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, that suppose they master the complexity and the uncertainty of energy systems.

Artelys Crystal Super Grid provides a comprenhensive interface that, along with the most advanced quantitative tools will help you evaluate the costs and benefits and optimize of transmission/production/storage.

What is the level of curtailment?

How are market prices changing?

Study the benefits of infrastructure projects

What are the economic and environmental impacts of a project?

How are energy flows impacted?

How are the benefits of a project allocated between consumers and producers?

Evaluate the impacts of climate and energy policies

What are the impacts of new market rules?

What are the economic conditions ensuring an appropriate level income for new market entrants?

What are the impacts on flexibility needs?

Plan the evolution of energy systems

What is the optimal technology portfolio to achieve climate objectives?

What are the adequate flexibility solutions to accompany RES technologies?

What is the optimal investment rhythm for the transition to materialise?

Create your own models thanks to the power of Crystal technology

The flexibility of the Crystal technology allows the customisation of models and exchange formats.

When acquiring a “Partner” license, these functions are directly accessible to you.

Key features

— A ready-to-use modelling tool

A library of state-of-the-art models resulting from our numerous customer experiences: electricity production technologies, gas and heat assets, long-term contracts, flexible demand, coupling between energy carriers, etc.

 

An accelerated initialization phase is ensured by the provision of datasets based on public sources (physical parameters, costs, long-term scenarios, etc.)

 

Multi-model management: the software allows for multiple models to coexist, allowing you to adapt to the situation you want to study

— Transparency

An exhaustive documentation of the models allows the user to find the definition of all parameters and to see the equations which bind them. All the modelling assumptions are presented.

 

The value of all the parameters can be modified simply via the interface or import functionalities.

— Multi-scenarios optimization of large systems

The systems studied can cover several regions or countries and several energy carriers (electricity, gas, heat, hydrogen, water, etc.)

 

Possibility of simulate a large number of scenarios in parallel, e.g.to assess the impacts of different climatic conditions

 

Simulation: activation of flexibilities to reach the economic optimum while respecting the supply-demand balance and all techno-economic constraints

 

Capacity optimization: finding the optimal investments taking into account all the hours of the studied years

 

Joint optimization of investments and operational management of the system (on 8760 hours per year) to finely model the intermittency of renewable energies
