ENSYMORA (Energy systems
modelling, research and analysis) is a research project supported by the
Danish Council for Strategic Research under the
Danish Agency for Science, Technology and
Innovation. The project is part of the Council's research stream
"Strategic research in sustainable energy and environment".
The objective is to
develop and improve methods and models used for energy systems analysis
and planning to better reflect the large changes in future energy
systems and to use the models to analyse technical options, economic
incentives, and policies related to both demand and supply of
electricity. In particular, the models are used to address the
challenges of a fossil free energy system.
The main results of the
decision support tools for operation scheduling and investment
planning under uncertainty.
interactions between uncertainty in electricity demand and renewable
power production and electricity system flexibility.
recommendations for an efficient future electricity system design.
Models and analyses
of hourly demand for electricity.
representation of stochastic variations of wind power production in
energy system models.
programming and real options models for operation scheduling and
investment planning under uncertainty.
incentives and policies for deployment of renewable energy.
Economic and system
evaluation of alternative power market designs.
At least 20 articles
published in international peer-reviewed journals.
