Today, the development and choice of technologies for energy conversion and distribution require holistic approaches that are oriented towards the dimensions of sustainability. In our research, we are mainly interested in how the selection of technologies and the coordination of their deployment through markets and other instruments enables an economically viable and socially acceptable energy supply that involves as low ecological risks as possible.

The interplay between grids and markets in the electricity system, i. e. coordinating the technical design of power grids and the possible provisioning of auxiliary services by market players, gains importance in this context. Besides, coupling electricity systems with other energy systems, like heat supply or the mobility sector, leads to new challenges, but also provides new potential for delivering flexibility.

In our research, we are striving for holistic solutions enabling a sustainable energy supply in the future. The work can be structure in the focus areas depicted in the following:
