Multi-objective optimization algorithm coupled to EnergyPLAN software: The EPLANopt model
The planning of energy systems with high penetration of renewables is becoming more and more important due to environmental and security issues. On the other hand, high shares of renewables require proper grid integration ...
GIS-based approach for assessing the energy potential and the financial feasibility of run-off-river hydro-power in Alpine valleys
In the last decade, European attractive policies are favoring the construction of new run-off hydro-power plants. The realization cost of these plants is quite low in mountain areas thanks to small water discharges and ...
La transizione energetica nella macroregione alpina: definizione della situazione di partenza
Territorial energy system are urged to define energy transition strategies. Energy transition poses several challenges, and needs coordinated actions and deep understanding of actual conditions. An example of cross-border ...
A SDSS to integrate ground source heat pump into regional energy strategies
Reaching the ambitious European energy and climate goals asks the heating and cooling (H&C) sector for a drastic reduction in energy consumption and a significant increase of production from renewable energy sources ...
EUSALP, a model region for smart energy transition: setting the baseline
Nowadays energy transition is a recurring topic, which describes the process of an energy system moving from fossil-based sources towards renewables. The transition can unfold at different levels, from the single initiative ...
A GIS Tool to Estimate the Land Footprint of Renewable Energy Sources to Cover the Thermal Energy Demand
New conflicts have been arising between energy production and nature conservation, as a consequence of promoting policies for exploiting renewable sources in order to tackle climate change. Assessing the amount of additional ...
