Project description:

The research within this project is focused on the potential impact of Global Transnational Grids (GTG’s, connected power systems on different continents with long distance subsea power cables) on decarbonisation of the power system and consequential techno-economic effects. The main approach in his study is developing, testing and simulating a global power system model based on a range of future scenarios to assess the added value of aforementioned GTG’s. Power system modelling within this study occurs by utilizing PLEXOS Integrated Energy Model.
