation tool, composed of a set of optimization models based on an integrated modelling of the pan-European Energy System;

An IT platform for providing seamless access to data and high performance computing resources, catering for flexible models (easily replacing submodels and the corresponding efficient solution algorithm) and workflows;

A database of public data and 3 case studies highlighting the tool’s adequacy and relevance.

The project

The general objective of the project is to fill the gaps between the increasing complexity of the future energy system planning and operational problems, and the currently available system analysis tools. The project will develop an end-to-end planning tool which will help to successfully increase the share of renewable energy into the European Energy System without compromising on system reliability. The targeted platform will account for the Pan-European interconnected electricity system, potential synergies with other energy systems, emerging technologies and flexibility resources, providing a fully integrated modelling environment.
