ReMoDigital Resilience Monitoring for the Digitization of the Energy Transition


Digitization is used to transform the technical energy system from a centralized system with large storage capacities on the energy source side to a more decentralized system in which energy conversion, intermediate storage and consumption are to be orchestrated in such a way that supply always meets demand. Digitization changes the entire technical energy system and its characteristics to a very large extent. In such a digitized system, higher resiliencies can be achieved, but also greater vulnerabilities can arise. In conjunction with existing and new generation and distribution technologies, it opens up flexibilities that were not possible in the original energy system. At the same time, new vulnerabilities of the redesigned system must be taken into account and reduced by means of resilient design.  In order to guarantee and continuously check the resilience, the control and monitoring of the functionality, but also of turbulences and shocks, and the adaptability and systemic change, are of essential importance.

The aim of the project is to develop essential system analytical building blocks of resilience monitoring for the digitized energy system transition, and recommendations for its integration into corporative processes. 


In order to achieve the overall goal of the project, a methodology will be developed that allows combining approved methods in risk analysis and risk management with new, creative forecasting and process management methods. The development of a concept for resilience monitoring in the path of the implementation of digital technologies for the energy system transition forms the framework of the project. Moreover, a set of instruments is to be developed, which can be used for the analysis and interactive representation of the resilience of energy systems in the context of such processes.
