Energy supply and distribution is one of the key infrastructures of our nowadays society.

In our efforts at the SI-Lab group we address

  • Energy production (here: electrical energy, e.g. by conventional or virtual power plants
  • Energy distribution
  • Energy consumption (i.e. energy efficiency)

We focus on the simulation and optimization of problems that can appear in these fields.  Also the design and evaluation of corresponding control strategies is focused in our group. An important aspect in the field of energy efficiency, but also new business models that arise the behavior of organizations or humans in key, to reach the goals of current energy transitions. We apply actor-based simulation (social simulation) to investigate those aspects.
