Project Details


The purpose of the project is to develop demand/supply model and analysis models for the optimization design tool for the low carbon utility complex of new city.

Scope of Work
The project comprises the following tasks:
• Making energy supply models for renewable(RE) technologies(e.g. PV, solar collector, wind turbine), Combined Heat & Power (CHP), heat pump, thermal storage, absorption chillers, waste-to-energy models;
• Making analysis models including demand/supply matching, demand-side control;
• Developing models of optimization for MUC combinations on the basis of capacity and CO2 emission;
• Developing analysis model for economic feasibility of MUC components on the basis of total cost(capital, fuel, maintenance) verses CO2 emission;
