Dr. Nicholas Good from University of Manchester is visiting ERC for two days and will deliver a seminar entitled “Techno-economic modelling of smart multi-energy districts”.

Seminar abstract : The growth of distributed generation and the prospect of greater penetration of demand response and storage resources at the low-voltage level is increasing interest in smart energy districts. Concurrently the prospect of electrification of heating and transport and adoption of CHP plant is increasing district level multi-energy interactions.  This seminar will introduce the technical and economic models being developed in the group of Dr Mancarella at the University of Manchester to deliver insights and quantitative results with respect to smart, multi-energy districts. In particular, two district models, a high-resolution physical simulation model and a stochastic optimisation model, will be presented. Work on multi-energy network and aggregation modelling will then be explored, before the economic modelling, which completes the developed techno-economic framework, is presented.

Dr. Good received the Ph.D. degree in Power Systems from the University of Manchester, UK, in 2015, and is now a Research Associate in Smart Urban Energy Systems in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the same institution. Dr. Good has co-authored more than ten peer-reviewed research papers and four book chapters and has participated in several European research projects including ADDRESS, COOPERaTE, DIMMER, SEAF and H2ME-2. Contributions in these projects have primarily related to modelling and assessment, under uncertainty, of new business models for multi-energy districts, or other demand-side resources.


Refreshments will be provided. All are welcome to attend
