The role of storage technologies throughout the decarbonisation of the sector-coupled European energy system

Integrating flexibility and characteristics of active distribution grids into a large-scale European multi-energy system model

Planning of infrastructure is rather a matter of decades than years. Thus, even though the target years 2045+ seem far away, it is of significant importance to start planning the energy transition to

The role of sector coupling in the green transition: A least-cost energy system development in North Europe towards 2050

This paper analyses the role of sector coupling towards 2050 in the energy system of North Europe when pursuing the green transition. Impacts of restricted onshore wind potential and transmission

Optimal Energy Portfolios in the Electricity Sector: Trade-Offs and Interplay Between Different Flexibility Options

The expansion of renewable energy sources (RES) and the electrification of demand side sectors raise the need for power system flexibility. The following model-based analysis illustrates the

Sector coupling via hydrogen to lower the cost of energy system decarbonization

A generalized modelling framework for co-optimizing energy infrastructure investment and operation across power and transportation sectors and the supply chains of electricity and H2, while accounting for spatio-temporal variations in energy demand and supply is developed.

Integration of Variable Renewable Energies in the European power system: a model-based analysis of transmission grid extensions and energy sector coupling

This thesis studies the effects of increasing shares of variable renewable energies (VREs), such as wind and solar energy, on the European power system and evaluates two VRE system integration

Linking the Power and Transport Sectors—Part 1: The Principle of Sector Coupling

The usage of renewable energy sources (RESs) to achieve greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction goals requires a holistic transformation across all sectors. Due to the fluctuating nature of RESs, it

Linking the Power and Transport Sectors—Part 2: Modelling a Sector Coupling Scenario for Germany

“Linking the power and transport sectors—Part 1” describes the general principle of “sector coupling” (SC), develops a working definition intended of the concept to be of utility to the international
