Research areas

I am conducting research within the fields of Energy Planning and Power Markets. My interests are especially focused towards integration of renewable energy in the energy system. My research activities includes:

  • Optimization of energy storage in connection with renewables (investment and operation)
    • Download my first Matlab-based simulation model here : Windhydtools
  • The use of hydro power as a balancing asset
  • Investment planning of grids, including a future North Sea Grid
  • Large scale integration of renewable energy sources in Europe
