New Publication: AMIRIS Advancement - Final Report (full version), Summary
With the agent-based simulation model AMIRIS influences of different regulatory frameworks on the involved actors at the market integration of renewable energy can be analysed. These kinds of analyses are necessary to be able to construct sound support schemes to promote market development on the one hand but prevent windfall profits by some actors on the other hand.
The simulation can be set up with various parameter configurations which makes the AMIRIS model very flexible. Thus, it can show possible impacts on the microlevel (actors) as on the macrolevel (energy system) of different variants of support instruments like the market premium or of changes in the energy economic framework to decision makers.
