Techno-economic optimisation in the energy sector
The energy system is increasingly being networked across sectors. In order to get the most out of the technology used in this environment, various optimisation cases can be implemented during operation. The Competence Centre's techno-economic models can map both technical boundary conditions and economic components, and enable case-specific optimisation for various applications.
Market and techno-economic analysis
For the successful launch of new products and services, it is essential to know the target market, the environment, and the potential of new technologies. The Competence Centre offers the expertise to analyse market mechanisms, technology potentials, environmental influences, and trends, taking into account customer needs. The understanding of the needs and behaviour of customers as well as the verification of solution approaches are achieved through the application of user-centred design methods.
Multiple benefits from efficiency measures
The implementation of energy efficiency measures benefits the environment. The extent to which a company can benefit can be shown by identifying, quantifying, and monetising the various advantages. Competence Centre researchers present efficiency measures transparently so that multiple benefits become visible and possible.
Evaluation and monitoring of new technologies
Comprehensive knowledge of both market trends and developments as well as technological evolutions and revolutions, allow the Competence Centre to assess and evaluate new business ideas. Thanks to its expertise, the centre offers companies an ideal partner for the development and realisation of new products and services in a target-oriented manner.
Decentralised multi-energy systems
Decentralised multi-energy systems represent a promising alternative for stabilising the power supply. The research group at the Competence Centre develops business ecosystems for multi-energy systems in which the core businesses and interfaces of the connected partners are crystallised. Together with specialists, the profitability and the achievable CO2 savings are calculated and tested.
Solutions for the electricity industry
The trifecta of security, efficiency and ecology is causing a restructuring of the design of the electricity market. New requirements, new market participants and many uncertainties increase the complexity of the market. The experts of the Competence Centre support the identification of market opportunities and the development of new business models.
