Summary

We will study how to realise efficient, reliable, sustainable and socially acceptable energy system


Integration (ESI). Drawing from interdisciplinary perspectives, we will identify ways to promote efficient use of a flexible energy system by end users. Specifically, we will examine which financial and social incentives/feedback 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. In collaboration with mathematicians and experts in energy grid management, the results of our research will be integrated in the algorithms aimed to control ESI as to realise stable, efficient and sustainable ESI, which depends on users’ willingness to accept and use the proposed integrated system functionalities.
