Research on Integrated Energy Systems

Traditional energy systems are now increasingly interconnected with each other. An integrated energy system (IES) is emerging, which is composed of multiple terminals and energy networks including thermal (heating/ cooling), natural gas, hydrogen, and electricity systems. It is regarded as an effective way to increase the efficiency of the energy consumption and to increase the renewable energy penetration level. This talk will give an introduction to researches on integrated energy systems at Tianjin University and in China.
