Socially acceptable Incentives and algorithms for efficient, reliable, sustainable energy system integration.

Gas & Electricity

We examine how to synergise and couple infrastructure for gas and electricity and take into account heat demand, via e.g.,

  • Combined Heat Power (CHP) systems
  • Hybrid heat pumps
  • Power-to-Gas and ‘Gas-to-Power (fuel cells)’ facilities

and develop control algorithms that enhance the efficiency, stability and sustainability of such integrated energy systems.

Incentives

Next, we examine which financial and social end-user incentives are acceptable and effective to match energy demand to the local fluctuating supply of various renewable energy sources to efficiently use the local capacity of the grid.

  • We integrate incentives in the algorithms aimed to control ESI.
  • We employ a multi-method approach, including questionnaire and experimental studies, and robust distributed control methods
  • We integrate macro perspectives (grid management) and micro perspectives (user behavior and incentives; user acceptability), and study technological and social innovations in an integrated way, which is highly novel to the field yet key to develop innovative sustainable and acceptable ESI.

Relatie met NWA-route Energietransitie

De NWA Route Energietransitie past in het breder perspectief van initiatieven die gezamenlijk de energietransitie onderzoeken. In deze NWA Route worden de belangrijkste uitdagingen voor het realiseren van een 100% duurzame energiehuishouding in kaart gebracht.

NWA Routes illustreren de samenhang en het belang van de 138 clustervragen. Transitie naar een duurzame energiehuishouding is bij uitstek een complex vraagstuk en vraagt om een geïntegreerde aanpak. Daarom NERA-initiatief tot opstellen Route Energietransitie, in relatie met en aanvulling op de andere routes.
