ET.20.006 – Future-proof distribution grid design

Route: Energy transition

Cluster question: 018 How can we quickly make our energy supply greener while keeping it affordable and reliable?

This proposal addresses how to keep urban energy systems reliable, affordable and sustainable in the future. Challenges are posed by unpredictable renewable energy sources and by additional user demands such as charging of electric vehicles. We develop Artificial Intelligence approaches that provide efficient and explainable demand-side management solutions, taking into account system-level objectives such reliability.
