Modelling and Optimisation of Integrated Urban Energy Systems for both Heating and Power

 

Supervisor: Dr Zhibin Yu
Sponsoring Company: Scottish Power

This project aims to model and optimise district-level multi-stakeholder, multi-vector integrated energy systems for both heating and power through a technical and market analysis, which utilises multiple sources of local electricity and heat generation from renewables and involves multiple energy users and stakeholders of infrastructure. This project will investigate how to optimise such integrated urban energy systems and also provide an insight in the opportunity of utilising electricity and heat storage systems to aid the balancing and effectiveness of matching supply and demand with the multiple characteristics we would have on the system. Furthermore, an innovative business model will be developed to facilitate the uptake of the developed solution.
