HOMEY

H2-driven Business Model: Portfolio Management of a Multi-Energy System under Uncertainty


May 2022 - April 2024


Funding: 428,000 euro (out of 706,000 euro granted to the whole consortium)

HOMEY aims to design market-based operational models for a system, including power-to-X assets (such as electrolyzers and hydrogen storage systems), renewable assets (such as wind and PV) as well as battery energy storage systems. While properly coping with different sources of uncertainty, the goal is to determine the optimal bidding strategy in potential target markets, such as power, ancillary service, and hydrogen markets. We envision to verify and demonstrate the performance of our operational models in a real pilot in Denmark belonging to Siemens Gamesa.

Project partners: DTU and Siemens Gamesa

Sustainable P2X Business Model


March 2022 - February 2023


Funding: 80,000 euro

This project models the operating region of power-to-X assets such as electrolyzers and hydrogen tanks in a convex manner as accurate as possiable. It then develops a stochatsic investment model, determining the optimal investment decisions in those assets from Ørsted's perspective.

Project partners: DTU, Ørsted, and Hybrid Greentech

This project has funded the RA position of Enrica Raheli (LinkedIn).

FLEX-CEC

Flexible Citizen Energy Communities


September 2021 - August 2023


Funding: 440,000 euro (out of 799,000 euro granted to the whole consortium)

FLEX-CEC aims at unfolding the potential of Citizen Energy Communities (CEC) in Denmark and harness flexibility (FLEX) from the CEC participating citizens and businesses with flexible energy production and consumption. To do so, the CEC will be connected to the wholesale energy market through digital technologies and by close collaboration with balance responsible parties (BRP). The project consists of three distinct pilots in Denmark, each with its own characteristics in terms of governance, participants, and energy setup. The research and development activities on technical and market aspects feed into three pilots. Read more here.

DTU-NTNU Joint PhD

Market Design and Sector Coupling for Multi-Carrier Integrated Energy Systems


December 2020 - November 2023


Funding: 210,000 euro

This project models uncertainty propegation among energy sectors accounting for the physics laws of energy flow, and designs energy markets which are aware of the systemic risk of the whole interconncted multi-energy system.

Project partners: DTU and NTNU (Norway)

This project has funded the PhD position of Yannick Werner.

Smart4RES

Data Science for Renewable Energy Prediction (RES)


November 2019 - April 2023


Funding: 400,000 euro (out of 4,000,000 euro granted to the whole consortium)

Smart4RES aims to substantially improve the entire model and value chain in renewable energy prediction by proposing the next generation of RES forecasting models, enabling an increase of at least 15% in RES forecasting performance. In particular, we focus on desigining data markets, incentivizing wind farms to exchange data and imporve their forecasts. Read more here.
