Abstract

We briefly review the general concept and expected market potential of microgrids, then discuss the optimization challengesassociated with planning local cross-sectorial energy systems. A fair technology-neutral approach to this optimization task leads to a hard problem, which has to be tackled with advanced methods of mathematical optimization.The power of this approach is illustrated ina case study, concerning the replacement of heating systems in an alpine valley. In this case study we see both the potential for cost reduction and for the reduction of CO2emissions by an integrated planning approach.
