Urban Energy Systems

The Urban Energy Systems Laboratory focusses on the development of methods, strategies and solutions to transform buildings, neighbourhoods and cities into energy efficient and decarbonized systems. With our research we seek for solutions that significantly contribute in reaching national and global emission targets. Our core competences lie in the modelling, design and assessment of building and urban systems with focus on energy hubs, multi-energy grids, and integration of renewable energy and storage systems.

Our strategy is:

  • to develop innovative building energy systems and technologies,
  • to design relevant numerical models and analysis techniques for assessing the optimal integration, design and operation of multi-energy systems from building to district and higher scales, and
  • to test and implement the developed strategies through demonstration in close collaboration with research and industry partners.
