Title: Chapter 8: Planning Tools to Simulate and Optimize Neighborhood Energy Systems

Abstract

This section introduces different energy modeling tools available in Europe and the USA for community energy master planning process varying from strategic Urban Energy Planning to more detailed Local Energy Planning. Two modeling tools used for Energy Master Planning of primarily residential communities, the 3D city model with CityGML, and the Net Zero Planner tool developed for the US Department of Defense installations are described in more details.

  • Energy sustainability is a subject of concern to many nations in the modern world. It is critical for electric power systems to diversify energy supply to include systems with different physical characteristics, such as wind energy, solar energy, electrochemical energy storage, thermal storage, bio-energy systems, geothermal, and ocean energy. Each system has its own range of control variables and targets. To be able to operate such a complex energy system, big-data analytics become critical to achieve the goal of predicting energy supplies and consumption patterns, assessing system operation conditions, and estimating system states - all providing situational awareness to powermore » system operators. This chapter presents data analytics and machine learning-based approaches to enable predictive situational awareness of the power systems.« less
  • The major issue confronting witnesses was the administration's intention of eliminating federal funding for research and development (R and D) and turning the work over to the private sector. Five representatives of the electric-power industry responded to this proposal and to committee questions. They pointed out the need for a continued federal role in long-term, high-risk research and the financial strain of accommodating ongoing research programs to changes in federal funding. They spoke of the industry's record of responding to national needs, particularly in nuclear programs, and of the federal responsibility for keeping US energy program competitive with those ofmore » countries whose governments participate fully with industry to achieve national goals. The hearing record includes the transcript, associated correspondence, a Library of Congress report on the energy-storage program, and supporting testimony for the record. (DCK)« less
