The latest update of Nexus-e
The Nexus-e team has successfully completed the pilot project “The role of flexibility providers in shaping the future energy system” supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. The established platform will serve as a modeling infrastructure to facilitate the analysis of future energy systems.
Nexus-e is mentioned in the GLOBE magazine as a tool helping researchers to understand the future energy system and get ready for the cleantech race.
Computational models can provide technical analysis to objectively evaluate the impact of energy policies. But why are they rarely used in public policymaking? Unclear quality of the input, non-transparent methodology, lack of validation, neglecting behavioural irrationality, and oversimplification are some of the barriers. Nexus-e makes a first step to tackle these challenges.
Congratulations to Elena Raycheva for having successfully presented the methodology and results of the CentIv module at the MEDPOWER 2020 conference!
The Nexus-e team successfully held its annual strategy meeting to conclude the past fruitful year and to draw a roadmap for the future. In a hybrid format with members joining online and in-person, the team aligned on the vision and identified tasks for the coming months and years.
Nexus-e was presented online in the virtual exhibition of the ETH Industry eWeek 2020. It was also demonstrated as a video case study under the topic “energy and construction”. During the event, Prof. Gabriela Hug answered questions regarding the case study and the Nexus-e platform.
