The aim of this project is to develop and demonstrate a decision support tool for design of eco-industrial parks energy systems. The tool will integrate technologies in sector coupling and demand side management to enable industrial park operators to mitigate the need for new energy infrastructure investments in case of new park participants. The tool will devise ways to reduce the park energy peak loads and optimize the internal energy balance. Furthermore, the tool will assist in calculating the dynamic energy consequences of future infrastructure investments or future park prosumers thereby providing decision support for the needed energy infrastructure during the continued growth of the park.
The outcome of the project is a functioning prototype of a software tool for decision support on the energy management of eco-industrial parks – the “GreenLab Designer Lite”.
