Frontiers in Energy Research

Optimal design of multi-energy systems including seasonal energy storage. (Followed by Apéro and Awards)

30. Mai 2017 | Seminar

Frontiers in Energy Research is a series of lectures given by PhD students of their energy-related research work. Anyone can attend. No registration is required.

In recent years, the necessity of reducing the environmental impact of the current energy sector has led to the deployment of conversion and storage technologies based on renewable energy sources. In this context, multi-energy systems is a new paradigm which exploits the interaction between various energy carriers at design and operation phase, allowing for improved technical, economic and environmental performance. Within this framework, seasonal energy storage has recently caught much attention due to its ability to compensate the seasonal intermittency of renewable energy sources. However, compensating renewables fluctuations at the seasonal scale is particularly challenging: on one hand, a few systems, such as hydrogen storage and large thermal storage, allow offsetting seasonal variations; whilst on the other hand, the optimal design and operation are often hindered by the complexity of the optimization problem.

Our work aims at solving different issues arising when dealing with the optimal design of multi-energy systems involving seasonal energy storage from an integrated system perspective.

This is the last of the Frontiers seminars for spring 2017 semester and will be followed by an Apéro and an award for the 'Best Frontiers Presenter 2017' from 5:30pm in CLA Glasshalle. Please join us to celebrate a successful series of Frontiers seminars.
