Energy strategies and markets

EnergyVille researches the economic, technological and behavioural aspects of the current and future energy system and advises on changes in the short and long term. We monitor energy demand and supply, carry out evaluations and provide advice on energy efficiency, renewable energy and flexibility for companies and local, regional and European policy makers.

Our models for long-term optimisation of the energy system are based on the TIMES modelling framework. As a policymaker or company, you can use this to calculate cost-efficient trajectories to a new energy system, based on renewable energy sources and taking into account the climate goals and energy policy.

Our energy market simulation models simulate actual clearing of European energy and flexibility markets. As a market organiser (private, DSO, TSO, …), these can be used to understand the impact of changes to your energy market design on traded volumes and their price.
