ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency, will present on 1 February 2019 the key results of the study « Trajectoires d’évolution du mix électrique 2020-2060 » during an event gathering around 100 French experts and stakeholders. This study, undertaken by Artelys, presents seven contrasted evolutions of the French electricity mix, interconnected with neighbouring electricity systems. The electricity mixes are obtained by carrying out an economic optimisation of the trajectory of investments using Artelys Crystal Super Grid. This tool jointly optimises the evolution of the installed capacities between 2020 and 2060, and the detailed operational management of the European power system (hourly time-steps for seven climatic years). Using this approach allows us to carefully assess the costs associated with the variability of solar and wind power.
This study is a first at the European level due to the size and the level of detail of the model (520 million optimisation variables, 670 million constraints). Artelys has relied on the use of high performance computing infrastructure and on innovative decomposition techniques, developed during the POST project, which was supported by ADEME.
— Artelys is working with the Paris City Council on the development of data-centric solutions. These projects aim at making the most of the data available to the Parisian community in order to improve the quality of public policies.
— We are pleased to announce that Artelys Knitro 12.4, the new version of the leading nonlinear optimization solver, is now available! Check out how its improvements on performance and interface versatility can help you leverage mathematical optimization when tackling your problems.
— Within the INSULAE project, Artelys develops a tool for the strategic planning of the energy transition of European Union islands.
— Watch the video presenting the Artelys Crystal Energy Planner software, entirely dedicated to the operational scheduling of energy systems.
