Over the last 12 months, in coordination with its “ Transition(s) 2050” project in which four multi-energy carbon-neutral pathways were built for France, Artelys has set up a detailed model able to represent power generation, demand dynamics (including flexibility), and internal networks, with infra-national granularity, from 2020 to 2060. While sensitivity analyses are underway, the already available reports highlight the following findings, among others:
- The transition to energy mixes more reliant on RES-e leads to a more evenly distributed power generation system compared to today’s situation. In order to limit network reinforcements and the costs of flexibility provision, investments in generation have to be planned jointly with network developments. Notably, commissioning renewables in best-LCOE areas (disregarding network constraints) leads to higher overall costs.
- Along with the reinforcement of interconnectors and the increase of cross-border exchanges, the development of demand-side flexibility is key to ensure that the power system functions in a cost-efficient manner. Electric vehicles’ smart-charging and electrolysers’ flexible operations, notably, are crucial to adequately integrate renewables.(see demand profile before/after DSF below).
— We are pleased to announce that Artelys Knitro 14.0 is now available! This new version enables compagnies to solve complex non-linear optimization problems with unprecedented efficency and precision.
Artelys to participate in the demonstration of digital twins for optimal grid and market actions in Europe
— Artelys is involved in the three-year Horizon Europe project TwinEU, which aims to create a digital twin of the entire European electricity grid with a unique consortium bringing together grid and market operators, research entities and technology providers.
— Planning for the energy transition requires the ability to optimize energy system development pathways, considering complex interactions and constraints, particularly concerning interactions between sectors and vectors. In this context, Artelys has developed a new method for solving these large-scale mathematical problems.
— The stakes of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have become a strategic issue for companies, regardless of their field of activity or size. As an expert, Artelys provides you with full assistance, from the design stage to the implementation of your first AI solution, by building with and for your team a roadmap tailored to your business.
