Initiating project H2020 for the development of an integrated planning instrument for multi-energy systems
PLAMES is a project financed by the European Union and directed by Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen (Germany) in partnership with the University of Bologna, OPTIT and Osmangazi Elektrik Dagitim Anonim Sirketi (Turkey). The first meeting was held in Aachen.
The project’s objective is to develop an integrated planning instrument for multi-energy systems.
Starting with an analysis of the requirements of the various energy sectors (electricity, heating, transportation, and gas), PLAMES will create a model capable of calculating the optimal mix of future energy requirements for all of Europe – as a consequence, promoting the decarbonisation of energy production.
This ambitious goal calls for resolving both computational and mathematical challenges involved in modelling these energy sectors.
Thanks to PLAMES, it will be possible to provide this new tool to diverse stakeholders: European systems planners, governmental and regulatory authorities, technology companies, and operators of networks and public services.
The PLAMES project is financed by the European Union as part of Horizon 2020’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, grant agreement no. 863922.
