Cost-optimized design


Complex thermal and electrical energy supply systems, the coupling of electricity and heat (e.g. heat pumps), decentralized energy generation and storage (e.g. photovoltaics and battery storage) under consideration of life cycle costs make cost-optimal planning particularly challenging. We draw on extensive expert knowledge from numerical optimization to solve this multi-layered challenge and to develop cost-optimal, individual overall solutions for buildings.
