The exploitation of energy from renewable sources is currently expanding at maximum speed. The fluctuating generation of wind and solar energy creates a high demand for flexibility in the overall energy system, such as the expansion of storage facilities or flexible consumers.
Target of this master’s thesis is to work on the development of a model of the European energy system in the simulation framework LEC ENERsim, which will enable comprehensive modelling of the electricity, heat, industry and transport sectors. In particular, the model should also consider transport options, in order to examine, for example, possible ways to import energy. The model will be used to investigate the structure of the future overall system and to evaluate the performance of different technologies for providing flexibility.
