Storage and Cross-linked Infrastructure


The main objective of the subtopic “Networks and Storage Integration” is to provide the necessary technologies for dependable operation of future energy systems. This requires not only the integration of technologies across different types of traditionally separately operated energy networks, but also the combined effort of several disciplines in order to deal approriately with highly decentralised and volatile power generation from renewable sources.

Within the topic Superconductivity, Networks and System Integration we model the Smart Grid as a techno-economic system. Through analytical, game-theoretical, and simulation-based evaluation approaches, we are building a detailed understanding of the trade-offs of strategic decisions regarding efficiency, sustainability, security of supply, but also societal acceptance.
