Area: Energy Infrastructure

Field: Thermal Energy Systems

Main Research: Modelling, simulation and optimisation of district energy systems

Experience: Daniele Basciotti is working in the field of modeling, simulation and optimisation of thermal components of renewable energy systems with a special focus on district heating networks, and as part of his education he dealt with the design of automation/control systems. He is currently working in several national and international research projects such as the FP7 project OrPHEuS dealing with novel cooperative control strategies for hybrid energy grids (electric, thermal and gas networks).
