The group Energy Management employs–based on electro-technical, socio- scientific and economic approaches–methods of computer science to enable an assessment of various scenarios for a future energy supply system. Our vision is a post fossil and distributed generation. Based on that vision, the key aspects of our work are:
The increasing number of renewable energy converters and controllable consumers open up the possibility to locally balance demand and supply. In our projects, we develop suitable coordination concepts and evaluate their effectiveness and efficiency using simulations. Subsequently, we realize them in cooperation with our partners from industry and research. We also investigate possible architectures for the integration of decentral actors into energy markets. Hereby, we also account for data and system security. View
As part of our project work and research activities, a lot of research-relevant publications develop. The group presents itself on national and international conferences, on symposia and workshops as well as in learned journals and literature. A list of publications can be found here.
With our issues and research activities, we seek to shape tomorrow’s energy consumption in a sustainable way. Your feedback, suggestions and criticism is very welcome if we could spark your interest in our work. You can find the members of our group here.
