Access Presentation

This presentation by Thomas Kalitzky, CEO and Founder of Qantic GmbH, discusses a novel technique using machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) that can help to efficiently design off-grid systems that comprise renewable energy sources, energy storage and thermal generators while anticipating challenging operation regimes.

In a case study the algorithm is compared to conventional optimization methods that are used in the course of system design. We quantify the impact on the component sizing and the reduction of costs and emissions that can be achieved by using the AI-based algorithm. Finally, we will give an overview on how AI can generally leverage the global expansion of off-grid energy systems.

This presentation is from the Microgrid Global Innovation Forum that was held in September 2020.
