Distributed energy systems modeling analysis in the MIT Utility of the Future study

T. Gómez J.P. Chaves C. Batlle I. Abdelmotteleb

February 2014 - July 2016

Funding entity Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)


The objective is to analyze how Distributed Energy Systems (DES) can change electric power systems over the coming decade. This involves the following tasks:
• Identification and classification of existing analytical tools and models including relevant literature that will allow to assess quantitative impacts of new business models on current incumbent activities.
• Development of new analytical models to allow for the evaluation of candidate technologies and business models
• Proposal and formulation of case studies that would illustrate how those new DES technologies and business models may impact incumbent activities.
The project also covers the potential implications that the development of DES can have on the proper design of end-user tariffs.
