Article
Full-text available
Energy system modelling is of high importance to investigate different scenarios in their technical, economical and environmental feasibility. The interplay of different technologies and energy flows in respective models can be represented as directed graphs in a generic but comprehensible formalism. However, additional effort is needed to create s...

The energy transition towards renewable and more distributed power production triggers the need for grid and storage expansion on all voltage levels. Today’s power system planning focuses on certain voltage levels or spatial resolutions. In this work we present an open source software tool eGo which is able to optimize grid and storage expansion th...

Background The research field of energy system analysis is faced with the challenge of increasingly complex systems and their sustainable transition. The challenges are not only on a technical level but also connected to societal aspects. Energy system modelling plays a decisive role in this field, and model properties define how useful it is in re...
Article
Energy system models have become indispensable tools for planning future energy systems by providing insights into different development trajectories. However, sustainable systems with high shares of renewable energy are characterized by growing cross-sectoral interdependencies and decentralized structures. To capture important properties of increa...
Article
Full-text available
The increasing integration of renewable energy into the electricity supply system creates new challenges for distribution grids. The planning and operation of distribution systems requires appropriate grid models that consider the heterogeneity of existing grids. In this paper, we describe a novel method to generate synthetic medium-voltage (MV) gr...
Article
Full-text available
There are several power grid modelling approaches suitable for simulations in the field of power grid planning. The restrictive policies of grid operators, regulators and research institutes concerning their original data and models lead to an increased interest in open source approaches of grid models based on open data. By including all voltage l...

Full-text available
The global energy system is undergoing a major transition, and in energy planning and decision-making across governments, industry and academia, models play a crucial role. Because of their policy relevance and contested nature, the transparency and open availability of energy models and data are of particular importance. Here we provide a practica...
Article
Globally, due to industrialization, GHG emissions continue to increase. This is despite the existing scientific and political consensus to fight human-induced climate change. To reverse this trend, viable, cost-effective decarbonization pathways are needed. We focus on the European power supply system and demonstrate the techno-economic feasibility...
Article
Climate change forces humankind to strong reduction measures for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Following this scientific consensus the European Union obliged it's member states to achieve high reduction targets to almost zero emissions – especially in the power generation sector – until 2050. Evidence-based strategies to implement cost-effective...
Article
Full-text available
The process of modelling energy systems is accompanied by challenges inherently connected with mathematical modelling. However, due to modern realities in the 21st century, existing challenges are gaining in magnitude and are supplemented with new ones. Modellers are confronted with a rising complexity of energy systems and high uncertainties on di...
Article
This study demonstrates – based on a dynamical simulation of a global, decentralized 100% renewable electricity supply scenario – that a global climate-neutral electricity supply based on the volatile energy sources photovoltaics (PV), wind energy (onshore) and concentrated solar power (CSP) is feasible at decent cost. A central ingredient of this...
Technical Report
Die vorliegende Studie untersucht und bewertet verschiedene Pfade auf dem Weg zu einer Stromversorgung aus 100 % Erneuerbaren Energien (EE). Im Vordergrund steht die Frage, ob es ökonomisch sinnvoll ist, die Kapazitäten zur Erzeugung Erneuerbarer Energie auf die Standorte zu konzentrieren, die die geringsten Kosten bei der Stromgestehung aufweisen....
Conference Paper
Mini-grids with high shares of renewable energies usually require energy storage systems based on technological and economic reasons. According to natural conditions battery storage is often the only applicable storage technology and thus hybrid mini-grids can be considered as very attractive niche market in substitution of diesel mini-grids. Unfor...
Conference Paper
Today's energy supply on eastern Caribbean islands is mostly based on diesel and oil fired power plants. This leads to relatively high electricity cost, CO2 emissions and dependence on fuel imports. Good natural weather conditions and a large geothermal energy potential on several islands enable electricity supply by renewable energy sources (RES)....
