Abstract

In recent years, many governments are promoting a widespread deployment of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) together with an optimization of energy consumption. The main purpose consists on decarbonizing the energy production and reducing the CO2 footprints. However, RES imply uncertain energy production. To foster this transition, we need novel tools to model and simulate Multi-Energy-Systems combining together different technologies and analysing heterogeneous information, often in (near-) real-time. In this paper, first we present the main challenges identified after a literature review and the motivation that drove this research in developing MESsi. Then, we propose MESsi, a novel distributed infrastructure for modelling and cosimulating Multi-Energy-Systems. This infrastructure is a framework suitable for general purpose energy simulations in cities. Finally, we introduce possible simulation scenarios that have different spatio-temporal resolutions. Space resolution ranges from the single dwelling up to districts and cities. Whilst, time resolution ranges from microseconds, to simulate the operational status of distribution networks, up to years, for planning and refurbishment activities.
