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".

Objectives:

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 project:

For society

  • Development of decision support tools for operation scheduling and investment planning under uncertainty.

  • Assessments of interactions between uncertainty in electricity demand and renewable power production and electricity system flexibility.

  • Policy recommendations for an efficient future electricity system design.

Scientific

  • Models and analyses of hourly demand for electricity.

  • Improved representation of stochastic variations of wind power production in energy system models.

  • Stochastic programming and real options models for operation scheduling and investment planning under uncertainty.

  • Analyses of incentives and policies for deployment of renewable energy.

  • Economic and system evaluation of alternative power market designs.

Dissemination

  • At least 20 articles published in international peer-reviewed journals.

  • Three go-home meetings, a seminar, and at least 10 presentations at inter-national conferences.

Education

  • Supervision and completion of 4 PhD’s and training of two post docs during the project.
