Guest lecture By Dr. Qiuwei Wu


26.08.2019 kl. 10.00 - 11.00


There will be a guest lecture on August 26 prior to the PhD defence of Pengfei Li


Smart Energy Solutions for Renewable Energy Systems


Associate Professor Qiuwei Wu, DTU


10:00 -11:00


Environmental concerns and the quest for energy supply independence have resulted in increasing penetration of renewable energy sources (RESs) and a move toward electrification of transportation and heating. With the long-term goal of developing renewable based energy systems, the integration of electricity, heat and gas systems has become necessary in order to realize efficient and secure operation of the future renewable based energy systems. The interactions among electricity, heat and gas sectors can provide further flexibility to handle the fluctuations from renewables. In the talk, the smart energy solutions for the 2050 Danish energy systems will be introduced which integrates multi-energy sectors. In the end, the Power2Gas technology will be introduced and its technical and economic feasibility in the future energy system will be discussed.
