Spatio-temporal Modeling for Renewable Distributed Energy Generation Planning at the Municipal Scale


Luis Ramirez Camargo

Abstract: The purpose of this project is to develop a method that combines GIS-based renewable energy sources potential estimation procedures with models for the simulation of energy generation and consumption profiles in a high temporal resolution. This new method should serve for planning of virtual power plants at municipal scale. Furthermore, the intention is to include a multicarrier approach in which the virtual power plant not only supplies enough electricity but also enough energy for heating and water heating for local energy demand. This consideration of multiple energy carriers will contribute to conceive highly efficient distributed energy generation systems.
