Abstract

Multienergy systems (MES) can optimally deploy their internal operational flexibility to use combinations of different energy vectors to meet the needs of end-users and potentially support the wider system. Key relevant applications of MES are multienergy districts (MEDs) with, for example, integrated electricity and gas distribution and district heating networks. Simulation and optimization of MEDs is a grand challenge requiring sophisticated techno-economic tools that are capable of modeling buildings and distributed energy resources (DERs) across multienergy networks. This article provides a tutorial-like overview of the state-of-the-art concepts for techno-economic modeling and optimizat..
