SummaryIn this paper we present the regional techno-economic model ETEM, designed for the analysis of regional energy/environment systems and we show how it can be used to explore the possible penetration of new technologies in a region corresponding roughly to the canton of Geneva. We investigate three scenarios with different constraints on CO2 emissions and electricity imports and show the essential role played by new technologies, linked through a smart grid, in the effort toward a… 

Energy technology environment model with smart grid and robust nodal electricity prices

This paper deals with the modeling of power flow in a transmission grid within the multi-sectoral multi-energy long-term regional energy model ETEM-SG, and uses a linearized DC power flow model that represents the transmission grid with the main constraints on the power flowing through the different arcs of the electricity transmission network.
