Vission and Mission

  • Facilitate international collaboration for research & development in synergies between energy networks;

  • Develop concepts and technologies for energy systems integration and demonstrate the techno-economic benefits;

  • Promote whole systems approach to energy systems design and operation


  • Interactions and interdependencies between networked energy systems will be investigated (e.g. electricity, natural gas, district heating, district cooling, hydrogen)

  • Research only focusing on one individual energy vector is out of scope (e.g. voltage control of electrical distribution networks)
