    About Project

    The overall research question of the section is how energy systems can be decarbonised and how to design and operate systems and markets with large amounts of variable renewable energy. The section develops energy system models that integrate all energy carriers and sectors that at the same time enable a cost-efficient integration of low-carbon technologies in the energy system. This provides decision support for diverse stakeholders from both, policymaking and industry, in the context of the energy transition.
