As international sustainability goals and U.S. sustainability initiatives increase, sustainable energy applications are evolving from the conventional single building to the entire city. A 100% renewable energy city (REC) will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in this progression. The energy system of a REC will integrate many subsystems including renewable energy generation, distribution networks, building energy consumption, electric and thermal storage, and interaction with the power grid.
This proposed project is to create the scientific foundation of an innovative computational platform that will enable robust and optimal operation of future renewable energy cities.
