Planning Tool - to determine the optimal network and storage development in Germany - integrated into an OpenEnergy-Platform
Development of a holistic grid planning tool as an integral part of an open energy modelling platform aiming
at the determination of an optimal grid and storage expansion in Germany.
The project open_ego aims at developing a transparent, inter-grid-level operating grid planning tool to
investigate economically viable grid expansion scenarios, considering alternative flexibility options such as
storages or redispatch. The tool is developed on a public virtual research platform which is developed in context of this project as well. This research platform is intended to serve stakeholders
as a component of participation in the process of the Energy Transition.
Project duration: 01.08.2015 - 31.08.2018

The aim of the research project open_eGo was to develop a transparent, holistic grid planning tool that can determine economically optimal grid and storage expansion for Germany and interacts with an open energy system modeling platform. The open source tool landscape created around the eGo grid planning tool can model all voltage levels in Germany, simulate the basic functioning of the electricity market, taking into account the physical AC load flow behavior and at the same time optimizing grid and storage expansion. Furthermore, the OpenEnergyPlatform
developed in the project enables a systematic, cross-model use of open energy data.
