To phase-out fossil fuels, energy systems must shift to renewable electricity as the main source of primary energy. In this paper, we analyze how electrification can support the integration of fluctuating renewables, like wind and PV, and mitigate the need for storage and thermal backup plants. Using a cost minimizing model for system planning, we...

Supply and demand for electricity are central to the decarbonisation of the energy system. To replace fossil fuels, supply of electricity must shift to wind and solar, but due to their variability, fully renewable supply poses a challenge. On the other hand, additional demand for electricity arises to cut emissions in the heating, transport, or ind...
Preprint
Full-text available
The evolution of renewable energy demonstrates that development of energy systems is not a deterministic process dictated by technology but equally shaped by societal and cultural forces. Key instruments in this process are energy scenarios that describe hypothetical future systems and pathways from the present to this future. Against this backgrou...
Chapter
In this paper, we analyze the interdependence between the structure of transmission infrastructure and the electricity mix, applied to the case of Germany today and into the future. In particular, we are interested in how an energy system based on a high share of distributed renewable sources operates under different transmission regimes, for examp...
Article
Full-text available
The European Commission's call for energy communities has motivated academia to focus research on design and trading concepts of local electricity markets. The literature provides a wide range of conceptual ideas and analyses on the technical and economic framework of single market features such as peer-to-peer trading. The feasible, system-wide in...
Article
Der Schienengüterverkehr zwischen Asien und Europa gewinnt durch den rapiden Ausbau chinesischer Wirtschaftswege immer mehr an Relevanz. Der steigende Bedarf am Transport hochwertiger und eilbedürftiger Güter kann Potenzial für eine deutliche Erhöhung der Transportgeschwindigkeit auf dem Schienenweg bedeuten. Dieser Beitrag vergleicht konventionell...
Article
This paper investigates the impact of uncertain photovoltaic generation on unit commitment decisions for the German rolling planning procedure employing a large-scale stochastic unit commitment electricity market model (stELMOD). A novel approach to simulate a time-adaptive intra-day photovoltaic forecast, solely based on an exponential smoothing o...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper we introduce a five-fold approach to open science comprised of open data, open-source software (that is, programming and modeling tools, model code, and numerical solvers), as well as open-access dissemination. The advantages of open energy models are being discussed. A fully open-source bottom-up electricity sector model with high sp...
Chapter
While the first phase of the energiewende, focusing on the electricity sector, was largely successful, the second phase needs to focus on all energy usage, especially heat, transportation, and usage as a raw material in the chemical industry. In that context, intensified “sector coupling” will be required, accompanied by a further shift from fossil...

This data documentation describes a data set of the German electricity, heat, and natural gas sectors compiled within the research project ‘LKD-EU’ (Long-term planning and short-term optimization of the German electricity system within the European framework: Further devel-opment of methods and models to analyze the electricity system including the...
Article
We discuss the implications of two price zones (i.e., one northern and one southern bidding area) on the German electricity market. In the northern zone, continuous increases in capacity with low variable costs cause large regional supply surpluses in the market dispatch, while in the southern zone conventional capacity decreases. As the spatial im...

Der Studiengang Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen einer der renommiertesten und mit über 3.000 Studierenden größten Studiengänge der Technischen Universität Berlin. Bereits seit Wintersemester 1926/27 wird er - zu Beginn noch unter dem Namen "Wirtschaft und Technik" - zunächst an der damaligen Technischen Hochschule Berlin-Charlottenburg angeboten und ist...

Article
FlexcCargoRail is a technology project aiming to increase efficiency of freight railway operations, particularly, the segment of transport on the last mile and shunting operation. The basic idea is to enhance rail cars with rechargeable battery-powered engines and remote control, thus al-lowing to switch cars without use of a shunting engine. In th...

Project
The 'Clean Energy for all Europeans' package of the European Commission calls for higher engagement of residential electricity consumers in the energy value chain, from production and sharing to flexible and responsive demand. However, while the European legislation advances the end user of electricity as a central player in the future market, national regulations do not follow this process fast enough. The EU-funded NRGcitizens project will explore the advantages and disadvantages of a decentralised energy transformation from a system perspective, how the organisational models could be designed, and which business models arise in energy communities. The project will also examine the possible market designs for a 100 % renewable energy transformation, integrating the heating and transportation sectors.

The project aims to develop methods to consider uncertainties in energy system models. The focus of the project is - analyzing relevant uncertainties in energy systems, concerning operation as well as system planning - considering dependences among sectors (electricity, heat, and natural gas)
