Session Abstract

Energy use is an important driver of overall environmental impact. Concerns about air quality, climate change, and nuclear safety have led to formal and informal Energy Transitions starting around the world. These Energy Transitions will change the way energy is produced, converted, stored, and consumed. Grid operators, industry, politics, and consumers will all have to continuously adapt. However, other important factors than environmental impacts (such as costs, politics, regional interdependencies, risks, or social issues) have to be addressed in true Life Cycle Management models of future energy supply. This session will examine the changing world of LCM of energy, and will include the following subject areas:

• Management and integration of stochastic renewables in LCM models.

• Theoretical and practical challenges posed by modelling the life cycle and long-term environmental implications of Energy Transitions

• Choices at different scales: understanding and managing energy choices and trade-offs from decentralized to centralized energy production, storage and supply.

• Capturing the interplay of changes in the heat sector and the electricity sector in LCM models.

• Integration of prospective, economic, social and other issues in LCM models.

• Communication of complex calculations and results to decision makers
