The main focus of the department is the development of energy system models for the analysis of the transformational processes taking place in the supply and use of energy in Germany and beyond, in accordance with the political framework. Another area of focus is the techno-economic evaluation of energy systems based on energy demand, greenhouse gas emissions and costs, as well as consideration of the tailor-made integration of the national energy system into European and global supply networks. In addition, the analysis and evaluation of resource availability under the changing boundary conditions of future energy systems is being undertaken. The main goal is the provision of actionable knowledge for energy transformation for decision-makers in politics and business.

Focus

Considered technology paths

Infrastructure Analysis H2Mobility

Electric drivetrains are key elements of low carbon energy-efficient transport based on renewable energy sources. Furthermore, a transportation system with zero local emissions will substantially improve people’s quality of life, especially in urban areas currently struggling with air quality issues.

FINE

Open Source Framework FINE

The FINE python package provides a framework for modeling, optimizing and assessing energy systems with multiple regions, commodities and time steps. Target of the optimization is the minimization of the total annual cost while considering technical and enviromental constraints.
