The modelling workshop is a post-conference (15th IAEE European Conference 2017 "Heading towards Sustainable Energy Systems: Evolution or Revolution?") workshop that took place on Thursday, September 7th 2017.
The topic of this workshop “Aggregating load profiles from the power sector models towards use in large-scale energy-system and integrated assessment models”, to better account for the stochastic nature of variable renewable energy sources and the challenges to large-scale models by the different timescales relevant for distinct aspects of the energy system (second-by-second energy balance in the power sector, while climate and environment models “think” in decades for changes to take effect).
An important pillar of the SET-Nav project is integration and expansion of existing energy (system) models. The specific topic of this workshop was relevant for extending existing load profiles and demand side flexibility interfaces between demand and supply models. Sufficient information was extracted from the bottom-up models and the load-profile and demand flexibility interface to allow the energy system and supply models to endogenously account for and optimize the demand shifting options. Therefore, the workshop was not only relevant and important to the modelling community but its results will be furthermore put to use in the project and will be directly applied in model expansion/integration and thereafter the model application to assess future policy pathways for the EU up to 2050.
