Environmental concerns and the quest for energy supply independence have resulted in increasing penetration of renewable energy sources and a move towards electrification of transportation and heating. With the long-term goal of developing renewable sources based energy systems, the integration of electricity, heat and cooling, hydrogen and gas systems has become necessary to realize efficient and secure operation of the future renewable-based energy systems. The interactions among the electricity, heat and cooling, hydrogen and gas sectors can provide further flexibility to handle the fluctuations from renewables.
The coupling of the abovementioned energy systems complicates the modeling, planning, operation, and control of multi-energy systems, also posing a new challenges from the perspective of the implementation of state of the art and novel technology needed. Modeling of energy systems is essential for their optimal planning, operation, and control. Furthermore, long-term planning shall take into account the coupled operation of the whole energy system.
In an electricity-market environment, electricity is mainly traded in daily and bi-lateral markets. There are no daily markets for heat and gas systems. To improve the overall efficiency of a multi-energy system, an integrated energy market should be developed.
Power-to-gas and power-to-heat technologies can play an important role in the future energy systems. The modeling and system integration of the technologies are very important.
This special issue focuses on the planning, operation, and control of integrated multi-carrier energy systems, as well as on the technologies needed for a successful operation of multi-energy systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
· Multi-energy-system modeling
· Operation and control of multi-energy systems
· Long-term planning of multi-energy systems
· Integrated energy markets
· Power-to-gas system integration
· Power-to-heat system integration
· Testbed of multi-energy systems
· Technology enabling efficient monitoring and operation of multi-energy systems.
