The project focuses on local energy markets and their interlinkages with superregional markets. Based on economic analysis of the respective market, a modelling framework for coupling decentralized and centralized energy markets with a high degree of detail will be developed and applied.  <<

Project description The research project extends the stream of research about local and superregional energy markets. It contributes to the ongoing scientific as well as the societal discussion. The project has three goals: First, to perform an economic analysis on regulation and market organization including the centralized and decentralized developments in the energy system. Second, to develop a modeling framework that represents these centralized and decentralized market structures with a high degree on technical details. This is done by extending and coupling three well-established models of local and superregional energy systems. Third, we apply the modeling framework to analyze scenarios of the energy system for exemplary model regions and Germany as a whole. The results allow conclusions about different forms for market organization and regulation. To keep it close to reality, selected regions in Germany (possibly Ludwigsburg county, the cities of Essen or Hamburg, two further counties) may bring in their expertise and point of views. This may also include regional companies or regulatory bodies.
