REGISTER for Upcoming SmiLES project Webinars on the Maximisation of Renewables in Europe’s Energy Mix

The Smart Integration of Energy Storages in Local Multi Energy Systems for Maximising the Share of Renewables in Europe’s Energy Mix (SmILES) project will be hosting two webinars on the 25th of September and 2nd October.

 

1. Webinar on Integration of energy storages – best practices for modelling, simulation and optimization

Energy systems increasingly connect for operational, planning and investment evaluations. To model and understand this connection, we lack established and standardized tool chains. In this webinar of the SmILES project, experts on energy system modelling introduce several approaches for simulating multi-energy systems with storage, discussing their specific strengths and when to use which. The participants will gain an overview of different simulation paradigms that underlie the current state-of-the-art in multi-energy systems research, as presented by the SmILES consortium.

Your presenters will be researchers from the following institutions: Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) – EnergyVille, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), and Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

When: 25 September 2019, 16:00-17:30
Where: https://webconf.vc.dfn.de/smiles_webinar-1

2.  Webinar on the PreCISES approach, a novel simulation method:

This webinar of the SmILES project introduces the novel PreCISES approach: A method that allows you to document WHAT you are simulating, HOW you are simulating it, and WHY the simulation is used. Documenting and sharing in this way makes your simulations reusable, verifiable and aids development – especially when they are cross-domain or cross-specialty. PreCISE offers the unique advantage that it is independent of the user’s modelling platform. Researchers and engineers will be now able to cooperate for example by combining models for planning and operation, thanks to this solution. It’s open source and available for anybody.

Your presenters are researchers in the SmILES project from the following institutions: Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) – EnergyVille, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

When: 2 October 2019, 16:00-17:10

About SmiLES

The SmILES proposal contributes to the (LCE 33) “European Common Research and Innovation Agendas (ECRIAs) in support of the implementation of the SET Action Plan” with the aim to merge knowledge about smart integration of storage in hybrid energy system (heat and electricity) on national level for a reasonable instrumentation of storage and renewable energy technologies on European level.

Current energy systems are operated and controlled with a focus on only one form of energy (electricity or heat). Future highly integrated energy system must make the best use of various energy storage technologies in collaboration. As operation and control strategies for hybrid energy systems comprising thermal and electrical storages as well as the cross-linking technologies, which allow load shifts between thermal and electrical nets exist currently only at a conceptual stage, optimized operation and control strategies have to be worked out and applied to system configurations to proof the benefit of a hybrid energy system.
