Energy System Analysis

Electromobility is seen by many as the key to success for the energy transition. At Fraunhofer IFAM, researchers are investigating entire energy systems as a prerequisite for electromobility in particular and the energy transition as a whole. A cornerstone for this research focus is the analysis and evaluation of energy supply systems.

The decarbonization and increasing sector coupling of electricity, heat, and transport require new, more flexible strategies; for example, in the demand-oriented expansion of the charging infrastructure for electromobility in neighborhoods. Fraunhofer IFAM develops studies and concepts and analyzes the economic efficiency and regulatory framework of the electricity and heating market.

Analyses, potential studies and consulting on:

  • Electromobility/charging infrastructure and housing industry
  • System integration of stationary/mobile storage
  • Energy supply and climate protection
  • Energy-efficient buildings and neighborhoods
  • Combined heat and power
  • Piped heat supply
  • Digital heat demand maps
  • Sector coupling
  • Energy-economic framework conditions
