RESEARCH AREAS

Energy Systems

Description

We develop hybrid technologies and solutions integrating renewable energy generation at different scales. Among them, we develop solutions to support management of District Heating and Cooling (DHC) networks, for improved operation of the different generation, distribution and end-use components, including the exploitation of waste energy recovery potential in industrial processes.

Our solutions optimize communications for a secure and efficient operation of renewable power generation and industrial plants, particularly addressing the characterization of failures within their electrical networks.

Finally, we work on solutions for the integration of hydrogen as a key vector in the transition towards the decarbonisation of the global energy model.
