Energy Systems Impact
The Energy Systems Impact group aims to gain new insights into the future configuration of the energy system by using the infrastructure of the demonstrators on the Empa site: NEST, move, and ehub. In particular, in addition to the existing research on single systems, the latter's system integration will be explored. The aim is to create new and verified findings in the field of energy systems, which can serve as a decision-making basis for partners from industry, research, and the public sector.
The quantity of data (big data) generated for this purpose or obtained from energy companies must be properly managed and processed, the demonstrators must be operated with a research-oriented approach, and the findings must be edited appropriately for the target groups. The research questions focus on the new possibilities offered by progressive, networked, local technologies.
The research activities of the Energy Systems Impact group are divided into two areas:
