and transfer areas

  • System analyses and sustainable development
  • Regional impact of the energy transition
  • Coupling of the electricity, heat and mobility sectors (e.g. heat pump, electromobility and power to cool)
  • System efficiency: efficiency and flexibility in industry
  • Role of electrical and thermal flexibility in the energy supply system
  • Flexibilisation of electricity and heat generation using CHP technology, especially biogas, biomethane and other renewable gases as energy sources
  • Marketing renewable electricity (spot market, balancing power markets, heat market and new markets for grid congestion management)
  • Smart market: intelligent energy markets taking grid aspects into account
  • Security of supply and resilience through holistic planning and operational approaches
