The joint project with ewi Köln analyses local energy markets as a link between regional and central energy system transformation. The sub-project of the HFT Stuttgart is concerned with the model-based analysis of regional power generation systems based on the simulation platform SimStadt. EnSys-LE addresses the question of how local and national energy systems behave in relation to each other. For four representative districts in Germany, the potential for renewable energies is investigated and how it compares to the national targets for renewable energies.
The first step is an economic analysis of the basis for regulation and market organisation, which takes into account central and decentralised developments in the entire energy system. Based on this, a model framework will be developed between the HFT and ewi, which maps decentralised and centralised market structures with the necessary high degree of technical detail by further developing and coupling a total of three existing models. Finally, this model framework will be used for the parallel and interacting simulation of energy supply scenarios in four exemplary counties as well as of the electricity and heat system at the federal level in order to derive an assessment of selected forms of market organisation and regulation.
The research project serves to advance the state of the art in the field of local energy markets and their linkage to supra-regional markets. A key result will be, for example, the extent to which local renewable energy sources are over- or under-invested in relation to national targets.
