Multi-energy planning of interconnected systems
— Energy systems are rapidly getting more and more complex with the increasing integration of intermittent energy sources and energy markets coupling together on a large scale. Therefore, the future of energy mixes in most countries is rather uncertain. Regulators, energy producers, public actors and transmission system operators have to take strategic decisions, which have to consider the complexity and the uncertainty of energy systems.
Artelys Crystal Super Grid provides a comprehensive web platform that will help you evaluate the costs and benefits of infrastructure projects or policy proposals, as well as optimize investments in generation assets, networks and flexibility solutions. Along with the most advanced quantitative tools, our interface improves collaboration as well as information sharing and enables you to access to high-performance computing.
