The overall objective of the project is the further development and application of models of the energy and transport system for the evaluation of the resilience of these systems. The aim is to generate insights into the extent to which different stress cases (e.g. technical disturbances, extreme weather situations) affect the systems under consideration, particularly with regard to the digitalisation of the energy system transformation, and how these systems can recover from the disturbances. These findings should provide important orientation knowledge for the further development of the energy system transformation and in particular the flexible sector coupling, and thus contribute to the realisation of a sustainable, safe and cost-effective transformation of the energy and transport system.
An essential contribution of the DLR Institute of Networked Energy Systems in Stuttgart is the implementation and application of novel methods for the resilience evaluation of stationary energy systems. Specifically, the spatially resolved REMix model, which is primarily designed for the analysis of national and continental energy systems, is to be adapted in such a way that the effects of unforeseen events on the energy system can be systematically analysed. Based on this, different stress cases will be investigated.
