Decentralized Energy Simulation Model

Model for optimising decentralised energy systems based on different technology set-ups, tariff assumptions and funding opportunities.

Our offer

With this model, decentralised energy systems are analysed and optimised from a technical and economic point of view. The focus lies on energy communities and positive energy districts.

Using this model, different types of energy communities/buildings, technologies (PV, electric cars, heat pumps) and tariffs can be simulated and compared on an economic level.


The model in detail:

The model takes various assumptions on regulatory framework conditions into account, such as the possibility of valorising flexibility.


In addition, various technologies (PV, storage, heat pumps, electric cars) can be selected in the model. This serves as the basis for creating a production and load profile over 1 year and calculating simple technical parameters ( level of self-consumption, level of self-sufficiency).


Based on this, the economic benefits (savings per household, net present value, internal interest rate) are calculated. Savings, for example through a reduced grid tariff or income from the marketing of flexibilities, are taken into account.
