Project duration 15.10.2016 - 14.10.2019The goal of the Kopernikus Project ENavi is to develop a navigation tool that allows to operate the energy system with its different sectors energy, heat, and mobility. It will help to estimate the effects and side effects of economic and political measures in order to guarantee security, efficiency, and climate friendliness of the energy system. For the research project, transdisciplinary solutions will be developed and tested under real conditions in model regions.
ENavi is one of four projects within the funding initiative “Kopernikus“ by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Their goal is to develop technologic and economic solutions for the transition of the energy system within a period of ten years.
