Blog #5 – Sustainability and ethical perspectives for energy system modeling

Introduction to my research

My research mainly focuses on the modeling of investments and policies for a future low-carbon electricity system with the integration of large-scale variable renewable energy (VRE) for the North Sea Region. According to the EU Roadmap 2050, the power sector is expected to mitigate nearly all its CO2 emissions by 2050. To achieve this goal, more and more wind- and solar power are invested in Europe for electricity supply. An electricity system with a high penetration level of VRE such as wind and solar may bring more challenges in load balance and system operation due to the intermittency of VRE resources. In regard to this, the main […]
