Special Session

Special Session Introduction

Integrated Energy Systems (IES) whereby electricity, heat, cooling, fuels, transport, and so on optimally interact with each other at various levels (for instance, within a district, city or region) represent an important opportunity to increase technical, economic and environmental performance relative to "classical" energy systems whose sectors are treated "separately" or "independently". This performance improvement can take place at both the operational and the planning stage. While such systems and in particular systems with distributed generation of multiple energy vectors can be a key option to decarbonize the energy sector, the approaches needed to model and relevant tools to analyse them are often of great complexity.

In this sense, this special session aims to gather, share and foster original research articles on the recently emerging and cross-disciplinary field of IES, with a particular focus on "Flexible Resources". Manuscripts from interdisciplinary groups with both theoretical interpretation and practical verification are strongly encouraged.

Topics of this special session include, but not limited to the following:

  • Planning and scheduling of flexible resources in IES, including thermal/cooling, renewable energy, energy storage, transport flow, data center, etc.
  • Optimization methods for IES, including classical, stochastic and robust optimization, etc.
  • Statistical enhancements, machine learning and data-driven methods to forecast the behaviors of various flexible resources
  • Multi-market scenario modeling and analysis of heat, hydrogen generation of electricity, etc.
  • Techno-economic modeling and evaluation of IES
  • Models to value the options for capacity storage in IES
  • Advanced system models integrating the physics of heat transformations and the time dynamics of generation in IES with CHP (combined heat and power) technologies
  • New models of predicting load and supply under stochastic incidences of resource availability
  • Models for economic value of technologies across regional and spatio-temporal frameworks
  • Modeling the performance of variable renewable energy on techno-economic thresholds
